Ready for a new adventure at Patchwork Times? I’m not sure I am but . . ready or not . . .
It seems like just yesterday I wrote this post. We moved here in early January, 2007 and we have mostly good memories of this little town. I love so much about this area. Doesn’t matter though . . our time here is up and we’re moving to Texas. It’s another small town 60 miles from a larger city. It’s a good thing shopping and city life aren’t priorities for us.
The worst part of the move — Chad says he isn’t coming with us. I always knew some day he’d move off and leave me but I never thought I’d move off and leave him. That’s just not right! He graduates in May and we’ll probably be leaving June 1 so . . he’s 23-1/2 years old and can make his own decisions but I’ll be real happy if he changes his mind.
Finding a house there is turning out to be a bit difficult. We have absolutely not one house in mind that will work. Vince has looked at several we found on the internet that we thought might work but they will not work for one reason or another. We have a realtor who knows what we’re looking for but there are so few houses on the market there. Find a house with a gas stove is probably not going to happen either! Every time I talk to Vince, I say “you’re not going to buy a house before I see it, are you?” He always says no but I’m not feeling real confident.
There will be big changes and the next couple of months will be a roller coaster ride with appraisals, inspections, house hunting trips, showing our house, Chad’s graduation, and who knows what else. I’ll take one day at a time. I will bloom where I’m planted and there should be plenty of adventures to blog about through the process.
Oh . . before you ask . . the chickens do not make the move. There are a couple of people here who might take them. I think since they’re so smart and sweet and productive, we won’t have a problem finding a good home for them. Vince is pretty non-committed to whether or not I can get chickens again. We’ll see . .
