Whew! What a long 4 months it has been. Thanks to our sweet dedicated realtor Bobbi Seguin for selling our house and finding another one for us! Thank you Bobbi! She is certainly one of a kind and we could NEVER have done it without her! She keeps her nose to the grind even when we are ready to give up. Just at the moment when we were ready to buy a lot and she showed us a few, we contacted a few builders and were determined the only way was to build a house but then she found a perfect house for us. I could not even imagine it has a beautiful chandelier in the dining area. Just the icing on the cake! This room in the picture will look so different after I take off the wall paper and paint it. Add the table we made and our decorations. Can't wait to start!!! There were a lot of other people looking at this same house and wanting it. Bobbi who I think never sleeps and never eats but puts in 8 days a week was determined that was our house. Sunday afternoon we nervously signed the papers and were sweating thinking someone else would get in their bid before us. An hour and a half later I got the call from Bobbi saying they accepted our bid. Bobbi deserves far more than the roses I sent to her for putting up with us and our roller coaster ride. I will forever love the house we have lived in since we were married but I am excited thinking about our move now. There are a lot of things to do there like paint, remodel two bathrooms, new cupboards, carpet, and did I mention paint? But what would we do without another house to work on the next 22 years? I know God has plans for us and it will all work out if you let Him be your guide. We have looked at endless condos and more houses than I care to remember. There were mostly houses I never want to think about again! No description would be fitting!!! Thank you Bobbi!
What a beautiful fall! The weather has turned cold! Brrrrr! We have had frost every morning this week. The trees are turning and I hope the rain does not bring them down before I can snap some pictures. We are busy as usual and are in the process of getting this house ready for the new owners. The inspection was completed Monday. We have found a few places we like but none that we love yet. Some of the conditions of the houses we look at are just unexplainable! We have learned to appreciate all the hard work we have done to this house the last 22 years and the houses we look at cost a lot more and of course are in need of a lot of tender loving care. Why did we decide to move? We ask that question a lot. We really wanted to move into a condo and not have to worry about mowing and yard work. We decided we could not live with all the rules and regulations associated with condos. You cannot imagine the board can make so many demands. The list is long and so happy we did not sign papers before we read the association books. I have never been so busy and so tired mentally and physically. Our real estate agent is one of a kind and keeps us looking at houses. She does remind us with her little laugh, "You are homeless." She is a great person and when we do find that "perfect house" she tells us we will find, I will miss her after spending months with her through this process. I did manage to finish Christine in the midst of all the chaos. She is my first Christmas bear of this year. Have a good remainder of the week and stay warm!
