Day 136 - Uplifting Moments

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Reading the comments from my post yesterday and all the love and support that was pouring out turned a dark day into one that was barely dim. I cannot thank you all enough.

Today was better, although there are still some challenges ahead as we near the end of the home sale in Sacramento. We are so close, but we keep finding out about additional delays, thanks to our wonderful California lawmakers. There are so many protections for home buyers that the sellers are left hanging until just a few days before closing. There's little balance in the equation, but I just hope that at this point, we are beyond the point of backing out. We are supposed to close in 10 days. Fingers crossed. Prayers are appreciated.

I got to leave the office early, as the Board of Directors was having a meeting at 3pm and needed the place to themselves. I think I'll like the 2nd Tuesday of the month - I can count on a short day. I came home and we moved a bunch of furniture around. We've decided to turn the middle bedroom upstairs into the office, and that means we are selling the last queen bed.

We will be looking for a sectional sofa for the living room that has a queen sleeper built in, so that we have a little more sleeping space for future houseguests. Suggestions are welcome!

I am in awe of the wonderful support that I continue to receive from you all in your comments, both on my blog posts and on my SparkPage.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Love the new picture!

    Having a home office is a great idea, I'd be lost without mine! Happy shopping for the perfect sectional sofa, can't wait for pictures.

    Just stay positive about the sale of the house and you can count on emoticon from me.

    You were already in my prayers, Steve. After reading some of your blogs about the challenges to selling your home, it seemed like a good idea :-) Hope the rest of your week is better than it started. Good luck! Fingers crossed here too!

    You are going through one of the most stressful things in life right now, moving and sell a home is taxing both physically and emotionally. But soon it will be over and you can concentrate on enjoying your new home. I will add you to my prayer list that things go well and smooth with no more hiccups! But if anything else comes up, don't let it get to you. Shrug it off and move on. Have a great Wednesday, glad it is a short one for you! Stop sweating the little things, Steve, and enjoy life!

    Prayers already said and will continue for those ten days...and you can finally relax and move on, my friend! You sure havevgone through those top stresses in life...selling home, buying home, moving, new job (after years worth of recovery from an accident!)!!! Good Grief! You deserve to be able to sit back and enjoy your new home and family! That's what I wish for you!
    I think the office instead of spare bedroom is a great idea...much more use out of that! And the sectional with a sleeper in it will sure work! Check out Lazy Boy sectionals on line...look at one called Collins with sleeper...lots of colors...I liked taupe and pine!
    Looks comfy!
    Have a great Wednesday, Steve!
    Lots of love,
