Home for Sale!

My home is for sale and I think you should buy it. Check out the link here.

No, seriously, I'm checking the daily activity on that link, so I'll know if you looked at it or not.

Think about it! You - yes, YOU - could live in the room where I've written practically every blog for the past 7 years. Think about all of the creativity that will be floating around you!

Sure, most of my blogs aren't going to win any prizes (except Best Blog), but wouldn't you rather live in a house where someone put their time and energy into something that they loved doing, as opposed to buying a house where someone may have died in it? You don't want a haunted house, do you?!

I'll admit, someone dying in their house and then haunting it is pretty extreme, but who knows... maybe someone was cooking meth in that other house that you were just looking at online, and then they got caught, went to jail and had to sell their house in order to pay their lawyers. Don't buy their house! Don't support the drug trade! Buy mine instead!

Whew, OK, enough about haunted drug hideouts and back to my beautiful and well-kept house.

We had an "Aha!" moment when we first stepped into our house 8 years ago. We knew that this was the house for us. But we'd like to have another baby and just don't have room for the third kid in our house. (Technically, I'd like to just try for a new baby four times a week for the next few months, then get serious about it. Don't tell Betty.)

If we had two kids of the same gender then we could put them in the same room, maybe have a bunk bed or something. But having my son and daughter in the same room at night is like having a giant python and a tiger fighting in the forest: they're going to make a huge mess, something is going to get destroyed, and at the end of the day there's no clear winner.

That's why we need a new house. Also, our kids are going to private school in Baton Rouge and the school board decided to sell some buses, so now Annie's school will start an hour before Peter's and will end two hours later so that the buses can handle the same amount of kids with less resources. So because the school board is cheap, Betty will have to make multiple trips into and out of BR each day just to pick up the kids from school. It's kind of ridiculous. I keep trying to tell her that there's a brand new elementary school less than a mile from our house, but you know what they say - if Mama ain't happy, nobody's happy! By the way, the schools in Ascension Parish are some of the top-rated schools in Louisiana.

If you'd like a tour of Casa de Tanory, please visit this link here to see the details of our house or click this link to email my realtor. Again, I'm keeping stats on who actually clicks on these links, so you'd better do it or you might end up being blog fodder in the upcoming weeks.

Not buying a new house right now but may know someone who is? Please help me spread the word of my house being for sale! Also, please let me know if you or anyone you know is looking to sell in the Baton Rouge area. Thank you!

That’s a pretty good way to sell a house -with words and humor! :D However, you can do a lot more than that. You should post pictures in here as well, aside from real estate market sites. It can definitely help spread the news to more people. And who else would appreciate all the creativity that was once there than those who’ve read it themselves. Good luck!
