Someone once said, "a house is just a house until you make it a home."

That same person also said, "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush." Come to think of it, I think it's the same person who heeded us the warning, "don't count your chickens before they hatch." Hey wait a second. He/she also said, "don't pee into the wind." Wow, now that I think about it, he/she is a seam-bursting pant load of witty/advising antidotes. Perhaps I should see if this gender neutral person would like to buy my house.

Oh yes, my house.

It is with a heavy heart that make this blog entry. A few months ago, the Mrs. and I came to the dreaded realization that our much cherished home wasn't cutting the mustard for the needs of our ever-growing family. Simply put, the house was a wee bit too small. Plus (as you saw in my previous post) we could use some more secret storage space. We now find ourselves perched atop the cliff of real estate opportunity, overlooking a vista of excitement, anxiety, and the unknown. Oh man, that was a good line. Did you guys feel it? I felt it. Tingled a little.

After making the decision to move, we began to crunch some numbers. The calculator told us that it was absolutely imperative that we sell our home sans a realtor in order to afford the size/price we would be looking for in our new home.

Okay, so here we are. That can't be that difficult, right? All I really need to do is integrate verbiage such as adorable, charming, quaint, lovely, cuddly, odorless, delightful, darling, winsome, and twee into my daily speak. In addition, I just need to learn the skillful art of turning negatives into positives. No, that's not a papaya-sized goiter on that man's forehead that begs the bile from the deepest corners of your stomach to flow heavenward. It's a beauty mark.

Looks like I'm ready to sell. Without any further adieu, I present to you...

The crib.



I've also produced a little website to aid in the cause. If you, or anyone you know, could benefit from living in this heavenly slice of heaven's heaven, let a brother like unto myself know.

Janice? I felt it!


It's worth putting on forsalebyowner.com or some other fsbo site. My neighbor used one and sold their condo within a week. The cost is pretty low. Very cute place.
