House update

Good news and bad:
We are under contract on the Elm street house (YAY!)
We have to sell our house very soon (oooooh).
Our counter offer was accepted with a "kick out" clause. This means that if they get a better offer before we sell our house, they can accept it. So, it's a gamble. We will go ahead and pay for inspection and our house will be on the market as of tomorrow. Yikes. Better go start tidying! Nothing like living on the edge up here in eastern Maine.

Of course, I am a bit nostalgic about putting this house, where I nursed my two babes, on the market. Luckily I had the forethought to snap some photos in all of our autumnal glory for our home listing. (If you are interested, please notify Pauline Rock of ERA Dawson) :).

We are quite aware that our house very well might not sell within the time frame (did I mention this ridiculous market?), but we're going to give it a shot. If you haven't already guessed, I will most certainly keep you posted.

those trees make me want to move to maine.

i totally get the nostalgia thing. 6 weeks after henry was born in our home in prescott, we moved. and 8 weeks after oliver was born in our home about two miles away, we moved. i still drive by our "old, OLD house" (as henry calls it) just to remember the glorious labor and delivery there.....
hope you sell. new houses are fun!

Good luck with everything! There are so many memories that we build in our homes, but you will create new memories in the new house.
