I Am Thankful For %&$*#@!

Oy vey.

I love the holidays, but deciding to sell my house during them?

Oy. To the. Freaking. Vey.

“Oh, but I lost my job, I’ll have so much time to do everything myself!” -Me, 5 weeks ago, being a dumbass.

“Surely I can just sand that chipped paint on the bathroom ceiling!”

Oh… that’s not paint… it’s like, like… giant chunks of plaster…

…and now it’s everywhere.

“Oh, I’ll just buy a new french door lock from Home Depot!”

“I AM NEVER F&#$%^^* coming off, so just go eat some more turkey and leave me alone.” -Door Lock

“It’s sooo cheap to get a truckload of mulch! Amazing!”

5 -literally- full days of mulching and this eye sore still remains at the foot of the driveway.

“What a great opportunity to declutter!”

house-fail-piles
NO.

“Free boxes from someone on Craigslist! Yay!”

house-fail-boxes
Do you think I can get rid of these 57 extra boxes on Craigslist before the first open house?

“I’ll just spackle over those holes downstairs!”

Spackle dust doesn’t actually stay in your lungs, does it?

“That swing set out back is so old, it’ll just come apart with a good shove!”

3 weeks later.

And the latest and greatest, the pièce de résistance, my attempt to clean a carpet yesterday:

I can’t even talk about this one.

What also happened yesterday? Babs (mom) sent a picture of my niece’s latest art project. She had to list her favorite relative:

Booya.
Booya. Right up there with chickin.

I guess I do have a lot to be thankful for.

Got any house selling tips? This is a first for me. …Clearly.
