Honey, I'm Home!

I'm back!

No, I haven't been on a vacation. I've been moving which isn't nearly as much fun as a vacation.

Life is all about change, and the decision to sell our two-story home and buy a one-story has been a huge change.

New Adventure

Darling Hubby and I made the decision to do that last year. It took us a while to get motivated, but by April we'd committed to the change because of my increasing vision problems that may lead to blindness. I didn't want to be living in a two-story if that happened.

From January through April, we "polished" our home until it sparkled like a diamond. It went up for sale on May 2. Within a week, we had sold it. We spent the rest of May and June shopping for a one-story house, but had no luck. 


At last, we found a one-story. We began to pack up the house. We closed on the home we sold. Ten days after finding our one-story,  we closed on the home we bought. 

The morning of July 13, remodeling began. The new hardwood floors were finished July 15, and movers brought our furniture the next day.

The rest of July has been overseeing the remodeling, waiting for contractors to show up, and staring at the mountains of boxes stacked in every room. 

We won't unpack until the electricians are finished and the painters have done their thing. It was difficult to leave our perfect home and take on another remodeling project, but sometimes, you have to take a leap—even though you know it means a lot of work.
