Confessions of a tired tea drinker

My husband and I have been thinking about buying a new house for a while, so we’ve been looking for about five months. Over the last two weeks it’s gotten serious. We’ve been touring houses, putting in offers, getting rejected, and waiting to hear back on our third offer. In the mean time, I’ve cleaned my house for photos to sell our house and started packing some breakables.

We’ve worked on punch list problems to fix before listing and last night we decided today will be the day to list our house. I’ve lost a lot of sleep the past week and am tired.

As I pause writing to run after my 9 month old who has oatmeal all over his face and has learned to turn on our floor fan, I come back with a cup of caffeinated tea.

Charleston Tea Plantation Peach tea is good, but I’m too tired to even care what it tastes like, as long as it wakes me up.

Then this thought crossed my mind, “I should leave some tea out for potential buyers to try!” That’s definitely something I would do, but am not going to. I seem to have tapped into my “sweet old lady at heart” characteristics.

Anywho, y’all keep us in your thoughts, prayers, and positive energy vibes. We’re about to go on a wild ride!

    1. It’s 6! Staying nearby! My hubby wasn’t ok with moving to England for some reason…


  2. Sister in Law take heart you will find the perfect house i’m praying for that. I thinking setting tea out for potential buyers is a great idea. The presentation of color would be a nice touch. Offering a taste might be the sweet old lady you are channeling, however tea can be calming. Whatever stress or lack of sleep you are feeling keep in mind that potential buyers are in the same situation searching for the perfect house just like you. Sending my love an happy thoughts.

  3. Hi, For some reason, I enjoyed this one…not because of your tone of malaise, but in spite of it. It rings true and irrepressibly resigned to the prospects for future happiness. The photo of Grady and your “wild ride” sign-off were delightful. Hang in there! [Animated GIF] ________________________________

    1. I’m seeing that! Outside of needing to take care of him, he pulls things back out of boxes!
