Catch Up

I am finding it hard to keep a blog so I am going to unload all that I have been up to lately in a free flow random thought kind of way because that is how my life rolls

Bought a house; signed a bunch of paperwork; "staged" our house to get it ready for sale; started a fitness program; shuttled the kids to and from various activities; cleaned the house; listed our house for sale; panicked over it selling fast; cleaned the house; nagged the family to keep the house tidy and maintain that un-lived in quality, that "ready-for-you-to-move-right-in-and-call-it-home" look; cleaned the house for pictures; listened to David Suzuki speak (AWESOME, I feel compelled to tell everyone about this!); panicked about the house selling; cleaning the house before sleeping in it and leaving it; feeling not really at home in my own home, which is usually comfortable but never this sterile—it doesn't feel like my house.

So here is where I intend to spend my summers for the next, well many, many years. It will all be worth while.

Congratulations! GORGEOUS new spot! I'm nosy - where do the stairs lead to?

I feel your moving/selling/staging pain. I'm hoping to stay here indefinitely!

Oh, how lovely! Congratulations!

If I had known before my last move how very, very unwilling I would be to go through that again, I'd have bought a much nicer house. Instead, I think I'll just keep remodeling until I have my dream house right here.

After moving 3 times in one year, I swore to my husband that the next time I move out of our current house, it would be in a pine box! However, looking at your lovely pool/backyard, I could be highly motivated! Enjoy!

Romi said...

Wow! It looks wonderful. You must be so excited!

Samantha said...

Lovely! I have sworn to never move again ... unless I find the perfect house on the perfect piece of land ... its all gotta be perfect though. :) Your pool looks perfect. :)
