Reality Knocks

So we’ve been thinking recently that our house is no longer just right for our family needs.  The space worked great when we were the parents of a six year-old and a two year-old, and even a ten year-old and a six year-old.  But now we’re the parents of one teenager, and it won’t be that long until we have two teens.  We need a different layout, a way to separate our world from the kids’ world.

With this in mind, we’ve looked at a few houses and thought about putting our house on the market.  We did the paperwork last week, and made an offer on a house.  But even then the whole thing seemed like an experiment, you know?  It didn’t seem real. 

Well, today we got a counteroffer on the house we’re interested in buying.  We have 48 hours to respond.

Suddenly this feels VERY real.
