{Can you guess what we're up to???}


Yep, we're moving. I just want to cry. It came upon us kind of suddenly, and I'm a bit overwhelmed. We've lived in this rental for 13 years! When we moved in we were newlyweds. It was just temporary until we decided where we wanted to live. Well, we had such great landlords, and loved the place so much, we just stayed. I thought I would be here forever. To make a long story short, our landlords lost their house to the bank and gave us 30 days notice to vacate as they need to move in here!! When I heard the news I got physically ill. There is 13 years of accumulation, and we're moving to a much smaller home. I won't have a dedicated craft room anymore and I just don't know how to feel about that.

We were not able to find a place quickly here in our hometown, so we're moving to a smaller town about 20 minutes away. Not so bad, 'cuz I'll be nearer to my sister, BUT, we both work here, so there will be a longer drive to work. I don't mind so much, as I only work a couple of days a week, but MDH works 7 days a week for the local newspaper; in the middle of the night no less. He's not looking forward to THAT, but ya do what ya gotta do.

I wish I was younger.


  1. Wow! Sounds like that came out of the blue. Thirteen years is a lot to pack up. Happy packing!

  2. Oh no...this is hard for you I'm sure. Change is really difficult at times. I'll keep you tucked in my prayers that everything will just fall into place and something good will come out of this.
    Just stopped by to say hi tonight. I'm glad I caught you to be able to catch up.

  3. I am so sorry! I will think encouraging, comforting thoughts for you. I know how important my home is to me. You will make your new home special. Look real hard to carve out a creative space for yourself, even if it is a tiny desk in the corner! God Bless!
