Sign is up................

Yesterday, was the beginning of a new chapter in my life.  The "For Sale" sign went up on my front lawn.

After much thinking and discussion we have decided to put my house on the market and I will move into the home of my dear man, Dave.

Sounds easy doesn't it?    Wrong..............I have been in my home for 40 years, so you know a lot of stuff needs to be sorted out.  Where did all this stuff come from any way?  I am going to be very busy in the coming days.

Being a sentimental person, and kept a lot of things, I mean a LOT of things, so have had to talk myself into letting go, these things were important when my children were growing up.   I will be giving my children these things now, so they do not have to do it when they read my will.

All the other things that need to go, I keep telling myself, are only wood and glass, the house is only bricks and mortar.   No tears......... I am starting that new chapter in that book of life, hoping there are a lot more to read before I close the final cover.   

Sounds a bit soppy doesn't it, however, that is how I feel.

Gotta get moving.

Have a great day.

I too also hope there are a lot more chapters in your book of life. Keep us updated on how the sale is going.

What a big change! A lot of hard work but I know it'll be worth it once the house is sorted out and then sold. I hope you and Dave will be very happy in this new chapter of your lives.

Great attitude. New starts are hard, but they're so much better than not moving forward. Good for you and I can't wait to read more as life goes on. Lane

Well my dear, as I've already mentioned, being happy is important and having someone special to share these precious years with is really wonderful.
I'm thrilled for you and hope all goes well, your house sells, and the years ahead are some of the best ever!

Hugs - Mary

Downsizing and selling a home is a daunting task at times, but the jiy of what lies ahead can overcome that challenge.
