We Sold Our House–For Real This Time!

Posted on

So if you’ve been following me on Twitter, you probably already heard about this, but this is the official announcement: We sold our house. The home inspection is done, we have a couple of minor repairs to make, our contract is set on the new house (the awesome one we tried to buy last year), […]

Sunday Summary

Well, DABWAHA is over, at least for me.  Despite the AMAZING efforts of #TeamKait, which got us ahead of Veronica Roth for about 45 minutes yesterday–a feat which I watched with more nail biting and nerves than I did that year MSU and Ole Miss went into double overtime during Egg Bowl–, we ultimately lost […]

If you’re stopping by today for a dose of positivity and happy for your day…I provide you with….The Peek-A-Boo Kitten. Okay yeah, I admit, that helped my disappointed/cranky a little bit.  I mean, who can watch that and not feel better about the world in general? However, what follows is not cute and fluffy, so […]

No Longer Yours

Posted on

So the thing I have come to realize about selling a house is that the moment you list it, the house is no longer yours.  It doesn’t matter if it takes 2 weeks or 2 years to sell, from the moment it goes on the market you can no longer live in the house as […]
