All That In Seven Days?

Some weeks are dull, where nothing extraordinary happens.  And then there are some weeks like last week...most of the events were fun and exciting, so at least we had that going for us.

The one sad thing?  Spanky's passing, of course.  The house still seems a bit empty without him - like the two remaining dogs just aren't enough.  (Don't get me wrong - they ARE enough...we won't be adding any additional four-legged friends to the house at this time!)  But there have been many tears shed this week over the loss of our sweet Spanky.

Instead, let's focus on the positive!  We listed our house last Friday,  February 22.  We had our first showing on Sunday afternoon, and then it was a whirlwind few days of showings.  On Tuesday, we had four showings, where one was a repeat on the same day.  By Wednesday night, we had three offers, all above asking price!  After a few counters, we accepted an offer, and now are pending the sale, based on the outcome of the inspections and appraisals.  All I can say is what a different market it is now than it was just four months ago!  Fingers crossed that it all goes well over the next few weeks, and we can move forward to a late May closing.

Where are we going to live?  Great question!  We're going through the Parade of Homes tomorrow while our house is being inspected...plus we have a few lots and pre-existing homes that we need to view soon.  This is definitely a seller's market, as there is just not a ton of options available at this time.  We just need to keep our eyes and options open, and see what comes up. 

Other than that, we had a very busy week at work with the 2nd and 3rd rollouts of the big project I am a part of.  Everything has gone fairly well so far, which is a relief - this is a high profile account, and all of the hard work put in over the last several months has resulted in a chaos-free launch.  Yeah!

We have Ava's school conference on Monday night, and I am very interested in hearing how she's doing at school.  It will be nice to have some one-on-one time with her teacher to ask questions about Ava's learning.  And today, she had a fun little birthday party today for one of the boys in her class...it was weird to drop her off for a few hours, and pick her up when it was all done.  But...I got so much done during those two hours! :)

So, what a crazy week we have have...I'm feeling very blessed this week, and hope the good news continues!
