Thanksgiving was great...we all crammed in my mom's newly fixed up house (not quite finished yet) and had a 'big-family' good time. That means everyone was loud, we laughed a lot, and things got spilled. Good times, good times. (And no children got in any real trouble or were injured throughout the course of the day! Success!!)
I, of course, as ALWAYS, forgot to take pics!! I get so mad at myself - I never remember to bring my camera places! Yesterday I remembered to bring it, but in all the chaos forgot to get it out!! Arrgghhh....
The realtor came through my mom's house and was pleased, and came back with a great number. I thought we were done the work, but he pointed out a few more things we should do to help the 'sellability'. After he left I nearly cried. Not because it's terribly major things (and least compared to what we already did), but because I thought we were finally done. Not. Anyway, we're trying to quick finish those things, and we (meaning Mom) signs the papers and lists it on Monday; then we are praying hard for the right buyer to come - QUICKLY!!
It's become more emotional than I thought thinking about selling the house. Maybe even more so after we put all the work into it. But we talked again with Mom about her feelings, and she's sure about selling, not only because she is not able to do it financially, she really doesn't want the weight of the responsibility for it either and all that goes along with that. Which I completely understand and agree. But it's still hard just the same. So we'd appreciate your prayers, as it doesn't make it any easier that all this is happening in the midst of the holidays, which are still rough, even though it's not our 'first', without Daddy.
