The house is now on the market. We (or should I say my hubby) signed the papers this morning.

Of course this being Sunday, I just wanted to hang out and read and relax in my jammies until we had to leave for a birthday party. So, I am in the shower, taking my time, enjoying the hot water, when my hubby pops his head in saying the realitor will be here shortly!

Well, my shower ended right there. I dressed really fast and started barking orders at Matt to clean up the living room. He had a friend try to sleep over the night before (his friend got homesick and wanted to go home. No big deal, he only lives right next door) and there were toys and blankets all over. My kitchen was a mess. I made pancakes for breakfast and I didn't feel like cleaning up right away. You couldn't tell there was a table in the kitchen is was so covered in books and papers.

The realitor showed up like 5 minutes after. I was freaking out! I am by no means a neat freak, but the fact that my house looked like a monster ran through it did not help. Thankfully, our realitor, who has 3 kids under 8, knows how I feel. Her inlaws decided to show up and she was freaking out herself.

It took like 5 minutes for my hubby to sign the papers and she told me she had someone lined up to see the house TOMORROW NIGHT!!!! I guess they like the neighborhood or whatever. I love it here honestly. But all I could see was my house being so cluttered with boxes and papers and stuff that I still need to fix around the house, that I just went into a melt down. I am still freaking out, just not as much.

So, now I have to make sure the house is spic-and-span by 7pm tomorrow. Ya right. That never happened the 9 years I have lived here. My house has always been cluttered, but in a neat way. We are still storing crap from my inlaws and they passed away 7 and 4 years ago!

So wish me luck as I run around like a chicken with it's head cut off tonight and tomorrow. Housework is not my favorite thing to do. Good thing is we rented a storage unit, so I can throw all the boxes in it tomorrow, but there is still so much that needs to be done.

As much as it would totally rock my socks to have the house sell asap, I don't want it to. I need time to go through my crap before I pack.
