Rob, Sam and I are moving!
It’s been something we’ve known we wanted to do for a few years now, but it wasn’t until recently when we decided that right now is a great time. The market is totally in our favor, we have a temporary place to stay and the house looks good (before needing a new roof and whatnot). It’s so scary and stressful and OMG!! But at the same time, it actually feels right, which makes it a lot less stressful (ha ha, I clearly wrote that after a good night sleep). Also, we are extremely fortunate to have a temporary place to stay while our house is on the market, look for our new home and then clean and paint the new home before we move in.
It’s funny because when people ask where we are wanting to look we tell them in the neighborhood just a few miles down the road. Seems a little silly, but we’ve loved this neighborhood for such a long time. In fact, there was this one house that we were going to buy originally in that neighborhood, but my old coworker actually up and bought it! (no no, clearly still not bitter) Anyways, this neighborhood is older, with houses that have character and the best part…a greenway! This greenway (a path/trail) just finished its extension and now connects to the nearby stores! It’s always been a dream of mine to be able to ride my bike to the store or coffee. The greenway also allows Rob to run without driving anywhere since it’s not too far from his usual running spot. Heck, I might even take up running again!
And Sam? Well, he’s being such a trooper through all this! We’ve had a couple of rough nights this weekend and this constant back and forth between our old home and our temporary home is wearing him thin. We’ve had what we call No Rules Days, he eats whatever and gets ample time on the iPad watching cartoons. Oh and there’s been couple nights where he’s ended up sleeping in our bed. It’s a scary time for him, so oh well.
So yeah! Exciting times for our family! I can’t wait to write more about it!
