the sun came out yesterday... and it came out in a big way!
it was awesome!
i even... at one point... took off my cardigan.
my skin basically resembles elmers glue...  
so i was thinking maybe i'd get a small kiss from the sun.
not exactly... ten minutes later... i was freezing again.
in due time i suppose... especially with a texas summer in our near future!


the activity on the house has begun pick up.
with the hibernation season finally coming to a close.
ha!
i say that... as i just got back from dropping the girl's at school...
using my windshield wipers to swoosh away the snow flurries!
oh goodness... spring for sure.


among the showings... we had an open house too.
i tell ya... having your house on the market is such an odd thing isn't it?
i mean... not the selling part...
the having all the perfect strangers through your home part.
as i run around... making sure things are just so...
making sure there are no smudges...
no crumbs...
cleaning every nook & cranny...
making sure it sparkles...
i always wonder... who ARE the people coming to see it?
i can't help it.
i am such a curious person... if i could i'd plant the house with tons of bugs...
i'd hide 'em everywhere...
then i could hEaR what they think!
i SO would do that!  :O)
all we are ever told is...
"your home is so beautiful"...
"it shows so well"...
"they just loved it"...
"the response was so great"...
"they wanted the house just like it is... with all the things too"...
that's fine and dandy and all but...
what aRe they buying? 
 
assured again that it's all good...
that there are not a lot of homes on the market in our range...
that it's just a matter of time.

i will say...
i still firmly believe... even with all my emotional breakdowns...
that it is all in the right timing!
i wanted the girls to be able to finish the year here at their awesome school...
 and they will be able to do just that!
with campbell facing her fifth new school next year... it's a huge comfort for sure.


they have been such troopers through all of this.
i am SO proud of them!
they just continue to look on the bright side of it all!

and that is exactly what i am going to do!
 every time a negative thought... a worry... a what if... enters my head...
i'm going to kick it to the curb!
i knOw it's not worth it!
it does no good!
serves no purpose other than to make me nuts.
it's out of my hands... thank gOOdness!

as the week unfolds...
so do the promises!
