September 28, 2021 – The Grand Finale?

Don’t ask me how, but a complete calendar year has passed since I began my ‘blogging adventure’. Before I started, I put ‘safeguards’ in place to ensure anonymity. Because most of my family members have a few screws loose, I didn’t want any of them getting wind of what I was writing and sue myContinue reading “September 28, 2021 – The Grand Finale?”

September 16, 2021 – A need for closure.

As human beings, I believe we all need to be able to put a tidy bow on things before we’re able to properly move on. If there are ‘loose ends’ or unresolved issues, it’s difficult to proceed forward without continually looking back. As my husband and I drove around and looked at properties today, IContinue reading “September 16, 2021 – A need for closure.”

September 8, 2021 – Homeward Bound

Today’s the day we’re supposed to officially be ‘on the road again’ but it’s not going to happen. My husband found more issues with the trailer we purchased, so we ordered parts through Amazon but Amazon wasn’t able to get them to us in time to meet what we originally had planned for our ‘exitContinue reading “September 8, 2021 – Homeward Bound”

September 6, 2021 – A much needed break.

After feeling dumb, discouraged, and depleted after spending several hours ‘repairing’ the walls throughout my house (and doing anything but), I really needed a good day. Fortunately, I got it. My husband and I were invited to a BBQ by my brother Clover, so once we’d had a ‘good’ night’s rest (followed by a satisfyingContinue reading “September 6, 2021 – A much needed break.”

July 30, 2021 – Eyesore

An old friend reached out to me via text this morning and told me how excited she was that we would be moving back. I told her that I wasn’t sure whether it was going to even happen because we’d had no movement whatsoever with the sale of our home. “Lower the price?” she suggested.Continue reading “July 30, 2021 – Eyesore”

July 26, 2021 – Shower Talk

What a strange day it’s been! An open house was scheduled so I suggested to my husband that we plan a little overnight getaway and spend some time with my family on the other side of the mountains (since we had to make ourselves scarce anyway). After checking with the dog boarder to see ifContinue reading “July 26, 2021 – Shower Talk”

June 20, 2021 – Motivating Factors

If you ask anyone what motivates them, the top two responses would most likely be love or money. Personally, I am chasing the almighty dollar at the moment. I cannot remember the last time I worked so hard in my life! But in the end, if we get the results we’re hoping for (a substantialContinue reading “June 20, 2021 – Motivating Factors”

June 16, 2021 – Saying Goodbye

I am not ready to say goodbye, not just yet. My husband keeps telling me to call my brother and break the news but I can’t seem to do it. The last few times we’ve communicated, he’s told me how much he’s struggling (with depression). Knowing this, I don’t feel good about dropping a bombContinue reading “June 16, 2021 – Saying Goodbye”

June 12, 2021 – No longer ‘on the fence’.

Well, there’s nothing like the concept of ‘moving’ to light a fire under my butt. I actually managed to ‘tick one of the boxes’ on my list today and finally got around to staining our cedar gate and fence. And that isn’t all. The one job that I have resisted tackling because it’s so vast,Continue reading “June 12, 2021 – No longer ‘on the fence’.”

March 25, 2021 – A light at the end of the tunnel.

I got the best news today! My brother Clover forwarded me an announcement from the assisted living center where my mom resides. After I read it, I was so excited that I nearly started jumping up and down! I chose to refrain, however, as I had a full bladder at the time and didn’t wantContinue reading “March 25, 2021 – A light at the end of the tunnel.”
