The search for a home continues. We have quite a few more rental options in one of the other areas we were looking for homes, so that is our fall back plan. We are still discussing a house that we liked, but needs a bathroom installed in the bas... Read more

Today's decluttering was in the garage. I got two shelves cleaned off and packed up. The shelves are disassembled. I just have to figure out how to get the shelves to stay together long enough to tape them. OH, maybe I can stack them together on... Read more

I hadn't really thought about the implications of needing to buy work out clothes for cold weather until others pointed it out on my blog from yesterday. Yes, that is a NSV!! I have never made an actual plan for workouts in the colder weather, l... Read more

Well, we accepted the offer. We will need to find a place to rent really soon, so we aren't staying in one room at my parents or homeless. I had a pretty awesome NSV today. I decided to go out for a walk this evening. I went to put o... Read more

The anticipated update. We got an offer on our house. It was a totally lowball offer. Our agent agreed. We countered, he countered and we are considering if we take it. We could counter again, but I feel like that may just seem (and even worse, ... Read more

Today was day one of showings. We had three. One was supposed to be tomorrow but they came today. My son was sleeping so I couldn't leave. They seemed to understand. They did seem to take advantage of my being there and asked me a few questions.... Read more

We planned to look at four houses today. The first house was really promising. But, it was not it. It was built in 1898 and recently remodeled. The biggest problem is they seemed to install the flooring over a problematic subfloor. It was a dece... Read more

I had a major realization today. There is NO WAY I would be as productive as I have been during this process if I hadn't started taking care of me this summer. Keto and making some efforts to be more active have made a huge difference in my stam... Read more
