A Look Back – Part 2

The top 5 events or happenings of 2009

#3. Selling a House – They say that selling a house is one of the most stressful events of one’s life. Whoever “they” is, is right! If you’ve never sold a house, I envy you and will pray daily for your soul that you never have to go through this experience. In fact, I think I’d rather have my bottom lip gnawed off by a pack of rabid muskrats then to have to go through that agony again. Granted, it wasn’t the worst experience of a lifetime, but it definitely ranks right up there on the top of the list somewhere. Don’t get me wrong. Our realtor was great about showing the house and getting the word out. And considering the current national housing crisis, the very fact that it sold in under 45 days was a huge blessing in itself. But I don’t think that Tasha and I were prepared for just how emotionally taxing it would be. From the initial preparation of getting the house painted and the roof replaced (not to mention the countless chiropractor visits and co-pays after my falling off our roof experience), to the ongoing negotiations and mind-games with our first bidders that rivaled any game of World Series Poker, the whole experience was about as mentally exhausting as Paris Hilton on Jeopardy. But, by the grace of God, the house sold and we moved on to Raleigh where some great things awaited us, not the least of which was the fact that I would be serving on staff with my brother at a really great church called Journey.

    Oops. I guess that's the "part 1, 2, and 3" thing. Just call me impatient.
