moving on up

2 Comments

It’s depressing to look at my blog. I know I haven’t posted since, what-? Last Monday? Forgive me, please. I just hit 24 wks (6 months) pregnant and I’m TIRED. By the time I get home from work I’m lucky if I manage to watch an episode of TV, much less knit anything, MUCH less blog. The lack of knitting and lack of anything interesting in life leaves me with pretty much nothing to blog about.

But there might be stuff soon. Yannick and I have 90% officially decided that we will be moving. Yes, at 6 months pregnant, we are going to be putting our house on the market. (As an aside- forget getting married and having a baby…there’s something about saying “we’re putting our house on the market” that makes me feel oddly grown-up).

We have met with an agent to evaluate our home and tomorrow he is coming back to take photos and measurements and so on, and by next week I think we’ll be listed on MLS. ACK. He’s of the “sell first, buy later” camp, figuring it will be harder to get a buyer than it is to find a house we like, so we should ensure that we’re not stuck with 2 mortgages by selling first. Our only condition is that we sell by March 31st (sell- not move) because if we haven’t sold by then, we will have only a month and a half to get our house ready for baby. I refuse to cut it closer than that. I’m not sure when we’ll actually move…I guess sometime in the end of June or later, or if it is sooner then it will have to be before the 3rd week of April in case this kid is early. If the move is sooner it would be a huge rush to pack, but we can do it if we work hard. If it is later we’ll have more time to pack slowly, but I won’t be able to help as much ‘cus I’ll be busy with the little one.

So we’ll see. I’ll update with more info as I have it, but for now that’s all I know. We’re going on the market, and then the house-hunting will commence in earnest!

  1. Wow 🙂 That is great news Jenn 🙂 Good luck on selling your house fast.

    Wouldn’t it be fun though to start looking at houses too? Just to see what you can get for the money you’ll have.
