Last week we got the call we'd been waiting on, to find out whether we'd be able to stay in the house we've been renting for the last year, or be looking for a different home.
We'll be looking for a different home.
I'm not exactly looking forward to the prospect of moving, but there are some things I'm looking forward too.
For one, I really do need to "declutter", and this is the perfect reason to hit it hard.
Secondly, there have been some things going on in our neighborhood that make me feel uncomfortable. Namely, 20 something pit-bull owners who have people in and out of their home all night long. I suspect they may be "cooking"...but I don't have any proof of that. The property values in this neighborhood have gone down by nearly 60% and I think people are buying these houses and renting them out to whoever will pay without regard to what they're doing to the neighborhood.
On the other hand, I've made some nice friends in the nieghborhood, and I hate to leave them. (Not that we're going very far away).
So today I get to go out and look at a handfull of homes. I hope it will become obvious to us which one to chose. But these things are never as simple as they seem. In the meantime, I guess I'll take 5 minutes and find several things to purge.
