I can’t tell you how many times I have daydreamed of writing this post. Now the moment is finally here!
It has been one year and three months since we put the house on the market. One year and three months of what ifs, making new plans, breaking new plans, plotting our course then reavaluating.
We received the offer two weeks ago and within three hours of receiving it we had a deal. For the next two days I was constantly nauseous and I could not sleep. By the third day I was feeling better but had twelve more days of nervous excitement while we anxiously awaited the day when the conditions on the contract would be removed. On the day the subjects were to be removed I was beside myself with stress….would it be a day of good news or bad? The minutes slowly ticked by as I obnoxiously checked my phone. We got the call at 3:30 …we have a binding contract…the house is sold! Instead of celebrating though all I wanted to do was sleep. All of the nervous stress left my body in a puddle of exhaustion.
Now we have had a few days to reflect on our reality. We are nervous, excited, and giddy. After a year and three months of evolving plans now we have the task of deciding on one. I feel like a whole world of opportunities was just laid before us on a platter!
The new owners take possession on June 28th. Right now our plan is to move into our motorhome for the summer. We have commitments up until the end of August so we are researching flights for September and October, trying to see what is the best and cheapest way to get to Asia.
Luckily I have a love of lists and our planning has kicked into high gear. I am making a three column list: Moving out of the house, getting the motorhome ready, and getting ready for Asia. We have a lot to do and we are feeling a wee bit overwhelmed. But day by day it will all start to come together.
We are a bundle of mixed emotions…fear, stress, excitement…but mostly we are incredibly happy. Our time is here, the life we have been dreaming of is becoming a reality, and we are so ready to embrace it!
Thank you for being a part of our journey!
