Coffee Chat & Selling Our House!
Grab a cuppa jo and join me for a weekend chat including the adventures of selling our house in this crazy market!
As I type this our house has been on the market for 2 days and last I counted we are up to 41 house showings scheduled.
Needless to say, I am glad we made the decision to move in with my parents for the time being.
So far so good with the rare exception of a poor couple whose kid got sick on our brick foyer floor.
That was a first, but nothing that a hearty scrub brush and bleach couldn’t fix. I felt so sorry for the parents. Buying a house in this chaos is stressful enough without your kid puking on the homeowners’ floors. Ha.
Our kiddos can’t get over the fact we are having sleepovers at Gram and BawPaw’s even on school nights!
Their before-school mornings don’t usually include storytime with Bawpaw.
Or a speed round of Oceanopoly with Gram.
Mom called me to the kitchen one afternoon to look outside, and we saw Caleb’s ingenuity on display.
In order to appreciate this, you have to read about our Easter fun and what the kids got in their baskets this year.
Caleb wedged the hammock in between a car seat and a patio chair to keep it vertical and created a DIY backyard tennis court.
Mom and I both felt rather proud of our offspring at this moment.
We are still in the throes of house selling, but in case you missed the fun this week on the imPERFECTly emPOWERed POdcast I chatted with Jenny Swisher about her incredibly unique perspective on adopting transracially AND being an adopted daughter herself!
Do not miss this episode and hear Jenny speak authentically about her struggle with infertility and the beautiful blessings and real-life challenges of transracial adoption.
Have you ever wondered how much water you really need to drink each day? Like really? We all hear we should drink more water, but what does that mean? Listen here to learn the formula you need to use to determine how much water you should be drinking each day, why it is essential, and 11 practical tips to hit your daily water goal!
In case you missed my Easter post this week, I shared how I have been involved in music on Easter Sunday in some form for the last 15 years or so.
But this Easter Sunday was especially powerful in light of the heartbreak recently experienced by several members of our congregation. You can read more about it HERE.
In the video below our Sunday service starts at the last song, and you will have to forgive the fact that 83% of us on the stage are crying as much as we are singing and playing (maybe it was just me). But if you have the time I encourage you to watch the whole service. Your story matters and there is HOPE no matter how dark and heavy your circumstances. I promise.
Whew. I just watched it again, and it still gets me.
