House Update

So, our house sold. 

About 2 weeks ago, we got a really low bid offer.  About $15 grand lower than our asking price, plus 3.5% to offset closing costs.  Please, people.  We did not inflate our asking price that much.  So we counter-offered the full asking price with 3.5% off for those pesky closing costs.

They accepted.

We need to be out of our home by July 20th.

I am starting to get really stressed out about getting everything packed.  Really, really stressed.  The last time we moved, I had two children.  And a lot less stuff.  I swear we have a whole load in our backyard alone.  Picnic table, play house, bikes, plastic play structure with the slide, plus a shed full of stuff.

Ryan has GLAD training that whole week prior to us having to be moved out.  Could the timing be a lot worse?

We have a house we are trying to purchase.  If everything works out, it should close about the same time. 

But there are so many variables.  We are dealing with a bank, and we had our inspection last Friday (the reason we had to be back so quickly after Ryan's conference) and there are a few things that need to be addressed.  Banks move veeeerrrrrrryyyy slowly.

We could be homeless for a bit.  We have a place lined up that we could rent if we need to.  But I would really rather not have to move, and then move again in a couple of weeks. 

All these jumbled thoughts leave me awake at night.
