We (well, more I than we) are preparing the house to sell. We have decided to try and do for sale by owner for a while. We are hoping it sells quickly and Armydad can get us settled into an apartment long before he leaves. It is going to be very hard on the Things when he leaves. So, we want to minimize and spread out the trauma as much as we can. We will sell the house, settle into an apartment, and then he will leave (hopefully.) Plus this way, Armydad does not have to worry about me trying to sell the house alone while he is gone. So, I am painting, cleaning, organizing, and still trying to raise these wild and crazy kids. I am exhausted… Can’t wait to be finished with this phase and so glad the Army will take care of the moving stuff from here on out!
