How long has it been for you? Oh, wait….. The NEW neighbors just moved in. Last wk, I think they had the moving truck there 5 different days!! No, it wasn’t a small truck, it was a BIG one!
I’ve waved and been neighborly. We had a garage sale at my house the other day, and watched her move in ALL day long. So this morning while waiting for Schyler’s bus, she came out to walk her dog. We exchanged “good mornings!” And I asked if she was all moved in? She said no, not really, but trying. ” I lived in the last house for 10 years, I just hate moving, there are so many boxes to unpack”
PAUSE…… The house she moved into has had 4 different people in it, in the last 3 years, that doesn’t even count the vacant times!! Yes, its a rental!
Hence my question…. How long has it been for you? How long have you lived in the same house? Do you get rid of a LOT of junk before you start the moving process?
Obviously we aren’t moving this year as we had originally hoped for….. but we are starting to down size! We always have garage sales, and post things for sale. When we move this time, we will be unloading a LOT of furniture too. The kids have so MANY toys, we will be getting ride of dining set, couch set, dressers and end tables. Let’s not even go there on the kitchen junk!!
As far as living in the same house…. longest we have ever ( married couple) lived in one house is in Alaska. We owned our home for 5 years. Yes, we loved every minute of it! However, Jaden was our only child and the house was only 1056 sq ft! You can’t collect much junk in a tiny house like that! We did get rid of a lot of things before we left there though.
This house we have lived in for 3 years, but since we have lived in Las Vegas this is the third house. No fault of our own, 2 of them were rentals that the people
Forclosed on, and never told us.
My sister is moving!! Ok, so honestly I have mixed emotions on that subject, which I have not told her, so I guess she will read it here when she gets around to it! Love you, Andrea!!! It’s funny, I really wasn’t thinking of her moving today, when I started writing this post, but here you have it! I was just thinking it’s crazy that lady moved after 10 years of living in the same house in the same town.
Other than this house, we lived in 2 houses in North Dakota! The longest house was 4 years, and then 3 in the other. They were both smaller houses to, so…. we downloaded.
This house is another story! It is 3200 sq ft. We have junk in every room! Yes, I always call our things junk, it’s not really junk but things we honestly don’t really need. I’m not a hoarder!!! However there are some things that I really don’t want to get rid of, but I’m trying. Now, remember we have had 2 extra kids while living in Las Vegas, so we have collected 2 more bedroom sets, tons of girlie junk and TOYS… (word to the wise…. TOYS produce!!!!)
Anyways, this has brought me to my thought of the day! The plan is to now move next summer, and yes!! We are still looking at Tennessee, probably southern part! We of course want to buy a house… you know what my secret is? Even though I lived in the same house from 3-15 and then a couple years with my dad and a few years with my grandmother (where my dad is still living) I don’t feel like I’ve ever truly had a home…..I’m a little scared…. I want for my kids to have what I had, I want them to be closer to family, and to know their friends for the rest of their lives. BUT, I’m a bit nervous to choose where we get to live…. Sean has never picked a place and he is 41. He was raised military, and then joined after high school, and moved all over.
Now, we are looking at choosing our own state! Our own town, that we want to be a part of. We won’t have immediate friends. Ok, before I get to worked up!
What’s the biggest move you have made? Tell me a bit, I can’t wait!!
