so we now have our little place in the woods to retire to.  Wish oh wish I could!  Spent the weekend at the hospital with my hubby.  He has cellulitis in his ankles.  Told him if he doesn't start taking better care of himself, I'm going to be ALONE before I retire.  Big old PooP.  Didn't keep him around this long so I could spend my golden years a widow!
Anyway, I'm so excited about the house!  I have a formula now.  For every one thing that goes in the new house, three things go in the "get rid of" pile.  At the moment, that's working okay, but as we get down to the end...I don't know!
Anyway...haven't decided on a date to move or when to put the current house on the market.
Love and hugs...

Bev, I am right there with house has been on the market for 2 weeks, and living clean and neat is not my style! I packed and de-cluttered, taking down pictures and knick-knacks along the way.  I am not happy about putting the comforter on each day, drying the shower with a squeegee, cleaning the kitchen, etc.....Leigh's place has been on for a few weeks, not much luck there either. We move into our new house in November. Yikes!

Anyway, congrats on the new Nest and I hope those golden years shine more and more each step of the way!

Congrats on your new home, send us some pictures okay. I still have a few years until retirement but we plan to travel. Tell hubby to get with it too, you didnt work this hard to sit on the porch by yourself. Im very happy for the two of you.

I am so happy for you............but make that man of yours stay well!

Your place sounds so wonderful. ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY! Isn't it hard though leaving the other house behind? How we can get so attached to a house, I don't know.

Hugs and Love,

Dear Bevie....I am so happy for you ! The new place sounds wonderful. I sure hope that
your hubby takes better care of himself and that he is feeling better.

Love and hugs my friend

She calls it friendship; I call it hope....
