2. Become convinced your house will not sell after all
3. Daydream up a plan to revamp your current gardens (since you'll need a new project sans the moving!)
4. Blog about said plan. Double points if you include Pinterest garden photos.
5. Find hidden tips in the comments about baking bread before showings and running a slideshow of the garden in full bloom during showings
6. Fiercely enact all tips in #5 for the next unsuspecting people who come to look at your house. (If you find you can't do this fiercely, ferociously is also acceptable)
7. Accept the offer they immediately make after being positively overwhelmed by your home
8. Be incredibly thankful that you dug up and stored most of your bulbs in the fall as well as a few takealong plants.
9. Realize that you now have to start packing and have no place to go.
10. Go to get boxes that your in-laws conveniently left for you in their garage. If you can manage to somehow misidentify their house and try on two separate occasions to break into a stranger's house - before you realize that the reason the key isn't working is because it's the wrong house! - you are sillier than me.
11. Keep on praying, since nothing is for sure until closing.
We're not sure yet what house we'll end up in, but we trust that God is good and will provide. It's exciting and scary and then exciting again, so we are thankful that while our emotions are flip-flopping all over the place, we have a steadfast Father. :)
From one man He made every nation of men,
that they should inhabit the whole earth;
And He determined the time set for them,
and the exact places where they should live. (Acts 17:26)
