The heat has been terrible the past few weeks. It got up to 99 degrees yesterday and that has been pretty typical the past 10 or so days.  It's still 95 degrees at 7pm, so there is no good time to work outside.  That's a good thing though because Al and I always prefer working outside and now that it's just too hot we are working inside and making PROGRESS!  It's forcing us to stay in the house and work on some projects that need to be done before we put the house on the market.

Unfortunately, the heat is keeping us from loading up stuff and taking it to the dump, Goodwill, or the consignment shop.  It's just too darn hot to go outside.  We need to do some painting outside on the porches but the heat is making that impossible.

We read a  blog about a couple that are in the process of finding a motor home, and selling their house and becoming fulltimers when they retire next year.  They listed their house on  Zillow-Make me Move  just to test the market.  They got an offer on the house and were needing to be out of the house by mid July!  Rush Rush.....however they had no Rv to live in and couldn't find a rental in their town for 6 months.  In the end, the contract fell through and they are back to square one.  Check our their's definitely interesting. 

After reading about the success they had on Zillow, we had been thinking about listing ours there under the "Make me Move" category.  We need to get a little further along though, because if some fluke would occur and we would get someone wanting to come look at the house...we'd just.....????   Well,  I don't know what we'd do! 

Anyway, we're working towards that goal and since it's been too hot to work outside, we're actually making some progress inside!

Today is our 37th anniversary, but I don't think we'll do much celebrating.  We'll go out for a nice dinner the next time we go into Tallahassee, but just don't have the desire to do it today.  Heck, maybe I'll make Al a special dinner tonight....I'll put some extra pepperoni on the frozen pizza!

  2. Happy Anniversary!

    I tried to get Kevin to do work on certain things in our house for years, all it took was the decision to fulltime and he had all the work done on the house in less than a month. We sold ours privately through a site similiar to here in Canada. It sold in about 2 weeks.

    Hope the progress continues, just remember your goal!

  3. Ohh Happy Anniversary to you both!
