Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 51 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Staying put.

We took the house off the market today. It has been on the market for 9 months and despite lots of showings and visitors at open houses, we have yet to have one offer. We are tired of living in 'limbo', with 20% of our stuff in boxes in storage in the garage to make the house look bigger, and jumping everytime the phone rings thinking we have to put away the homeschooling stuff and mop and vacuum for a showing.

So if we are going to move into a bigger home, someone will just have to appear and offer to buy our house while not on the market, while we are actually living in it with our stuff.
