We are either waiting for the tree guy or the mulch guy or the stucco check up guy…Den is dangerous when left to his own devices. I don’t understand why he feels that there is always something that needs to be looked at, attended, monitored. He is now obsessed with painting…and that will truly take me over the edge. He has also been muttering about the deck…we can’t put deck furniture out until the deck is washed and stained. With all of these lists and check ups we are still working on the basement, the garage and the downstairs closets. I knew that this would happen…it was inevitable…we have to go back to Charlottesville and revisit everything we looked at…on our own. We also want to drive to a few beach towns about two hours away from us. Could the answer to our restlessness be a condo or townhome near the beach? Some place where the four of us can go all year long at random times just to sit and read and be “beachy”? Keep our big house for a while and beach it when we want to? Live at the beach while this house is on the market?
We don’t know!
And the not knowing is freaking us out! It’s not as though we haven’t moved before but those were company moves, career moves, funded moves!
This is all on us and we need to be right!
We need to make the right choice! We have looked at Nashville, Charleston, Lewes Beach, Asheville, Denver, Portland, Maine, even Pittsburgh and now Charlottesville. What on earth do we do?
I know…I know…you have heard all of this before!
The only thing we know for sure is that we are not staying here.
We are in a very confused state of mind.
But we are really ready to leave here. It might be lovely. We might even miss certain things about this place. But we don’t want to live here any more.
Figuring out how to do this is really difficult. Keep house…buy condo at the beach? Sell house buy two condos in two really different places?
Buy a big RV…pack up the kitties and see the world?
Sorry for my rant!
Reading this because it is taking my mind off of things!
It’s really good!
