"Progress always involves risks. You can't steal second base and keep your foot on first."
-Frederick B. Wilcox
This past week has the impetus to become a momentous one in my life. But, a couple of more things have to fall into place before the history books will decide.
However, it was not without some hand-wringing, and to be honest, a little bit of freaking out. Last Sunday, while waiting for our house in Georgia to close at some yet-to-be-determined date next week, Rob and I put an offer on a house with no contingency clause. This past weekend we watched the movers pack, load, and drive away with most of our household goods to sit in storage until we move into a house in South Carolina.
Big risks bring big rewards. It could be the next step in our life journey, or heaven forbid, if something falls through, it could be the biggest nightmare ever. Keep your fingers crossed that it's the former.
Journaling reads: Our Buford house has been on the market since August. We've been house-hunting in Spartanburg since October. This week we had to take an uncomfortable risk to move ahead on both fronts. On Sunday we put an offer on a house (without a contingency!), and then we heard that our closing date had been postponed indefinitely. Scared us silly, but we have our fingers crossed!
We moved out and away. We accepted an offer.
