A Lesson in Selling Yourself

I'm sick of having days off.  That sounds funny, doesn't it?

I look forward to my days off... days where I can do whatever I want and I don't have to be late for anything!


Putting such high expectations (haha, those aren't very high expectations) on my days off seems to usually make them more of a let-down.

My days off are Tuesday and Wednesday, and of course I didn't write anything. I was sick the whole weekend. =(

But in good news, I got a response on the house! 

Um, what? I offer a little over half of the purchase price, and they even responded?

I must say I sold our family pretty well. It turns out they are also vegetarian unschoolers... 3 kids and their parents living in 300 square feet! They really support the Tiny House movement, especially for families, and we definitely fit the bill.

There are 2 other seriously interested parties though, and I imagine they are offering more money than we are.  So who knows if we get it. My heart's not set on it, but I am still really excited that we might get it. Even though it's so small. It's just exciting. =D

Lesson Learned

Be yourself and don't be afraid to let people know!  Some people won't be interested and may respond negatively, but there's a good chance that it's worth it for the amount of positive that comes out if you're patient.


  1. if you get it, great deal :)

  2. Yes, always be yourself... this has caused me some trouble and I have lost some friends but maybe they were not real friends after all?

  3. Congrats! I'm not so much a tiny house person as a tiny apartment person, but I've lived comfortably for a year with three adults in a 100 square foot studio. The trick is to think of it as 900 *cubic* feet :)

  4. Well, that sure is great advice.

  5. Good luck, I hope you get the house :D
    And lovely advice ^^

  6. hey who cares, as long as you guys got each other
