The End of a Journey

Our house-selling journey just ended (at least for now.)  We've decided to take a break from selling it and maybe try again later this year.  Some meandering thoughts on the topic:

Mental Roller Coaster:
Excited
Certain
Uncertain
Surprised
Disappointed
Excited
Impatient
Frustrated
Apathetic

We felt all of these emotions as we tried to sell our house.  And, hey, emotions happen.  I'm not sure what we could have done to turn any of them off.  But at the end of the run, God is still God and we're still blessed with a pretty awesome house now.  Next time I'd like to be aware of my emotions without riding them like a roller coaster.

Lesson Learned:
In addition to these house-selling lessons which we posted on our family blog, I have one final one:

Don't put your house for sale during the busiest season of your year.  Just don't.

And finally, in this scattered post: Josh Elliott won the Superbowl Pick contest and will get any book off of my 2013 reading list!  Way to go Josh!
