Happy new year!

Hello, to anyone still checking.  I hope you had a great Christmas and new year celebration!  We did!

We are running a little behind our schedule on readying the house for sale.  It’ll probably be still another 2 weeks or so before we are ready to call a realtor in and get the ball going.  AND, we are aware that the market is slowing down….well, the ECONOMY is starting to tank.  We have already agreed that we are only willing to go so low on a sale price, at which if we can’t get that, we will just not sell and stay put until/if the economy picks up.  It just wouldn’t make financial sense to sell if we are looking at a sale price as low as $50-75K less than we think we could get.

AND, most importantly, I have made peace with that.  I’ve made peace that we might not move during ‘cooler’ months…it might be a summer move (ugh, but that’s what professionals are for) might be a fall move.  There might be no move at all.  And despite being a very OCD Virgo, I’m okay with that.  I have turned over my control freak tendencies to fate.  What’s meant to be, WILL be, WHEN it’s meant to be.

So, that’s where I am.  One of my few new year resolutions was to put more emphasis on time dedicated to blogging.  The 4-5 times a week just became too much, even in early retirement.  Maybe I’ll be there again once the housing situation gets settled, but for now I’ll shoot for once or twice a week posting, and visiting your blogs 3 or 4 times a week, and see if that’s doable.  Fingers crossed, but I do have good intentions.  🙂

Love you guys!
