This past January we moved..something thousands of people do every day..We didn't move very far, 17 miles to be exact.
But no matter whether you move next store to where your living, or 100s of miles away..all moves have the same things in common. deciding where you want to move, and findng a place, and moving... We have been renting a home for the past eight years, and so what we would be looking for was another home we could rent..and because we like the area we have been living in we decided that we would look for another home in this area.
Because my husband works, we knew we had to find a home relatively convenient to where he works to make it easier for him to get to work..and with these needs listed began our search..Thanks to the advances in technology, and having everything online at your finger tips..We began our long, arduous search for the "Perfect New Home" for us...We must have googled in every Real Estate Agency ever created..in this area, and scrolled through hundreds of homes, picking out the "Perfect Home", and then calling to find out that "there was a contract on it" or it "had been rented"..at that point, feeling let down..we would decide that we would "give it a rest" for awhile, and start our search "later", but then I would go back online, google in another Real Estate Company, and start the routine over again..fill in what our criteria was that we wanted in a home..Three Bedrooms, Three Baths, Open Floor Plan, Formal Dining Room, Large, well planned kitchen, and all open to a Fireplace, with a Lanai, or Screened Porch.
Just when we were about to give up there it was, a listing for a 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Large Open Floor Plan, with Living Room ,Family Room, and Kitchen that Opens to a Fireplace, with Large Screened In Porch..all opening to a common area with amenities that included a Club House, Tennis Courts, Swimming Pool, Childrens Play Area, and Dog Park ..I remember we could hardly get down to see the listing quick enough, and as soon as we saw it..knew that this was it ..this was going to be our new home! We signed the contract just before Christmas, and moved Jan 7,2016. A moving company moved our household belongings, (All the furniture), and a friend with the use of his trailer, and help of friends moved everything else..This is where it got tricky, what was supposed to be a "well planned" organized move, took on "a life of it's own", as loads of Bins and Boxes began to arrive, and were quickly piled up, boxes with dishes, and personal items..It was like someone had "Opened up the Heavens, and it was raining "All of our Worldly Posessions". It seemed like all we did for the longest time was go through boxes and unpack.
We still have some boxes to go through..and the Bins..all 13 of them. some holding my Holiday Decorations, and some, well we don't really know what's in them, because they didn't get labeled..and to tell you the truth at this point , if I haven't missed whatever is in the boxes, then I figure I really don't need to go through them...besides Christmas is coming..and I'm a thinking..that wouldn't it be fun to give our friends and family a beautifully wrapped box with a surprise in it for Christmas! haha
