Under Contract

Our house is under contract!

We have the awesomest (yes, that’s a real word) Real Estate Agent in the world!  Sheri, our agent in Missouri who handles all of our flip houses and is now selling our own houses…. did an amazing marketing job with our home.  We were under contract in less than 24 hours.

Can I just say how much I love Sheri? I adore this gal.  She’s been a friend for years and then helped us to navigate buying, flipping and selling houses and now… even though she says she doesn’t want us to leave… she knows how excited we are to begin our next adventure… she’s doing everything she can to help us move on.  That’s a true friend.

We’ve got to go through inspections and walk-throughs and all sorts of other hoops…. we could still fall out of contract… but, fingers crossed, our home will have a new owner to love it soon.

Its weird to walk around my home and know that soon it will belong to someone else.  It’s bittersweet.  I’ve loved my home and the time we’ve spent here… but I’m ready for our next adventure… and I’m excited for our buyer… they’re going to be happy here.

Now we just have to get Mom’s house sold…. and once Mom’s house is sold…. well our Florida house won’t be done for months…. so…. we gotta live somewhere….

Yeah…. we bought an RV.

Me, Mom, Brian, Boo and our six cats…. yes, SIX!… are going to live in this RV and travel the country before finally settling in Florida.

It’s crazy!  It’s absolutely insane…. but kinda cool too.  Right?!  How often do you get the chance to travel the country with your favorite Pomeranian and humans?  (and a bunch of cats.)

As has been the theme lately… we hadn’t planned to buy an RV that day.  We just wanted to start looking and get some ideas… but the perfect RV was just sitting there waiting for us.

We started our hunt at Byerly RV.  We’d rented a small RV from them back in March to take our National Park trip.  They’d been really great about getting us educated, organized and out on the road.  And when we had a problem with our generator (on Easter Sunday), Mike from the service department answered his personal cellphone and tried to talk us through the problem.  Turned out that the generator was dead, but Byerly was apologetic and great about adjusting our bill when we got home.

Dave listened to our wish list (Brian wanted a diesel pusher… less than 40 feet… used…) and said I’ve got just the thing.  Mom and I both swear we heard him say “it’s Fate,” but apparently he was saying its a Phaeton.  I think Mom and I heard him right though… it really was fate.  It had everything that Brian had said he wanted.  I’d been hoping for something that needed a bit more updating on the interior…. I’ve got a whole Pinterest board dedicated to RV renovations…. but much to my dismay… this RV was in great shape.

We just couldn’t pass this RV up.   So we bought an RV… and we’re gonna travel the country for a few months…. yeah… it just gets weirder and weirder…. more awesome!
