House For Sale

You read the title correctly--our house in on the market. To the maybe two readers who don't already know, Team Hausfrau is, yet again, relocating. Herr has gotten the position of a lifetime, so we are moving on. While I am thrilled that Herr has received this amazing opportunity, I am a little nervous about moving again. Herr has promised that this is our last move. It better be. We are moving to the land of Dollywood and the Grand Ol' Opry. Nashville, here we come!

The only snag is that we currently have to lie to all of the neighbors on our street about where we are going because our neighbor across the street works for the same company as Herr. Since we no longer speak to those neighbors, we can't risk having the neighbors talk to other co-workers and then get Herr fired before we sell the house. And since we don't know who those neighbors are friendly with on our street, it is just best to lie to all of them. The neighbors behind us know the truth and we are really sad to be leaving them as we have become close to them over the past year.

This move will be good for a lot of reasons. We will be closer to the grandmothers and we will be only 90 minutes away from the girls' godparents. We are also going to be living in the same town as my cousin and his wife who are also relocating there. It will be strange but nice to be living close to family.

So there it is. The fun has only just begun...

So do all your neighbors just think you are moving within your town?

You are a crafty one, Hausfrau.

We're going to say that we are going to be moving "closer to Herr's work." That could mean one of two states since we live in one and he works in another.
