Call me the Haggler

Yesterday, I successfully negotiated the sale of my house.

The buyers made a low offer. I countered. They countered. I countered again. We went back and forth several times.

I actually haggled, y’all. And I don’t haggle on anything. I felt like such a bad-ass.

And you know what?


I was euphoric about this for several hours, because man, I am so excited about starting over in a new (smaller) space, just me and my girls, and building our own little life, just the three of us.

Then the euphoria wore off when I realized: holy crap I have no place to live. And I have to plan a move in less than a month.

So, yeah. Now I’m panicking.

But hey, as long as I’ve got these two with me?

Sunday sister snuggles.

We can go live in a van down by the river for all I care. We’re gonna be just fine.

  1. Congrats on the negotiations. Having your own place, the 3 of you, is going to be fantastic. Though I do hate moving.

  2. I’m SO happy for you and your truly beautiful girls. You made a huge step forward and I know the rest can be figured out somehow. I hope the perfect LITTLE house is just waiting for you. Congratulations!!!!

  3. Awesome news! My house is on the market too, so I know how excited I would be to get an offer. I can only hope I’ll be a good haggler too 🙂

  4. I’m so so so happy for you. For the sale and for your parents move. For all of it.

    I hope this is the beginning of wonderful things for you.

    Seriously. Our neighborhood rocks. You wouldn’t be the only single mom. There are a jazillion kids around Catie and Lucy’s age. The schools are good. Less than a mile from North Hills and the beltline.

    If you are at all interested – search Lakemont/Northgate/Quail Hollow. 27609 zip code. And let me know if I can help you in any way.

  5. I’m happy for you. Yay!!

    And you guys are going to be just fine. You’ll find somewhere perfect to move into and you and the girls will start down that path to healing together.

  6. I looked at that photo, and to me that little one is saying, “You da man, mommy!”

    Silly, but true.
