After spending the last 15 years in the same house my landlords have decided to be really big pains. So we have decided to purchase our 1st house. The house payment will be about the same as what the landlords are wanting for rent every month. Now is the fun part cleaning, packing, and then there is my husbands shop. Who could ever imagine how much stuff and junk a family could accumulate over all these years. It is sad and happy occasion for us. Definetly been walking down memory lane especially when the race car was leaving for a new home. Or realizing that we have raised all of our kids in this one house. My husband says that the memories will stay in our head, yet it is tough. I do have to say the toughest decision is keep the fabric or the piano. I only have enough room for one. Of course the fabric stash will be useful over the next years when our cash is tighter, but the piano that I barely play, I bought because I really wanted to have one again. I am sure the fabric will be kept and the piano hopefully will find a good home. The house we are moving into is only 10 years old and needs no major repairs and sits on a bit of property. The good thing is Sam will not have to change schools nor will we have to relicense all of our vehicles for we will be staying in the same county. There seems to be so much to do to be ready to move it at times seems overwhelming, yet I know we will get it all done. One piece at a time.
