SOLD

We got back from our National Lampoon's Big Cedar Vacation yesterday afternoon. I always unpack and get the laundry done right out of the gate. This morning we woke up and I put my favorite dinner in the crock-pot-Roast!

I ran to the store for groceries and we sold our house.

We ate our yummy dinner and.......

What?....

Yes, that's right, we sold our house. It was NUTS. We listed on Adverwise on a free 30 day listing. We decided last week we'd leave the house on the market until this coming Friday, which is when our 30 day free add runs out. In my mind I had decided we'd probably just end up refinancing.

Today I had about a million voice mails. 2 were a couple wanting to schedule a showing. They loved the house and made an offer right then and there.

This kind of feels like that Sunday night about 7 years ago when Shane and I were sitting around and decided we wanted to remodel the kitchen so we got some sledge hammers and went hammering away. No real concrete plan. We don't have another house right now. Kinda fun. Mostly crazy but kinda fun.

The reason we are selling is because when we bought this house we did a 5 year arm-meaning at the end of 5 years you either sell or refinance. Our time us up in about 8 months which is why we decided to stick a sign in the yard. It seemed like a wise decision (if God opened the door) to sell, versus putting more money into our little house (which we love).

So, that's that. We had my favorite dinner tonight which made me smile. We've been reading a book called God Is Closer Than You Think. It has me looking for where God is in each day. It just cracks me up that He had me put a roast in the crock-pot-head out to the grocery store-come back home-sell our house-and eat a celebration dinner.
