My Sunday Best! With Cee and Bea!
We wore blue in honor of Ascension Sunday. The other kids shimmied out of their church clothes as soon as they got through the door, so they missed out on the group picture.
No one was awful enough to be taken out of Mass today! Cee hasn’t been in much pain lately, and it’s been a relief to leave the wheelchair home. That opens up our seating options at church.
“How many songs left?” Moe asked several times. He’s taken to getting through Mass with a countdown of songs.
The answer is tricky because sometimes we sing certain parts, sometimes we say them. I just give my best guess, and so far that’s been good enough.
Although he had his moments (pews are not for chewing!), maybe we’ve finally left the tornado stage?!?! Hopefully I didn’t jinx it. We’ll see how next week goes…
In other news, we put a for sale sign in our front yard. It’s official! Well– sort of official. We’re doing some painting this week, so we aren’t quite show-ready. But the calls have been coming in. Fortunately for us there isn’t a lot of local competition as far as real estate goes, so the odds are good we won’t have to be in selling mode for long.
It’s been quite the emotional roller coaster. Some of us are handling it better than others. There have been lots of tears shed during the past few weeks. A few have even been from the kids. Our offer has been accepted on the first house we looked at (does that mean we’re the house equivalent of engaged?!?!). Yowza! Congratulations to us!
So many good memories. We hope to find someone who will love it as much as we have. <3
Next week we’re set to get the house painted and decks stained. After we get all the painting done, I’ll share more pictures. As far as staging, should we hang our wreath on our house (in between the door and the window) instead? Or is that weird? It gets sort of lost on the dark door. And instead of having the four big pots in front of the deck, should we move two on either side of the garage door? On the deck rail?
We think we’re going with the same neutral house color it is now. It’s actually called “Incognito.” Does it get more neutral than “Incognito?” Good call? Or should we do something drastic and trendy? We are terr-ee-blay at this. Dear internet, please help us up our curb appeal.
Happy Ascension Sunday!
