In July, I shakily signed the paperwork that would bind Marilyn and I as partners for the next six months. And so began the “Ball Is In Your Park” decision; the BIIYP. Hey I did something, right? I made a decision to sell my beloved house! A decision to move on to Florida! A decision to change! That was it. The decision making was now up to the buying public. It was out of my hands. Having to make any decision and actually change anything was no longer in MY ballpark. Whew! Glad to get THAT off my chest!
A couple of days later, I was in the kitchen staring at my beautiful yard again, when I heard a loud, thump, thump, thump sound. I went to the front of the house, looked out the window and swallowed my heart. There they were. Pounding a “For Sale” sign into my front lawn. I resisted the urge to run out in my pj’s and bedhead, screaming “Get that off my lawn!!!! I didn’t mean it! I changed my mind!!!”. Instead, I just quickly moved away from the window so no one would see the blood draining from my face.
And so it begins…….
