New House?

So we started looking at houses. Not very seriously because ours is not on the market yet. It takes a while to deal with 35 years accumulation.

Out of looking at some houses we developed a list of 23 "must haves" and "must not haves". We went to look at a house in the town next to ours. It had all 23.

In order to make an offer, the financials have to be all in place and we have been working on that this week.

On Friday, we made an offer.

Now we pray and wait. Prayer is easy. Waiting is something else.

Meanwhile we continue to pick and pack things away and reduce some of our clutter so the spacious rooms we have will look spacious to the casual observer.

More later.......

On the move

One of the results of my problems with my legs is that I need to get on a single floor. My house is a split level which means I have to climb six steps to get to my front door. Then I can go upstairs or downstairs.

After living here for 35 years, the concept of moving is a little foreign. We did two things: Started the process of downsizing and cleaning and looking at houses. Naturally, we found a house we liked early in the process.

We will see what comes next....
