We just sold our house and, as demanded by our buyers, we have to exit the residence in a couple of days. It was a fast sale. In fact, we sold our house and bought another one in under 24 hours. It’s the most coffee I have ever drunk in my life.
We wanted to find a home in the city. After years of living in the country, we were ready for amenities, conveniences and people. So, it should come as no surprise that we ended up finding our new home further away in the country than our present one.
It’s a cute little bungalow next to a lake and the Mecca of the mosquito world. It seems every winged insect has chosen to move to our new home to welcome us and tell us how much they love us. We have mosquitoes, black flies, horse flies and every type of bee and wasp. If elephant flies existed, we’d have those too.
While levelling our yard, we encountered rocks the size of small car. We kept them and moved them until they formed a circle hoping the dogs will like them. Since our new home is smaller, we have to get rid of things including furniture and clutter that has somehow accumulated in our basement. We also have to pack. The movers come on Thursday at 8am. Ready or not.
Nuts doesn’t even come close to describing how we’re acting. Maybe headless chickens. Maybe not even that.
Now the internet is acting up. Joy.
The amount of coffee you drank when you bought one house and sold another in 24 hours? I think you’re going to have to do at least as much every 24 hours until your stuff is unloaded at Mosquito Ranch.
I like to pretend I would like to have a house in the country– the better to stick a telescope on the back porch– but I suspect it would make me crazy quickly.
Ah…You’re not tempted by the peace and quiet? It’s so dark at night, no light pollution and it’s really beautiful…but bring mosquito repellent because they like it too. 🙂
