Well, our neighbors will now know. Our realtor put up the sale pending sign today. We have a contract - just shy of six months on the market! The inspection is Thursday and it is contingent on the sale of our buyer's house. Apparently the couple purchasing their house is pretty particular so I am a little nervous about them, but hey, this is better than the alternative. Now, my husband and I are a tad superstitious. If there is a deal in the works or the opportunity of something good coming our way we DO NOT talk about it for fear of jinxing the situation. We really aren't superstitious about anything else, but we do see eye-to-eye on this tactic. In my mind, by having the sale pending sign posted we are inviting bad luck. Crazy? I just keep saying my prayers and hoping for the best. I am hoping I will feel a sense of relief after the inspections since I haven't felt it yet.
On another note, http://allisonstrine.etsy.com has some very cute stuff on her site. I ordered a pendant after reading about her at http://maizehutton.com. Her jewelery has lot so color and is very whimsical. I have her bookmarked for some upcoming birthdays!
