We've come up with a new plan. Because our new budget has been working so well, it appears that we will be able to reach our goal by early spring. So instead of continuing to half-heartedly try to sell our house, we are taking the sign down. We'll continue to work on our financial goals and, unless something major comes up, we'll put new windows in the rest of the house in the spring and have a big garage sale. Then we'll list it again but whole-heartedly this time.
I like the idea of staying put for the winter and continuing to make improvements. I also like the idea of having another chance to get rid of the piles of stuff that have accumulated already.
It's good to have a plan. It's also good to be flexible with that plan. We'll see how this one goes.
