Which is... the House.
We've had our house up for sale since April of this year, and we've had a few people look at it so far, but no offers yet. I realize its a slow time and a buyer's market here in the USA at this point, so we've done all we can to move this thing. We've lowered the price (to well below appraised value), redid the kitchen floor, and pestered the realtor as much as possible.
The good news is that we still have 2 full months to sell before we have to leave, and even if it doesn't sell before then, it looks like we will be able to afford paying rent on a place in the Springs and still have enough to keep paying our mortgage. Overall, the situation is looking pretty good. It would be a lot less stressful if we sold the house sooner rather than later, but we are pursing our dreams and I don't think that is ever an easy or comfortable thing to do.

Thankfully we have really supportive family who have given and offered tons of help. I've always had a hard time accepting help from others as I'm extremely independent and self-reliant. While I highly value these traits within myself, I think being able to accept help without feeling tremendous guilt is probably a good thing. I haven't gotten over that guilt completely, but I'm working on it!
The next few months are going to be pretty busy. Lots of logistics to figure out, stuff to sell/give away (I'm actually looking forward to going from a ~1500 square foot house to a ~500 square foot apartment), and a family visit / climbing trip back to Ohio and the Red River Gorge in KY. Lots to do, but a lot of process to enjoy and anticipate. I'm really excited for it all! Time to hop in the river and go with the flow!
