more packing and a little break

i kind of think this shall be the story of my life for the next month or so.
and that's fine. i'll be taking a break from the computer. it will be nice.
and i will be tossing and trashing and wrapping and packing and downsizing.

we are looking at 10 or so houses this afternoon. hoping one of them is "the one".
we are being very practical about our house this time.
low maintenance.
no storm windows. :)
less than 100 years old.
ya know...the important stuff.
we don't want to be married to our the projects or the daily maintenance or the mortgage.
we are open to buying a house for very little and then making it the way we want it, but it's not going to be a 5 year process. a few months maybe.
or if we can find something perfectly suited for us, we'd love that, too.
we are looking at a wide variety of homes and keeping an open mind.
anxious to see where we end up.
i'll check in now and then, but expect to see less of me this month.
and hopefully i come back a new woman!

I'm so happy for you!!!! It has been a long time coming, but it'll be worth it when you are in your next place. We love having a lower maintenance-type of house now. It still needs some work, but having central air, and windows that actually open has been really nice!!! Can't wait to hear when you find "the one." :)

I'm happy you guys finally got what you sell the house. Just remember when you start freaking out, things always have a way of working out one way or another!!!!
