Words of Wisdom
Well, things have been happening around here, I had to make a very difficult decision. I decided to sell my home, our home. I love this house, we built it with the intention of raising our children here, hosting holidays for our grandchildren and retiring with the neighbors we adore, but things change. Life changes in ways you can't ever imagine and I've learned adapting and being flexible is the best approach. Now that I am a single parent the house has just become too much for me to take care financially and physically.
I have been struggling with this decision for quite a while but something just clicked in my head and I knew it was time. My children are sad but old enough to understand. They see the hours I spend working just to get by and realize that at this point in our lives the home just isn't worth all of the struggles.
I feel like this huge burden has been lifted off my shoulders, like I am discovering a new sense of freedom. I put the house up for sale and within two weeks I had a really great offer. I just know it was meant to be, the timing is right for us.
Now it's decision time, do I buy a house I can redo and make my own or do I buy a move in ready house? I really want to redo a house but I need to take my time and be smart. That is what is so awesome right now, having options.
