Some thoughts about Moving...

WH and I are thinking about selling the Little Wee House next spring.

It's funny, how quickly one's mind slips into "house selling" mode... how to show the house, what repairs and improvements should be done to maximize the appeal of the house and the return on investment. And of course, how quickly the mind turns to thoughts of the new house, what the must-haves are, and what we're willing to compromise on. When we bought TLWH, it was a very quick process, and we didn't have a lot of time to think about what we wanted and didn't want and why. Not that we regret the purchase (we love our house), but there's a certain luxury in having a few months to give more thought to what we're hoping to find.

As I think I've written before, I'm not a good mover; I don't like the feeling of packing up my life into boxes, I don't like the disorganization, I don't like the chaos, I don't like the stress. But of the moves I've made in my lifetime, I'm most excited about this one. The new house we buy will probably be a place we live in for a long time and a place in which we raise children.

And that's a lovely thought.

We recently moved into our very own home after renting for close to ten years. It is fun to look and imagine all the possibilities and dream about what will be!

We're in moving mode right now and I'm remembering why I didn't like it when we moved so many times earlier in our marriage. I'll be glad when it's done.
