We sold the country house!

We must be moved out within two weeks!

We will be busy! Attila and I will be moving ourselves, no moving company, just truck rental and lots of hard graft.

I can hardly believe it, but the news came early this morning.

An offer came in a month ago, not a great offer, but an offer. The people LOVE the house, and will be moving here with their four children. The quick closing is so the children can start school here; so we agreed to it.

This morning we are both feeling a bit stunned, we did not actually let ourselves believe the house would sell, although we hoped it would.

Time to get moving.

Wish us luck, we will need it!

The packing has begun!

WOOT!!!!!!! So HAPPY for you two, Maggie!!!

Attila still working the country job isn’t ideal but without chopping wood, keeping a fire going and paying a double mortgage life is still easier for both of you.

Breathing room. Space to make look at alternatives and consider what you really want and where you really want to be.

So happy for you!!! *HUGS*


Congrats on the house sale! Exciting times for you and Attila. You have certainly been working hard to make changes in your life and now it’s all happening at once! I do hope it all goes well for you. If there are any little hiccups along the way your wonderful resourcefulness and resilience will see you through.

Oh, no! What timing, that Tank would have a problem now. Are you going to be able to handle moving your larger things, Maggie?

TopsyTurvy (Teri)

Oh, good. Didn’t know how easy it would be to rent a truck way up north. Glad to hear you can get around it.


That is excellent news! Don’t work yourselves into an early grave, now, with all that packing and toting. Two weeks isn’t very much time.
