Move? Me? Hmmm…

Posted on: October 1, 2012

When we first viewed our home, I walked in the front door and my mind declared, “I’m home.”
That was a few years, and many renovations ago. Many UNfinished renovations, I might add. (There are days when I am tempted to call Mr. Bryan Baeumler except that his show, Leave it to Bryan, scares me. Disaster DYI, is the one we need to light a candle under you know whose butt…) But, I digress. (You know we’re in trouble when I’m not out of the first PARAGRAPH and I’m digressing…)
I truly thought this was the last house I would live in, (barring the Nursing home that will one day have to put up with me…). So, it is with considerable ambiguity that I join my husband in search of another property. I thought we would find NOTHING even remotely similar to what he was envisioning, so, with a secret smile, I hunted the MLS boards and viewed countless potential properties.
“Oh drats! If only the HWY wasn’t so close.”
“Fudge! The HWY’s too far away!”
(Are you beginning to see a pattern?)
I’m not being especially picky. The HWY is important for one of our businesses. (How can we transport stolen/illegal stuff if we can’t access the HWY? LOL) Yes, we operate all our businesses from home; and no, I’m not that sick of seeing him…yet. Oh, there are days…
Okay, back to the house search. We have come across a few that are close. We are willing to make sacrifices if other amenities or SOMETHING makes up for the lack.
The trouble is, although I never thought we’d move again, every place we view, I immediately begin moving in and setting up; discussing where I’ll put this and where that’ll go; and what renovations I’d like to make. (I’m a list maker at heart.)
Well, we’ve narrowed it down and will be making a choice in the next few weeks; maybe. (Yeah, we’re procrastinators. If it’s not perfect, we tend to think, “Will the next one be?” We do this because we’ve chosen wrongly in the past and lost out on a five MILLION, (yup, you read that right…) dollar PROFIT. (Don’t start asking for money; I said we MISSED OUT.) With that kind of record, we wanna be SURE the next place is right! Besides, I kinda like this house.
The first, we feel will be ready to exploit richly in about twenty-years, so it has tremendous appeal; early retirement and all that. The other might be the ‘forever’ home. It too will be ready for exploitation in about twenty-years; however, the land to exploit is six-times as big as the first; for less money. Perplexing, we know. What to do? What to do?
Of course, I’m okay with staying put too. Just send Mr. Baeumler over, ‘k?
