May was chaotic, stressful, and wonderful.
We celebrated Charlotte's first birthday, Mother's Day, and Brandon's birthday. We went under contract for our future home and put our current home on the market. Due diligence, packing, cleaning, staging, and everything else that is necessary to make the transition from one house to another has been taking up all of our free time. Keeping the house clean and de-cluttered and leaving at a moments notice for a showings has definitely been a challenge.
It's all worth it at the end of the day.
A bigger home, a better neighborhood, lower taxes, and great schools.
A pricey investment, a high risk for unexpected expenses, and a lot of balls to juggle at the same time.
The higher the risk, the higher reward, the higher the stress when you know it will be a bumpy road getting there.
May was only the beginning and a precursor for what this summer will bring.
I'm excited and scared.
