Another Blogging Break

If you remember, DH and I stayed with DD and her family when I was first diagnosed. It was a little crowded and no one had any real privacy, but we loved being with them and miss being actively involved with them on a daily basis. We've dreamt about finding a large house with a separate in-law suite or cottage (with a little acreage and of course a pool! if we're going to dream, why not dream big - ha!) ... only to realize that we'd need to win the lottery first to be able to afford it. We have managed to find an alternative ... we're going to buy the house right behind DD's house. ;-)

 

We will be closing at the end of October, which seems like a long time from now, but I think most of you will agree that the time will pass by entirely too quickly. So DH and I will need to get right to work on packing and getting this house ready to sell, as well as planning the improvements and upgrades we'll be making to the new ... unfortunately that won't leave much time for blogging (especially since we are still planning to be in Hilton Head for two weeks next month). Suffice it to say, we're going to be busy as bees. ;-) Once we get moved and settled in, I plan to be back with a full report.

 

So until then, I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!

Kathy

  1. wow! such great news for you - hope your house sells fast and that you will enjoy your new home. I hope the new home will not need a lot of work - is this a very far drive from where you live now? I had thought for some reason that you lived fairly close to each as it was.

  3. That is fabulous!!!! My in-laws bought the house behind ours when their home was demolished in the Northridge earthquake. We shared so many fabulous times together and it was wonderful to be able to pop in whenever wanted or needed. You are going to love it. Have fun packing. ;-(

  11. Oh, wow! How blessed to be able to find a place so close to your daughter :) I don't envy you the task of moving, but it will be so worth it in the end! I continue to pray for you, often, and am so happy that you are doing well.

    Enjoy your trip to Hilton Head and think of me while you're there... I hope to spend my birthday on SSI, tomorrow. I'll be looking forward to hearing all of your news, once you're moved and settled.
    Take care.

  14. Oh Kathy I can just imagine how exciting this is for you. Praying your house sells quickly and there is not a lot to do to the new one. I think being "neighbors" is about as good as it can be for relatives. Close enough to be totally involved, but yet still have your own space. Can't wait to hear all about it when you get back!

  18. That is fabulous Kathy! I know you'll love it once the move part is behind you. I'm gearing up for a move this fall too. Good luck with the sale, and enjoy your new home!

  19. That sounds wonderful, Kathy -- being so close to your daughter and grandchildren and yet having your own home. Won't your grands love being able to visit you and your husband every day?! I loved a few doors from my grandmother growing up and I have fond memories of nearly-daily visits to her house.

    I hope you have a grand time at the ocean and that you're able to finish everything you need to before the closing.
