I teased last week about some exciting news in mine and Chris's life, and it does not regard my womb.
Although I wasn't sure about sharing this news yet, for random reasons, I am deciding to spill the beans because it is all I can think about lately.
We are selling our house! And it is the most stressful/exciting/nerve-wracking process I have ever been apart of. Between the showings causing us to not get into our house until eight or nine at night, the sleepless nights, and the stress of finding a new house, we continue to be grateful for all that we have been provided with.
Now you may say..."You haven't lived there that long?" We know! When I worked in accounting, my commute was around 30 minutes and Chris's commute has always been around 45 minutes. Now that I am a teacher (happily!), my school is much further away. My morning commute is around 40 minutes and my afternoon commute is always at least an hour. If you know Dallas traffic, you know my pain.
Chris has also been blessed with a job that has allowed him to grow within the company, and continue to grow, making him more important, shall I say? With more responsibility, he has to be closer. He is an assistant plant manager for the second largest copper wire manufacturer in the nation and if anything goes wrong at the plant (which runs 24/7), he has to be there at a moments notice.
With all of that being said, we are sad to sell our home, but excited to plant some long-term roots in another northern suburb of Dallas.
As far as the house selling process has gone, that has been slightly pretty freaking stressful. We got an offer over asking price after only being on the market for two days. After signing on the dotted line, we learned while we were skiing last weekend that the deal feel through. Sunday we went back on the market and by Monday night we had two more offers. We are now in negotiations and being patient and knowing that it will all workout. Butttt it is still stressful.
We are not in any rush to move, so there is less pressure, but the housing market is nuts. Seriously, nuts. Houses are flying off the market and everyone is getting their asking price, or over. That makes for a great sellers market, but a tough buyers market. We have made offers on two houses and both times a deal had been executed before we could even submit an offer. One house sold in less than 24 hours!
So, prayers are greatly appreciated during this time! We know we will sell our house and find our dream home and that everything will work out fine! Thanks for understanding the random days of absence...the first weekend we were on the market we were basically out of the house for two days straight because of all the showings. Now we have showings almost every night, so it has been eating out all the time and a lot of touring our neighborhood waiting for showings to be over!
Can't wait to keep y'all updated on the process and have y'all along for this next chapter in the Tucker life!
