Well, “life” has intervened…as it so often does(!!!!)…just when I am very busy and my daughter is Super busy (!!) with the preparations for her daughter’s (my granddaughter’s) wedding! (I’m helping sewing on Lots of satin!!!!!) I’m also hooking this new rug and trying to get these patterns ready so I can actually offer them to anyone interested….!!!
The story goes like this…
When I moved here to my apartment, it was my intention to stay here in Oregon (where I am very happy!!!) until I needed more help or my health wasn’t as good…and then look for an apartment or a house closer to my daughter in Vancouver Wa..(right across the Columbia River ). It seemed reasonable at the time I moved here in 2013.
However, a couple of months ago, I thought that I really didn’t want to move when I wasn’t in good health or was having trouble walking or going gaga…so my daughter and I discussed it and thought I should start casually looking for a home near her. With an idea of finding something and moving next Spring or Summer.
Because it took my daughter a year or two to find her home and to actually buy it (homes in her area go fast and they often have several offers on them) we contacted a realtor friend and asked her to just keep an eye out for what we wanted. We figured something would come up in the next 6 months or a year and we’d really start looking in the Spring.
Of course, since this is the worst possible time (!!!!!)…Murphy’s Law has struck again…and I am in the process of buying a home right now…on top of everything else! 🙂
The perfect little house came up only 4 minutes away from my daughter, it had several offers on it and they accepted mine! So if all goes well, I’ll have to start packing and moving right after my granddaughter’s September wedding!!!! Yeeeks!
So…please overlook any additional “oddities” on my part as I try to juggle all of this! I’m sure I can do it… but I feel like I am like the man who jumped on his horse and rode off in all directions!!!!! …lol…
So I am a couple of weeks behind schedule (!!!) but next week I’ll post pictures of the patterns I have and if the paper is finally in at Staples, I can get the last batch finished. I can also finish this rug and keep sewing on that satin and signing papers, etc. for the house in my spare time! Whew!!!
Now you just know that if I wanted to move right away, I would never be able to find Anything even remotely Near my daughter! And if I did find something, it would be waaay above my modest price range!!!!!
I’m delighted with the house, the location is perfect and I needed to act now. Of course, now that I have This Oregon address on Everything(!!!!), I’ll have to buy labels to cover the addresses on patterns, cards, etc. At least we are keeping a sense of humor about it all…I may just sit and laugh today, and not do anything else!!!!!
Anyway…that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it…Happy Hooking! Here is Progress on Day 13, you can see some of my “redesigning” scribbles…Sunnie 🙂
