Hello! Hello! Hello!!! Wow, it’s been such a long time since I’ve posted and I’ve missed you so much. My mind was just not in the right place to write and share. I took living A Kinder Way to the max people! I was in desperate need of some serious self-kindness these last couple of months so I put my money where my mouth is so to speak and I cut myself some serious slack.
So what’s been going on??
We moved after living in the same home for almost 8 years. The only real home we have had here in Texas. If you remember, it was a rental from our Uncle and he decided to sell it. We found out he had put it on the market the day before the realtor wanted to have a photographer come in take pictures!
What followed was a whirlwind of crap. Yes, I’m going with ‘whirlwind of crap.’ It paints the visual that most accurately describes the way the last 2 months have felt.
We were forced to make the choice on whether we wanted to ride it out in our home and see if the new buyers wanted to keep renting it to us…if they would want the home for themselves…how much the rent and bills would change….
But most importantly, we had to decide how long we were willing to live in that uncertainty. I don’t really rock the limbo thing very well.
We decided to start looking for a new place and just wait and see what happened. Well we found our new place as I shared here: Our New Home
So just about 2 months after finding out about the house, we moved into our fancy-schmancy new apartment!!!
The move went surprisingly well. It was a lot of work but totally worth it.
We’ve been here for about 3 weeks now and we’re totally settled in. It felt like home right from the start. Don’t you just love it when that happens?
That’s not to say it hasn’t been a huge adjustment though. Going from a duplex with a fenced in yard on a quiet street to apartment living…no matter how right it is…. is going to take some adjusting!
But we’re getting there. It’s just a whole lot of activity and noise that I know we will learn to block out over time.
This is a furry family member friendly place. Vivi is loving it. She is, of course, the Queen Bee (if only in her head) and she monitors things as any Queen would.
She loves going for several walks a day and she is getting a little better at sharing her space with all the other queens (and kings).
All said …..we are happy.
This was the right choice for us. Sometimes when it feels as if life is kicking your ass, it’s really just pushing you to get out of your rut and embrace some much-needed change. That’s what this was for us anyway. It was time for us to move on and without the whirlwind of crap….we would have stayed in a place we were settling for.
That’s enough for today!
So much more to catch you up on. Other major life changes to share! Stay tuned if you’re inclined! ❤
I’ve missed you!!
