We're getting back to our roots, and It's all about Vintage! This time, my daughter Beckie will be joining me, and we'll be taking YOU with us as we go to Flea Markets, Estate Sales, and Antique Stores. Along the way, we'll be including our personal travels and crafting / repurposing projects.
We are looking forward to helping Families Through Life's Transitions with our house cleanout and estate sale services. Please give us a call or send us an email to learn more.
Well here we go, we're plunging into "The Lake House". We've decided on the house by a lake - definitely, we've been spoiled over the past 20 years, but for taking a step back ??.....This is a pretty damn good step back.
So say a few prayers and keep your fingers crossed that this works out .... I've got our first daughter's wedding coming up in 6 Months! That's where I want my mind to be. Keep you posted!
Obviously this whole ordeal, along with the holidays, Fibro, and family life, have kept me from blogging.
Reality hits - Fibromyalgia severely impacted my ability to work; listening to my body, to avoid the cycle of push, crash, burn, meant I called out sick and had to limit my hours. Two years ago, I left my job. To keep this "short story" short, aside from many other details, we have to sell our house - Our Pink House :( Boooooo, and Rent a house till we get back on track.
Of course, that just means another adventure which my ADD has a love / hate relationship with - love adventure and change, but it also leaves me a bit apprehensive. House showings - clean house - start to pack - holidays - pack some more -no more auctions ( boooo :( ) / buying because we don't want to have to pack and move extra stuff. I have PLENTY of my Stuff to pack.
So now the search for a new home that fits our multi-generational, large family, has become a bit of a challenge. We are limited with $$$ to pay for rent, need 5 BRs, a place to keep our business going (and growing!), preferably with some land so we can have some peace and seclusion. Am I in Dream World? Yeah, I think so. Oh Did I Mention We Have 3 Dogs??? In one of my blogs, I said I'd keep you posted as we went on this journey, and until now, I was reluctant to share, as this "reality" is a tough one to share. It's a bit disappointing, depressing, and challenging. As a family, we are all trying to adjust to what is happening. We LOVE our Pink House; as #5 said "This is the first house I felt "At Home"". So, these are the houses we've checked out. One house that sits on 9 acres has been for sale for a while, but they will not rent; another house on the lake is very tempting, but we'd be a little cramped and that can create tension amongst my clan; another one that fits Everything our family needs, but it's a bit farther away. WHAT TO DO, WHAT TO DO, WACK A DO, WACK A DO. Yes, I am going insane. Wish Us Luck!
