I’ve touched on the fact that Mike and I were getting our house ready to sell, but since it wasn’t a huge focus and more of a slight goal, it sat on the back burner and really we didn’t do much about it. We moved some rooms, got rid of a bunch of stuff, re-organized closets, etc. But we seem to still have a nightmare of things all over and we certainly aren’t ready to move. There’s a couple reasons for this. 1, we have a toddler and she loves getting into anything we don’t want her to. And 2, we have NO storage! RAWR. It’s SO difficult, I’m honestly tripping over things constantly. Mostly toys… but still!
I’ve known for a while that the layout of our current home just isn’t working out. Our kitchen is on a separate floor from our family room, which makes making meals and taking care of the house while keeping an eye on B next to impossible. If I bring her upstairs she drives me nuts and whines for food until it’s ready. She has no patience what-so-ever. OR she gets into the cat’s food which really has nowhere else it can go to be safe from her. If I leave her playing in the family room with the monitor on, I get all freaked out – I mean, who knows what she’s getting into down there!? It’s tough.
Mike and I have wanted to move to the town he was born and raised in since our relationship began. It has always been a dream of ours. It’s only one town over, and while I was born and raised in our current city, after almost 29 years I’m beyond ready for something new. The town is quaint, and truly the perfect place to raise your kids. So this week we saw a few houses …and we actually made an offer on one yesterday! A sweet little fixer-upper with a big yard and lots of potential. And LOTS of storage. AND a kitchen and family room next to each other! AND AND AND even a darling little nook for reading and toys…!!
I’m trying not to get my hopes up but this house has imbedded itself in my heart, I think. I’m sure you can tell. Well, I may as well ask for your well wishes and prayers. Your good vibes and your posi-mojo. Whatever you like to do to wish for positive things to happen for yourself or others, please do that for us. Keep us in your hearts and minds. I am SO hopeful to soon feel like I’ve got it together and to no longer feel like such a disorganized crazy lady! I want to be free of condo fees and noisy (and NOSY) neighbours, and struggling to find somewhere legal to park our second vehicle.
Fingers crossed so tight.
