Yesterday I gave you a peek into my busy life and teased you with the promise of our big family goal. Well here it is…
We are going to sell our house and buy a new one in a different neighborhood.
My husband and I loved our house from the second we walked in. Yes, it fit our family, but more importantly it felt like us. We’ve even put in some serious work to make us love it more. Our home is over 100 years old and I believe it’s called an American four square style. I have 3 bedrooms, a partially finished basement and two bathrooms (rare for this neighborhood). Why give it up, right?
To understand the answer you need to know a little back ground. We bought our
house on contract in 2010. In August of 2011 I was in an auto accident that
shattered my ankle. I walk okay now, but it was a long, slow recovery with
complications and set backs. There are a lot of stairs in my house. This meant I
spent three months sleeping in my living room and other wise living in my living
room. Then when I was able to finally get up my stairs and trade the walker for
a cane, we got pregnant with our little princess baby. I no longer need the cane
but we’ve out grown this house and the stairs are not my friend.
