postponing dreams

Well, dear friends, it's official. We have taken our CT house off the market. We will try again next spring. This was a disappointing decision for us to make, and we have worked hard to find some peace with it. Once we finally get to the end of this real estate adventure, I'll tell you the whole story, but right now, I'd just like to let it rest.

Batman and I are resilient, we share a vision of our future and we support one another in this "being patient thing". (That right there is a huge blessing that I do not take for granted).
As the weeks pass, I'll spend less time here in VT, and more back in CT. I'll make the best of it...catching up with friends, getting back into my studio, volunteering and having more time with my sweet Batman.
I continue to work on mindfulness, gratitude and being present.  For me, it's the best way forward. 

Oh, but, part of me is so very sad...

  5. Hugs to you Karen. I always find that "letting go of the result" piece the hardest thing after working so hard toward something.

  6. My heart goes out to you, Karen. We have had some very trying real estate experiences in the past, and I know how stomach wrenching it can be. So glad you and Peter are united in your decision to be patient. You are a blessing to each other. Sending hugs. xo

  7. Sorry for this Karen. Is there a chance of renting it out temporarily on SabbaticalHomes.com so you can just stay in VT and let someone else care for the CT house for a while? I found three excellent parties for my house via that site and so far the tenants I chose seem to be very good ones...

  8. I'm so sorry to hear this, Karen. As a friend recently said to me, "be of good hope." Things will work out. I know how hard it is to be patient.
