I’m not going to sugar coat the fact that over the span of my last posts, things haven’t exactly been going swimmingly for me in my life. As much as people of the internet bemoaned and stated how much of a dumpster fire that the year 2016 was, I’d have to say that 2017 hasn’t exactly been a drastic improvement over the year removed. If anything at all, I would say that I’ve been more stressed, more emotionally drained and more taxed this year than I was last.
So to update from the last time I sat down and wrote for a site that’s still down and out of commission, Jen and I finished moving out of the house. The house is not only empty and completely vacated, it’s up on the market, and doing surprisingly well in terms of buyer interest and awareness that it’s on the market. Obviously, interest does not equal it actually selling, so only time will tell just what happens with all these people and realtors marching in and out of my house on parade because I can see it happening because I still have security cameras that let me see timestamps of when people come and go.
Getting the house prepared for listing was a tremendously taxing task both physically and emotionally. Every single day for just under two weeks, weekday and weekend, was spent painting walls, patching up gaps or holes in walls, painting walls, cleaning out belongings, painting walls, cleaning floors and painting walls.
Painting walls is pretty much the worst activity ever.
