Microblog Monday: On the Market



It's official.  As of last Monday, our house is now listed on the market.  We need it to sell as soon as possible for Hubby's sanity, which also means for my own sanity.  He has an hour and a half commute to work every day.  That is 3 hours total spent in his car 5 days a week.  He hates driving, but on top of that, it's time he is missing with his babies.  The babies we worked so hard for.

Our plan is to move closer to where he works and rent for a few years.  We will be able to set aside the saved gas money and work toward a nice down payment on a new house, in addition to also cutting our debt.

Our house was put on the market last Monday, and we already had someone come look at it the very next day.  Then nothing for the rest of the week.  Nada.  Please, oh please, oh please, let this house sell quickly.

  1. Answered a question that I spoke of this morning already. I'm sending oodles of prayers that you get it sold quickly and that a door is opened that fits your family better and makes life easier to enjoy those adorable twins and each other! Lots of love and prayers (they worked last year!) Aunt D

  2. And hour and a half commute!? That sounds awful. I guess I've never lived in a big enough city that I've had to drive more than a few minutes to work. Hope the house sells quick and you find something new and close!

    1. We actually live in a small town, and it's just back road driving to work, but it's just that far away from us!

  3. I thought Toronto was a pretty shitty city for commuting, but three hours a day is just ridiculous. Hope you guys sell soon!

    1. It just happens to be that far away from us, unfortunately. We actually live in a small town community.

  6. Wow, fingers crossed that you find a setup that works better for your family, and particularly for Tony! I've been spoiled with at most 15min commutes over the last decade so I can't even imagine...

  11. Good luck with selling your house!! We just listed ours on Wednesday, but so far there hasn't been any interest. It's kind of exciting to move isn't it? The actual moving part sucks but it's fun to have a new beginning...
