the changes have continued.
Only 6 days after kitty entered our lives,
my husband got a call that our beach home had an offer on it!
It was a low ball offer.
They came up and we compromised a bit.
Basically they have cash and want in by the end of July.
So this is our last 'real' trip here.
I am not upset.
We have tried to sell it off and on for 3 years.
It is affordable to us, but we worry constantly about it.
There have been a series of break in's in the neighborhood etc.
We are rarely there.
We wanted it for retirement...but getting through the worry,
general maintenance and repairs until then was just too much for us mentally.

So I will have an entire house of furniture coming at the end of July!
Stuff I just absolutely LOVE.
Like this dresser.
I am changing my whole bed room around and getting a new closet organizer too!
With the extra money from the sale,
I hope to get a new kitchen in our main home and a finished basement.
whew...that's a lot of wishes.
It could take awhile... but worth waiting for.
So as you have been reading, we have been going through a lot of changes lately...

Congratulations! I love that dresser! How fun to re-do your current home with things from your beach house. Happy weekend!

Good changes. Glad your beach house sold. It's going to be nice for you to get a remodeled kitchen and finished basement.

We retired 7 years ago today. We spent the next 2 weeks packing up our "beach" house, where we were going to retire. Then moved to a new house to start a new life. Traumatic, exciting, fun, tiring but doable. Have fun this month.
