Sold my house....

I can't believe it!  Put my house on the market on Wednesday and the first people who looked at it, bought it. 

So much for a calm, relaxed summer but I'm so grateful.  Have no idea where I'll go so may just store my "stuff" and stay with my sister until I find something.  I've been here 33 years and probably would have stayed had it not been for all the steps.  I don't do change very well needless to say.  Would you believe I drive a 1997 Landcruiser that feels like part of my family.  There are so many memories attached to this house.....mostly joyful but some sad.  It's been a wonderful place to spend time with my large family and all my friends.....

 
 






My favorite room is my porch and I'll miss it the most....



Life goes on and things change and I will find a new place that I'll love.....as I said, I'm just not good with change.

Don't think change...think adventure!!! What fun you will have making a new nest! It's scary, but it can also be joyful...a new chapter! Wishing you the best of luck as you begin the next leg of your journey!

Lovely home - I'm not surprised it sold so fast! I would like to sell in the next year or so, but our house needs updating. The stairs are why I want to leave too- plus the 2 acres that require mowing! All the bedrooms are upstairs--and I have arthritis. I am ready to downsize--but the next place will have to have a porch!

It's a beautiful home. No wonder it sold so quickly. Forgot my comment on your other post. I see here you said you would stay with your sister if need be. Happy house hunting!

Congratulations for selling your house! It really looks so lovely, and I'm sure the new owners will love it. I guess you'll miss this place too. On the other hand, I hope that you find a nice house that will suit you best soon enough. It's certainly a new step for you. Good luck and take care!
