Thoughts about our move...
Friday, November 19, 2010
This whole thing of moving was kind of weird. We only began looking back at the beginning of August. We lived in a small city before with a little postage stamp lot, but we wanted more property. Now we have over an acre and are loving it. The gentleman that owned this before worked for Stark Brothers at one time and there are trees, bushes and ??? everywhere, so even the yard will need a lot of attention. He was 95 when he passed and it hadn't been taken care of for some time. But hey, yard work=exercise, right?
I know people thought us a little odd. We had been in that house for over 13 years. Our children didn't know any other home. We had the house paid off for several years now and were enjoying not having that debt! But, boy did things move quickly once they were in motion. To not only buy our new home with lots of room, but to have our old home sold AND to have the new house paid off totally once this close is complete. WOW, God is so good!
It really is an added bonus that the children are homeschooled. The move hasn't bothered them one bit. In fact, I hear them make comments that we should have done this sooner.
Now that the extreme busyness is over, kind of, it's time to regroup and work on me. And thankfully my dear 14-year daughter is on board with me. Looking forward to see what the results will be!
