Everything you didn't want to know about us selling and buying houses

The best time to do crazy things is when everything is already crazy. That's how I like to roll, at least.  So there's a newborn and a new school year and a house we're trying to buy and this house we're getting ready to sell and it's all happening at a breakneck pace and that's cool, man.  That's cool.  Because once it's OVER, we can immerse ourselves in Thanksgiving and Advent and Christmas without all of this hanging over our heads.

Me and that baby and what we wore (wiws)

You know what I'm most excited about in the (potential) new house?  It has a full length mirror.  Already installed.  Somehow that particular task, the installation of a full length mirror somewhere in this house, has eluded me for over four years now, so clearly it's never going to happen.  So forever and ever, if we don't get the new house, whenever I decide to share what I wore or a belly or other mirror-requiring photo, you will have to endure terrible selfies like the following:

Ceci speaks, semi-girliness, happy videos (7qt)

Let's shoot out of the gate with four totally true quips from this firecracker of a child because letting my kids write a post for me is just my kind of lazy:

Cecilia, while modeling for Tommy her "hula hula" outfit (bathing suit shown above with a red skirt on the bottom): ...AND I wore it to co-op today!

Wait. Why are selling your house???

Blogging is weird because you can write entire posts about itty bitty teeny weeny things, things like how much I despise that show Sid the Science Kid for example.  But then when ginormous things happen, you're like "oh and by the way a herd of elephants trampled our car and it was weird.  Moving on to this MASCARA I FOUND WOW IT'S SO GREAT AND IMPORTANT."

Know what I'm sayin'?

Case in point: we are thisclose to putting our house (The House) on the market, and I sort of just brought it up in passing like it's no big deal.  And then people were like "um, can you back this train up and pick up a few passengers that you left behind, passengers like Mrs. What the Heck and  Mr. Why?"

3 Months; First Day; New House; Awesome Baby (7qt)

There's probably a really good German word for what my life is like right now.  I wouldn't call it stressful because I feel a river of peace running smoothly underneath this mountain.  But the mountain- the mountain is what I'm talkin' about.  The school year starting, prepping our own house to go on the market, trying to buy this other house, trying not to be surprised every four hours when people want to eat...again. 



How about some pictures?

What did you do to that bathtub?!? Did it involve the bartering of first-born children?

Labor Day Bathroom Reno - SHAZAM!

Remember on Friday when I said we were thinking about selling The House Unseen?

Well.  Deep breath.  Here's what happened since then.

-Our offer on a place two miles away got accepted (as I said to my friend Amanda "I don't want a new life, I just want a new house!)

-We realized we have to get this place, our current house, appraised.
