I Aim To Please
You have demanded it and here it is. The picture of the house.

The front is really nothing all that exciting, but the back is beautiful. The brick work is elaborate and extensive.

I wish I had a better picture of the trees at the back of the property but I don't. You can kind of see them from this bottom shot.

My favorite part of this house (besides the 1.5 acre lot and all the beautiful trees) is the floor to ceiling fireplace in the family room. The room has huge vaulted ceilings with beautiful beams crisscrossing the top of the ceiling.

The house is 5,000 square feet with four bedrooms, a bonus room, den with another brick fireplace, and FIVE bathrooms. What does one do with five bathrooms.

The thought of cleaning all that house isn't very exciting to me. However, the land, it is a calling to me.


God and I have been talking a lot today. We (meaning hubby and I) have decided to give ourselves until the end of the week to make a decision. Part of me doesn't want to wait. What if someone else snatches it up? Well then, Julie, I guess it wasn't meant to be. God must have another plan for your family.

This is pretty much the conversation that has gone on in my head ALL DAY LONG.

In an attempt to not drive myself utterly insane I started making a list of all the things we would need to do if we were to put our house on the market in the next few weeks. I made an appointment for the repairman to come out and deal with some things going on with our pool pump, hired a window washer, have a screen guy coming out to re screen a couple of windows, hired a handyman to do a few minor repairs that hubby just hasn't had time to get to.

Overall it was a pretty productive day.

I figure even if we end up staying in our beautiful home, which I really do love, at least it will be in tip top shape for us to enjoy.

I'm off to bed now to dream of rolling hills and avocado trees. Just think of all the guacamole I could make????

FIVE bathrooms!!! Wow!

I am in suspense as well as to what you might decide. I'm sure that it will work out for your family either way.

wow! That looks amazing! I wouldn't know what to do with 5 bathrooms, I can barely get two clean every day. With 5 kids that are able to help clean them.

That house is amazing! Great square footage and the land! But it sounde like your current home is wonderful, too. I hope you get clear answers soon!

BTW, I think the front of that house would be much nicer if they removed the 2 trees. But for now, maybe this will put off the competition!

Seems you and I are in the same boat :) I'm going to do a post on this very same conversation that I've been having in MY head!
I keep telling myself that if God wants us in a certain place, then He'll have us there. Satan sure can do a number on us by telling us that if we don't hurry up, we'll miss out on the DEAL of the century, which just isn't true!

Oh, Julie, I am so excited for you. It is beautiful. I'll be praying for you - God has just the right place for you. However, I would have to think that any place that has the potential for unlimited guacamole MUST be in God's plan (I'll be right over with the chips!).

I wouldn't sweat the size. Hey, you have all those kids. They can clean for you, right? =)

(BTW-We have "locked down" our shower usage to two of our 3 bathrooms to keep cleaning manageable around here until we move...)
