Preparing for a move - Evolved Mommy
Here I am 6 months preggars and we’re about to list our house. The idea is to be out of rural Arkansas and into semi-sort of-almost urban Arkansas. This mama is a fish out of water in the country. I need to see people walking around and interacting with one another.
Last week, I actually heard the following at our local grocery store: “Them ain’t the ones they got over at Chicken Holler.”
The gentleman was referring to the pansies on display in front of the grocery store. Chicken Holler is the local “nursery” one town over.
GET ME OUT OF HERE!!!
So, is it crazy to try to move while pregnant? Let me back up, is it crazy to deal with a house on the market when pregnant? My energy level is around a 2.3 on a good day and we all know that when your house is on the market it has to look great every day on the chance that a realtor wants to bring that perfect buyer around.
In the event that it does actually sell in this crappy, yet improving, market how in the world will I muster the energy to pack, unpack and arrange a new house? But then again, will I have the energy and time to do it after the baby gets here?
Which is the more desirable situation? In my mind either situation is better than being stranded out here with a new baby. At least “in town” I can go to “Mommy & Me” time at the library or walk around the park with the stroller.
So here we go. Listing this house. Wish us luck. Pray for us. Burn incense. We can use it all.
Maybe, just maybe we’ll be in a new home by the time our baby girl arrives.
