Haiku Friday


Thanks everyone!
Your wise words and advice helped
I am less stressed now.

Feeling much better
Very calm and reassured
Home's where the heart is

So, we decided
Put in a low-ball offer
We'll see where it goes

I am so excited for you. Wow! I hope it all works out the way you would want it to. I'm also very jealous. I would love to have 5 bedrooms.

Glad to hear you're feeling more at ease.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Chrissy said...

Friday's always brings me less stress... oh and good luck with the house.

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

Excellent idea!

Good luck Kathryn!

Tracey said...

Good luck!

maggie's mind said...

Oh, yay! Sounds like a good plan. Kind of putting it out there but not forcing anything and seeing how it goes is often the right choice.

ann said...

Nice approach, and what will be will be. I WILL say that as your boys get physically bigger - like taller and heavier with long legs and arms - more than 1500 sf will be a desirable thing. And there are still many firsts to come.

Rachel said...

Prayers for you darling!!
Good luck!!

Cyndi said...

I know everything will work out if it was meant to be.

Debbie in CA : ) said...

A peaceful mind, a prayerful heart, and perhaps some packing hands. We shall see ...

Praying right alongside you. : )

Lisa said...

Hooray for you! I bet it will work out wonderfully!!! And even if you don't get the house, you did the hardest part - you jumped in with both feet!

Krystyn said...

If it was meant to be..it was meant to be, right?

abritdifferent said...

It's totally a buyer's market. Good luck with everything!

Fire Hunt said...

That is very exciting. That is how we did it and we got it.

Anglophile Football Fanatic said...

I'm glad to see you okay with the outcome. It's out of your hands now, right?

lime said...

wonderful, that sounds like a peaceful and reasonable solution. so glad you are feeling calmer.

Kelley said...

Good luck!

Robyn said...

I hope you get it, at least if that is what you want:)

Molly's Mom said...

Good luck!! If it's meant to be, they'll accept the offer, right?

Jill said...

I do believe in karma... and if it's meant to be, it will be!

Good luck - may whatever happen, happen only for the best. :)

Kristen said...

Hope they take it!!

Can't wait to keep reading!!

You're a Haiku queen!

As it is said, "If it's meant to be, it's meant to be..."

beth said...

Great idea. It is in God's hands now.

Sorry that I have been out of touch while living in the woods. You will certainly need more space over time--especially after the child #4 arrives. Thanks for the great thoughts about the sentimental memories associated with your house. It made me sit and think about those times in our family history. Soon a new house will seem like home.

Mona said...

One does feel emotional about leaving one's house!

Change is always a bit disconcerting at first, but soon nicer things & feelings take over!

Wish you all the best for a great future in a bigger & better house!

Ps> love the photos of the babies!

Wendy said...

Good luck! I think if it's in God's plan, it'll happen. It is hard moving, but a house is just a building; and you'll be close enough to still get together with old friends. (Even the lake...) Have a great weekend!

Tiffany said...

Woo Hoo! Go for it!

Tam said...

Just remember to breath and take it easy and if it happens..then GREAT and if it does not .....do not worry about!!!

Candy said...

hhaaaahh!!!

best wishes to you!!!

DYSFUNCTIONAL MOM said...

Good luck to you! We are trying to decide whether we should stay or go right now as well. It's not easy!

Sandy C. said...

I just caught up with everything. I'm so sorry I missed the last post. I SO remember the stresses of home buying and moving. Very wise step in throwing in a low ball offer in this market.
Keeping my fingers crossed that the best outcome for you and your family unfolds :)

Rebecca Ramsey said...

That was great thinking. You've made an offer, and now it's out of your hands.

God never closes a door without opening another window...

Amy said...

Good luck girl! I know that moving is so hard but it always seems to be worth it in the end. You had me at 2nd laundry room ;-)

Mom24 said...

I left you some bloggy bling at my place. I *heart* your blog.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
