Looks like were moving!

After being in our house for almost 6 years it is time to move on.  Over the past few years we have been kicking around the idea of adding on and expanding for some more square footage.  So after we stopped kicking and getting more serious we looked into adding on and realized that in an effort to keep a little money in our pocket it would be more economical for us to just sell what we have and find something else that has a little more space.

We decided to hire a realtor and throw the house on the market to "see" what would happen. Upon talking with our realtor we were informed, with the current economy and housing market, that we would probably not be able to sell at the price we needed AND walk away with any cash for a down payment on something else.  Well, God sure does have a way of communication and working when he sells your house after only being on the market for 4 weeks AND for the price that we were hoping to get.  Can you say AMEN to that!

So, as things look now, we will be out of our home before Thanksgiving (yes, the buyers are kicking us out so they can get in for the holidays  haha). Don't get me wrong, this is all a big blessing.  There is still, however, emotions that I am overcome by just thinking that I will not be in my home for at least one more holiday season.  So sad and exciting all at once.  I think this all just happened so fast and very unexpectantly.  

Where to go from here....we are not sure!  Yep, at this very moment only the Lord knows.  We "think" we are planning on staying close by but then we have also talked about seeing if this might be our time to get back to our home state of TX.  Who knows.  Moving out of state would definitely depend on the hubby's job.  Right now we are just taking things one day at a time.
