Hey Fat Lady…It’s time to SING!

11 Mar

Well folks, it’s over! Nine months of wishing and hoping ends with the best outcome we could have asked for, a sold house. I can’t help but notice, I could have had a baby in the time it took us to sell our house.

Of course the stars weren’t going to align for us to have an easy time of it all were they? For those who haven’t heard, our area of Pennsylvania had near monsoon type weather yesterday and of course there had to be flooding all around us. My poor mother in law had to take a backwards way to get here compliments of the Brandywine River spilling over it’s banks. Our trip to settlement was filled with extra traffic, closed roads and frayed nerves.

There was a bit of a miscommunication between Bill and I. I thought he had put gas in my car and he didn’t. I start the car to see the needle sitting on top of the “E” line. Crap! Half way to settlement the fuel light comes on. Double crap! Not to worry, I made it there, and not only on time, but I was early.

The whole ride there I really thought I was going to throw up at any minute. Sometimes my mouth has a way of running away from me when I don’t like someone or something and I was not happy about selling for what we did. I knew I had to keep myself in check and I was afraid I wasn’t going to be able to. Not to worry though, I did.

I knew the guy as soon as I saw him. I’m not dummy, I did my homework. I Googled him just like I’m sure they Googled us. Sometimes I wish I hadn’t, that only made me like him less since I knew he could afford to pay more than he did.

But I digress.

Everything went off without a hitch, and we are free from that house. I looked out the window in the midst of signing the may documents and saw that even the sun had decided to make an appearance for us. My feelings from yesterday haven’t changed too much, I’m still a little sad about what I left behind. I don’t just mean my curtain rods and Cameron’s bookshelves. I don’t know why, but I really do feel like I left a piece of myself behind there. The only thing that has changed from yesterday is that I now know that piece will grown back. It will grow back stronger, and better than ever.

As I look around this house I see it’s endless potential. I see everything I could ask for and some things I didn’t even know to ask for. I look out the window and see the beautiful Chester County countryside and smile.

“It’s a new dawn, It’s a new day, It’s a new life for me and I’m feeling good.”

From the one and (now) ONLY Mommyland, have a WONDERFUL day!
