dating my house

I have a confession to make...some of you already know...I think I've talked about it before even, but I need to be honest.  For the past 8 months I've been going on blind dates.  I've been on more than 60 during this time.  That averages out to more than 1 a week.  Some have been promising.  I've even been on second dates with about 15 or so of them...one guy we had 4 dates!!!!  but it just never works out.  It's a little frustrating you know...wondering if I'm ever going to find "the one."


I'm so clever, right?  Our house has been on the market for 8 months now.  It is funny to me how personally I take it when someone doesn't like my house.  It really is like dating...except I never meet these people.  We've had more than 60 showings.  It's kind of creepy to think about all those people going through our house.  The probability alone of that many showings would lead you to think we'd at least have had an offer on the house let alone someone to buy it...but no, we haven't.  Poor little house, just keeps getting rejected over and over again.  Do you want to buy it?!?!

We are going to take it off the market for a bit....just for our sanity.  While having your house on the market the first year you are married teaches you wonderful habits like always cleaning up after dinner and doing the dishes, hanging up all your clothes after you fold them, making your bed everyday, etc.  It also takes it's toll.  I haven't really decorated or added personal touches to the house since May.  No wedding pictures are hung, no moving the furniture around or adding fun nick nacks to the mantle.  Most my craft stuff was moved out of the house to clear out some clutter so I'm not doing as many fun projects. 

We just kind of need a break.  So that's what we are doing...UNLESS you want to buy our house!  We'll list it just for you :)  I'm looking forward to February (which is crazy that next week is february of 2012) and freshening up my house and actually living in our home.  Hopefully new fun projects will be coming soon! Stay tuned.
