What goes up...

Well, as high as I was on Friday about all the progress made, I crashed yesterday! The lovely people renting the first home we bought in Maryland told us that they were going to finish up with the lease and buy a house. And it's not ours. Which, I can honestly say, I can't blame them for--seeing as we moved from it as well. When you have two golden retrievers, a yard that can be measured in square feet (as in 8200 square feet) just doesn't compare to 3 acres of woods and creek. So...thankfully we know ahead of time and have until December 31 to rent (or sell, ha ha) the house out. This is a crash for me simply because the plan of bringing home baby and STAYING home with baby is dependent upon us not having a house (and mortgage) just sitting around. John is not worried, so I shouldn't be. The message in church this morning was of hope-and it was very comforting to know that hope for earthly things just doesn't even compare to the everlasting hope that we have in Christ. Leave it to God to put things in perspective for me.

Soooo...I'm not worried. It's going to be just fine. We'll rent it out--plenty of time. And if not, we'll have plenty of money saved to let it sit for a bit until the market picks up and we'll sell it. It's going to be fine. Period.

Oh, and friends, if ever a grammar error exists, PLEASE let me know as soon as you spot it!! You know what a grammar freak I am! I just reread my last post and apparently, finance is what I meant to type, but fiance is what I actually typed. Oh, the horror of it all!


  1. If you do decide to sell the house...I know of a great realtor. She and her husband work as a team and they have sold three of our firends' homes. One was sold last December in this market!

    Anyway, I am sure that you can rent it. No worries.

  2. God takes care of all things. He's already got this handled.
    I just read your entire blog, and as a former English teacher, I only found a couple of minor grammatical errors. No worries. Thank you for your blog.
    I sent you an email; please let me know if you received it. Blessings on you and your family.
