It's not ours anymore...
06 February 2013 | Ashville, Ohio
Well we have made yet another move to "living aboard". We have decided to put the house on the market May 1st with the hopes it will be sold by August 1st. The realtor is hopeful, as are we. From here we will move to Delaware (Ohio) and live in a two bedroom apartment. This will make our trip to "the boat" an hour shorter, but still close enough for Mike to continue working at Columbus State. And of course still close to family. Deciding to put the house up for sale has been our goal all along, but now that we have "officially" made this decision "it's not ours anymore" the house that is. We are repainting "neutral" colors which anyone who knows me that is not my thing. We have already sent 3 truckloads of stuff to the auction house, which I must admit has been refreshing. It is amazing how much stuff one can accumulate over the years. But trying to get your house ready for complete strangers to walk through in hopes that they say "I have to have this house" is a bit stressful. On top of this, loosing my mother a little over a month ago has put my stress level into overdrive. I am though making a concentrated effort to make my life "less cluttered" in EVERY aspect and to not worry about every little thing. So for now, until the weather is warmer and we can get back up to the boat I will concentrate on fixing up the house and realize it brings us one step closer to our ultimate goal.
