If you’re reading this post, you may or may not have noticed by now, that there was no Swoon Worthy post this past Saturday, and that Monday came and went without a Weekend Recap, complete with lots of pictures of our fun-filled, relaxing few days together as a family.
So… Here’s the deal; moving week is officially upon us… As in the trucks roll in on Friday. This Friday. Our house, whether we were ready or not, hit the market this past Sunday.
The last few days have been spent scrambling to make things look pretty, saying goodbye to our dear family and friends, and most importantly, trying to keep M&E’s lives/routines as normal as possible.
I’ve never been great under pressure, and in this current situation, I don’t seem to be fairing much better.
Yesterday our realtor mixed up showing times for our house with one for another property, and a car rolled into the driveway and sat there for a solid half hour before we realized what was going on. Low and behold, 5 minutes later, Mike and I were scrambling to pile our kids into the car and get out of here, as potential buyers were coming through the front door. Hands down one of the most awkward experiences I’ve had in a long time.
Knowing that strangers are walking through your house while all of your personal belongings are there and you are not, is such a strange and violating feeling…. As I’m sure any of you who have sold a house can understand.
It is what it is at this point. We only have to endure a few days of this chaos before we ship off to New York with all of our stuff in tow, so I’m trying to keep my eye on the prize.
In the meantime, I may not be blogging as much as usual, but I am still checking in on Instagram (@contemporarydomestics) if you feel inclined to follow along for this crazy ride!
