Yes, I know a little quiet… on the blog. But I’m going to change that and catch you up…
I don’t know how some bloggers find anything to say… when in a waiting game. I can’t seem to think of anything worth talking about outside of the ‘major’ thing. Especially since it seems to affect every single aspect… can’t talk about sewing because its all boxed up, can’t share about what’s on the longarm, again because it’s in pieces, can’t share about life in general because it is all on hold!!! Can’t really share what is going on in the store, because most has been boxed or nearly impossible to get to. But if you order… I’ll make it happen!
Also, didn’t want to say too much or project our ambitions. Too often, the Universe takes the opportunity to get involved. You know Murphys Law! It has been a long 30 days waiting to close! We sat in the middle of a deal that had at least 3 moving parts, maybe more.
Where we are
So to catch you up to where we sit now. Both houses have closed. The one we are leaving has new owners! They are excited to live here. Which is just what we wanted. It has been a comfortable house, and large enough to accommodate both of our studios and a place for the dog(s).
Where we’re going
A few hours later, we closed on the new place. The Owner is looking forward to a place with nearly the same amount of land, but a smaller house. We, on the other hand, are looking forward to more space inside and especially more space outside!!
Moving trucks arrive on Monday. Yes, trucks! The road will not accommodate a big semi and trailer, so we will make the move over 2 days. The new place is close; about 1/2 hour in a car, a bit more in a truck or two.
There are some changes we are going to make inside. A couple of wall modifications, (doorways being closed/added), and new flooring on the main and upper level as well as paint. Lots of paint!!! The original owner was also a quilter.
The difficult parts have been accomplished. Deciding on the colors, types, and styles. Next living through implementation!!! Needless to say, the above picture shows why we need to paint, there are other rooms that also depict a reason to paint too.
How do you not talk about the elephant in the room?
