Echoing Jennifer’s previous post, I’m sorry about the lack of posting, also. I’ve been busy at work and home, so it’s been difficult to find the time. As I mentioned in a previous post, we are hoping to sell our house this spring. We had a realtor come out last week to give us his thoughts, and he seems to think that it will take 4-6 months to sell. The market isn’t that hot for sellers, as I’m sure you know. But the kicker is that he wants to put it on the market by March 1st! That’s only 17 days away! So now I’m in home repair/cleaning/staging freakout mode to try to get it ready. We still have so much to do, including tiling our master bath, which is no small task. The home staging part is what’s fun to me, though. What a good job that would be. This website has been helpful to me, as it’s a message board for home stagers and has before and after pics. Do you have any helpful hints as far as selling a house? This is the first time we’ve this, so anything you’d like to share would be truly appreciated!
I learned to knit a couple of years ago and have knitted countless scarves and a few other things. You can subscribe to the Lion Brand yarn newsletter and catalog to get ideas each month. When I page through the catalog and dogear pages for the most beautiful afghans and sweaters, they’re all crocheted! So I think I’m going to have to add crocheting to my list of talents, because knitting isn’t really cutting it for me anymore. My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was young, so hopefully it’ll be like riding a bike.
Something has been weighing heavily on me. My parents never seem to call and hardly ever come up to visit. They live about 85 miles away, and I go down there at least once a month. I’m usually the one to call them once a week or so, but they never call. So I’m going to stop calling and making any contact and see how long they go. I know people lead busy lives, but it just bothers me.
I’m going to start ending my posts with a quote each time. This is one of my favorite bible verses: Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. -1 John 4:11-12
