Thank you to Dani and her son for helping to pack my grandmother’s china for the move. Moving date 12/12/19. Excitedly nervous. Have a lot to do still. UGH I am NEVER moving again after this. I have donated two pickup trucks worth of stuff and am slowly filling the dumpster. Please remind me not to accumulate so much crap from now on! It’s just stuff someone has to toss later.
This thinking about something to write everyday can get tedious.
Anyhoo… J brought some stuff over to Mom’s house. I think I’m going to keep calling it that for a while. Mom’s house. She was the only owner, so I still think of it as hers even though I own 1/3 of it. Someday I will call it my own.
Getting quotes from movers, getting my house power-washed, cleaning, packing, etc. Lots of work to do and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. So, if anyone has any words of wisdom, please pass it along!
My brothers and SILs have done so much work with cleaning up Mom’s house I feel guilty asking them to help me.
After much soul searching and house hunting, I’ve decided to buy my mom’s house. It is almost perfect except the driveway which is slanted. But it has central air and is handicap accessible. Laundry on main floor and two bedrooms.
I am happy but anxious.
Lots of work to clean my current house. If anyone wants to help, I’m taking all offers LOL.
Actually, my ex and his current GF are coming this weekend. We’ll see how this works out. LOL
Sunday morning. Quiet in the house. Animals fed. Now coffee.
Spoke to a mortgage person. Credit EXCELLENT! He said I could afford two mortgages for a while if I couldn’t sell my house before buying another. I don’t want to do that. I guess if it were only a month or two until my house closed it would be ok. On the other hand, he has no idea the other bills I pay monthly, so I doubt the validity of his statement.
I’ve decided against the house we saw that J liked because it has no garage. I can’t see myself cleaning the car off every day during the New England winter. Maybe the rabbits in the kid’s room was a sign I shouldn’t get it. I’m allergic to rabbits.
I have a realtor coming here today to tell me what I need to do to get this house ready for sale. I know she’s going to say I have a lot of work to do. CLEANING! UGH! I hope it’ll be worth it in the end.
Well, enjoy your Sunday. Hope you remembered to change your clocks!
Looked at a couple of houses last night. Interested in one. Bad points: very small, oil heat, no garage… Good points: could see myself living there alone, laundry first floor, fenced yard, quiet neighborhood, well kept, hardwood floors, clean. I could definitely afford it.
Problem is I need some advice. I need someone to talk me through this. J really wants the house. And I could see her living in it alone should I have to go into a nursing home or worse. (Yes, I have to think ahead.) Not sure the bathroom is handicap accessible should I need that later in life.
Is this all my self-doubt kicking in or are these real questions?
