Screeching Halt

Did you ever feel like you've come to a Screeching Halt?

Those of you who know me know that we have been preparing our house for sale.

I have worked since mid-summer to clear out the excess, fix and repair things, and paint and spruce up the house to prepare to put it on the market. And as the past several months have gone by the housing market has been doing a gradual downward spiral. I fully expected we'd be sitting on this house for months waiting...

Well - the house was listed on Thursday... we had an Open House on Sunday... we had a second viewing on Tuesday and by the end of that day we had an offer we accepted.

I know I now have lots to finish up - pack up the rest of the stuff we still have in the house - pack up my vintage sewing machines out in the shed... but after all this rushing to get stuff done... it's pretty much over... I feel like I've come to a screeching halt.

I don't have to keep it clean for viewings... I can keep my toothbrush holder on the counter... I can leave the dogs water bowls out... and I can clutter my kitchen counter if I want to! LOL

I just feel sorta weird... I hadn't expected this part to be over so quickly...

A new POD was delivered today at 7:30 AM - making that 3 PODS sitting in the driveway. All the rest of our stuff will go in there along with all my machines. Then all three will be hauled away... off to our new life!

So I guess I best get busy getting the rest of this done.

Enjoy the momentary rest.
