I Am Moving….


Me…not the blog!!! I think it is easier to move houses than blogs…LOL!!!

The husband and I have been looking for quite some time for a different house, and we have finally found one. Actually I think this one found us. Let me back up a bit….

Our current house is not a mansion but it is certainly too big for the man and I. It has a pool (we don’t have anymore kids at home so we don’t use it) a large yard (we are too old to frolic) and a layout that requires you to climb upstairs just to enter the house (let’s face it – too old for that too)…so…we needed a different, older-person home.

As it happens, one of my relative’s renters moved leaving a mess. She doesn’t have the time or the money to fix the problems at the house – enter the man and I. It’s a blessing for all involved. It is certainly an older-person home. It’s a ranch style, minimal yard home. Here are some before pics (keep in mind – our work is cut out for us):

We are over there every day and in the evenings we are packing. Our scheduled move date is November 1st. We probably won’t have all the work done by then but I am okay with that. I just want to have the majority of it done. Maybe?! Oh boy!!!!

Oh and I almost forgot….the best part…..It’s still in The Gap…..YAY!!!!!!!

Well, I gotta run….I’ve got work to do!!!!

  1. A ranch style house is much nicer, you can avoid the stairs all the time.

  2. Super! I envy you that ranch and the downsizing. Convince my husband for me please!

  3. Congrats! It is a good thing that it is still in the Gap or you would have to change your blog name! LOL!

  4. Very cool! Take care and hope you are settled in soon.

  5. Oh do I know about stairs, we have way too many, it makes it difficult for aging parents to visit and it’s way too fun for little toddlers!! I am so happy for you, it’s alot of hard work but so worth it. Every house we have ever lived in has required lots of work. We are possibly looking at moving in the future to a single level too.

  19. Love all those photos, and that you have a sewing room. And that it will be a house that suits the two of you better. As long as you have a room for Callee when she comes and visits.
