Everything is moving right along with closing on the new house, which is scheduled for one week from tomorrow. The sellers actually just bought the house last year, so our realtor was able to find last year's listing, which just so happened to include a virtual tour, so you should definitely go check it out.
I know- the music was really moving, right? Also, if you took the time to watch the tour, then you are now welcome to submit any suggestions you might have for that front room (labeled the "living room"). Our current stage of life doesn't really lend itself to having a formal living room, so we'd like to make that space functional (read: play area for the twins) without it looking like, well, a play area for the twins. Thoughts? Pinterest inspirations? Please share.
As far as our current house goes, it went on the market last Thursday. If you are not a creepy stalker, feel free to check out the listing here (and pass it along to your friends interested in living in the thriving metropolis of Richmond!). We've had 3 showings so far, but no offers yet.
I spent the better portion of the weekend obsessing about the possibility of it NEVER selling and us having to pay two mortgages FOREVER, eventually causing us to live in a van down by the river. It's funny, because the way I'm doubting and worrying and allowing this to consume my thoughts makes it seem like I've never faced an unknown situation from which God delivered me in the past… but I have two 22-pound humans living in the house that would suggest otherwise ;)
Anyway, I was right about the fact that living in a constant "show-ready" state with messy little toddlers is difficult, but it really hasn't been as bad as I thought. The real problem, however, is that I've convinced myself that packing up boxes would make too much of a mess and be too hard to put away for showings, so we have essentially done no packing so far. And we move in 11 days. Oops. The good news is that we still have the second half of season 2 of Nashville to assist with our procrastination efforts.
So that's what we have going on. And now I have a completely unrelated picture comparison to share with you all. Brian actually posted this on Instagram the other day, but since I doubt most of you follow him (@bwjoiner, in case you're interested), I'm resharing:
That would be Colby on the right and an ultrasound pic of one of the twins, which we are clearly assuming is Colby at 11 weeks into the pregnancy on the left. What do you think?
