August 21, 2009

We are winding up for our second weekend of open houses. Last weekend we were pleased with the response we had and we have had tons of people take flyers from the box in the yard (although I think they have slowed down now that all of the people in the neighbor have gotten one:).

We have listed our house on MLS and the agent we used also pushes it out to about 30 other real estate sites. We received a call today from a guy who left a message, asking some questions about the house. Unfortunately, his call came in when Nick was talking to daddy on my phone so it ended up going to voice mail. We left a return message this evening but have not heard back yet.

I listed the open house on Craig's List today also. It will be interesting to see how many people come by this weekend. I think we really missed the busy season, since people normally try to move before their kids start the school year.

The boys and I had a good week. The house was very clean so we really took it easy and had fun for much of the week. I took them to the used book store on Monday and we picked out a handful of great books. We have been doing lots of reading this week. I also ordered a couple of things from Amazon. One is a kid's calendar kind of thing that we change together every morning. It includes seasons, weather also and it is really cute. The boys are both enjoying it. I'll write more about it later or maybe post a picture. One of the other things I ordered is a positive parenting incentive program type of thing for kids. I'll write more about that later too. We have not received it yet but it sounds really good and positive. I also ordered a couple of books for the boys.

I spent a good deal of today cleaning again and that will likely be my life on Fridays until we sell the house. The dusting and floors have to be done on Friday, in order for them to look good for both Saturday and Sunday. So, that's my life on Friday's for now.

Right now, everyone is asleep except me. I am still ramping down from all of the work I did tonight, while the dad was putting the boys down. I had better get to sleep though. Good night!

Hey Lea, it sounds like you're not as stressed as you were there for a little while. I hope all is going well. I'll pray that you get a bite on your house soon. Tell the boys I miss them and give hugs and kisses for me. I love all of you.
