so i guess it'd be a good time to mention that we're making a big change pretty soon here...yep, we bought a different house!! YIKES! it happened quick, which is odd for us. well, i should say it's more odd for jeremy, who likes to research and deliberate even small decisions. but i guess it seems quicker than it really was. we'd been stalking this place just a little bit. we'd gone to take a look w/ a realtor friend some months back, looked at similar homes in the same area, and came home and had some talks about what we would like in a new place and what ugly/nonfunctional things we would be willing to redo or live with.
it's pretty traditional, and i like that. good basic bones for me to dress up and make into my new nest! it backs up to a creek, so we get to start a new garden next year. it'll be sad to leave our first house, especially with all the work we've done (hello hauling and wheelbarrow-ing tons and tons of dirt to make our garden grow!) but i guess that's a good thing, that we're not DYING to get out of here!
and here's sam, NOT helping me with the packing and decluttering...and taking great JOY in it! YAY EMPTY THE PENCIL BUCKET!!!
SO if you know anyone that would want to buy my current house, SEND THEM MY WAY!!! i have a little blog set up for that...such a nerd, i am. we're attempting to sell by owner. if you have any pointers on that, send those my way, too!!
