Little Update

Long story short: I'm exhausted. I have been cleaning the house every waking moment to accommodate the open houses and showings. One thing is sure--keeping a house spotlessly clean is a full-time job! I can't keep this up much longer!

The good news is that someone might be interested--it's too early to know for sure, but please keep your fingers crossed for me. Otherwise the non-stop cleaning might kill me!

I'm also baking cookies non-stop--I want my house to have that homey cookie smell. So it's actually a good thing I'm cleaning so much so I can burn off all the calories from all the cookie dough I'm eating.

And another apology for not doing much blog visiting lately--I have been storing our laptops (and phones!) in the car as part of my decluttering spree, so until things settle down here I have very limited computer access. So when I'm not cleaning, I'm driving around aimlessly with a car full of electronics waiting for people to leave my house. Bear with me!

Hang in there!! Your house looks AWESOME and all your hard work will pay off so don't get discouraged!! I know you're exhausted but just think about once you're moved and settled into your new home! You can take a nice long bubble bath!! Good luck with selling quickly!

Your house prob looks FAB! And the cookie smell would get me every time! It is prob refreshing, considering most houses on the market right now are forclosures and smell like cat piss- believe me- I have seen all of them.
GOOD LUCK!!

Hopefully your home will sell soon! My mom sells real estate, so I know how hard things are right now.

Z's Mom said...

Oh my I hope your house sells soon. Don't worry about us...we'll be hanging around for whenever you have time. Don't stress about your blog....you have plenty of other things to stress about right now.

Z's Mom said...

Oh....and make sure your realtor stresses to the potential buyer that this is "THE" Fun House....don't they know?

OMG I'm dreading it as I'm going to list my house again in the Spring...it's so horrible isn't it? Try to relax a little!

Allison said...

Fingers are crossed! Good Luck...I remember those days of house showings, but I had a 3 week old baby that I had to pack up each time. Were we crazy or what?!

Becky said...

Oh my gosh! I know exactly how you feel. When we sold our house we only had the 3 kids then and THANK GOSH it sold in 1 week because it about KILLED me trying to keep that house spotless. It was like impossible and very frustrating!
I am crossing my fingers that you sell yours quickly!

Kristin said...

Hang in there. Hope things sell quickly.

Jen said...

Oh you are too funny. I hope that person bites.

CaraBee said...

I have a hard enough time getting my house spotless once a week, with only one child. I can't even imagine working around five! Which is to say, your stress? Is completely understandable. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!
