Was It Yesterday This Morning?

Trying to finish, list, and sell our house has been a huge endeavor. When we finally got to the selling phase, all we could really do was wait and pray.

So that's what we've been doing. A lot of waiting and a lot of praying.

Rewind to Labor Day weekend. Nick felt inspired that if we built a particular section of fence along our property line, we would get on offer on our house by Rigby's birthday. Nick got right to work, and the fence was done the following day.

Last week we had our first unexpected showing. The house was less OCD than I like. I was very stressed about the toys on the floor and the unmade beds. I could do nothing about it. But the people liked it! A few days later they scheduled our first second showing. I got to redeem myself. The house was perfect, the lawn was mowed, and there were fresh-baked cookies on the table (and their scent in the air!).

This morning we received and accepted their offer! We are so excited!

Rigby's birthday was yesterday, so my only question is:

Somewhere in the world, was it still yesterday this morning?

All I can say is I know you're living your lives right. This is a shaky market, and times are rough in the real estate sector just about everywhere. Chalk it up to Someone in heaven who loves you and is looking out for your little family. What a tender mercy. Love you guys always, Mandy
