Neglectful

I realize I have been neglecting this blog the past few days...Friday pictures will be up at some point this weekend. That quick trip did enough damage to my sleep and then Audrey decided to get up every 2 hours last night. I have so much more I want to say about the trip and the wonderful people I met. I just need time to sit down and get my thoughts out.

Stress is something I think Ray and I handle well; there may be some days where we handle it better than others, but in all, we get through. I have been commiserating with Molly and seeing what she has been going through with having two houses (and a third baby on the way...). It's what we are living right now. In April, our renter of two years moved out of our house in Virginia. I guess I haven't really discussed it much because I keep thinking that someone will come through and do something with the house, either rent or buy.

I also haven't discussed it much because I don't want to get the "we did it to ourselves" thing. Yes, we chose to relocate to Raleigh at the exact time the market started crashing. We weren't forced into moving. Would we be miserable right now if we hadn't moved? Absolutely. We don't regret moving at all. If the price to pay for happiness is two mortgages, we will take it.

Thankfully, Ray's Dad has reactivated his license in Virginia and has been showing our house. And we have gotten some showings; even some more than once. We are keeping our fingers crossed. Which is all we can do at this point.

I'd be stressed beyond words if I had two mortgages to pay!! I'll be sending happy "please buy Amy's house" vibes :)

I know good thought don't pay the mortgage but it will sell! Have you buried at St. Joseph's statue in the yard yet? I swear, that helped us sell our house a couple of years ago.

Remember this blog is your blog, we are just happy to read your updates when you have TIME. What's this nonsense about being neglectful!

I hope your house sells quickly....

About a year and half ago we had the two mortgages as well. It was stressful but it all worked out in the end. Like you we were happy we made the move as well.
