Movin’ On

The big move has officially begun! Twenty-eight years ago this month, we purchased our current house and then moved in the following June.


In those twenty-eight years, we’ve added a family room with a fireplace, a fourth bedroom, a third bathroom, an indoor laundry room, wood floors, a circular driveway, a covered back porch, and made the mistake of adding a pool which has since been filled in. We moved in with a toddler and a year later added daughter number two and then two and a half years later brought home daughter number three. If these walls could talk there would be tales to tell.

But now it’s time to move on to the next phase of life, and that means downsizing so we can officially move to the lake. This weekend we loaded the tower cabinets and light bridge from our bedroom and they now have a new home in our bedroom at the lake.

I think this move is going to be a series of baby steps. Lots of giveaways…so far a bed, patio chairs, wrought iron table and chairs, and a desk, as well as clothes, linens, and kitchen gadgets. Perhaps a yard sale. And I’m not sure we’ll drive to the lake without a load of furniture or clothes.

The goal: full time lake resident by the first of June.

Anyone need to rent a four bedroom, three bath house in the best school district in Ocala?

  1. Make sure to include in your ad that it’s great fun to spray the hallway with pledge then see who can slide the farthest down it in their socks.

    I’m gonna miss that house.
