These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Yesterday was a second visit to THE HOUSE. This one was in the company of a contractor who I plan to use for any improvements beyond my abilities, a broker (my son's "boss," so to speak) for another set of eyes, Allan (my son and my realtor) and myself. It went well. Everyone thought the house to be solid, the property to be good. All the work I want to do seems to be reasonable and not exorbitant. Both new sets of eyes and their skilled knowledge were favorable to this being a solid and good home for me. I've asked Allan to proceed with the search for all necessary permits and inspections, and pending the positive out come of these, I will make an offer. I'm excited, I'm nervous, I'm eager to be "home' completely, in my place.

On the other end of this, there have been some significant nibbles at the KC house. One a young woman going through a divorce, looking for a home for herself and her children. She has expressed great interest in the house, but wanted to look at a few more. I understand that completely . . . I did the same thing. She is nervous about taking that big step alone . . . I get that, too. There are a couple of "back-up" interests being expressed, too. It will make my move a lot easier if the KC property sells soon, so keep all this in your thoughts, meditations and prayers. I would feel so much more relaxed about buying my new home if I didn't have the other riding on my shoulders.

OK, I'm ready for a weekend, how 'bout y'all? Let's all go find some fun out there!!


  1. How about Blake's and a movie. We can share home buying horror stories.

  2. anonymous - It's a date! But so far the only horror story is my nerves over doing this for the first time alone. If it's gonna get worse, DON'T TELL ME!!! How is your trek?

  3. Best wishes on a smooth and benevolent transition from the sale of your previous home to the purchase, alterations, and settling in of your new perfect home :-)

  4. eileen - Thanks you so much.


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
