More thoughts on the process

I thought it would be fun to show you some of the stuff I found while going through the paperwork to get ready to sell the house.  For example, here are the photos I took when we were looking at buying our current house:

And here's what it was like right before we moved last time, in case you're looking for a laugh:

And this is what happens when you trap me in a hotel room for two months with two cats and a not-quite-two-year-old Hellion: 

This is the first house sale we've done where I have to wrangle the kid, and the fact that school ends in four days absolutely terrifies me. The benefit of the two weeks of intensive work I put into getting the house ready is that now I just have to keep it up, which shouldn't take a ridiculous amount of attention each day. Hopefully I can be "present" for Liza, which should minimize the amount of damage she can do to my perfect house before I notice it and beat her for it.

ETA: House went on the market Friday, and we had an offer on Tuesday, which we countered and they accepted on Wednesday morning.  Four days on the market - not bad, if I do say so myself!
