It’s been almost a month since we showed up at a Saturday morning auction and bought 7 acres and a house.
We close before the end of the month, and we decided it might be good to go and take a slightly longer tour of our new home.
It’s nearly surreal that I need to begin the packing and moving process… So much so that I’ve barely started. 🙂
My husband and I are (amazingly) in agreement that with the number of updates that need to be made we should look into hiring someone to remove the 70’s paneling and replace the carpet, etc instead of trying to do it all ourselves.
It’s always hard to spend good money on things you could do yourself, but time has a big value too. It would take years before we got through each room to make modern updates, and some of them really need help sooner than that!
For your viewing pleasure, I snapped a few photos. The first might be the most modern, appealing room, and the second is definitely pure 1974.
Since my running hiatus I’ve now gotten in 3 runs. They’ve all been surprising awesome, but I have had some soreness the next day from not using those muscles enough lately.
I’m happy with how well my body is handling the miles, and I think the 10 mile coming up will be realistic.
On my run yesterday as I was covering the paths and roads I know so well, it occurred to me that soon we’d be moving. I won’t run by the lake anymore, and I’ll have to find new favorite routes. Certainly I’ll be close enough that I can drive to the lake for running, but I know I won’t that often. I’m just accustomed to stepping out my front door and going.
I will miss these views:
I’ve been working on this post for a few days, and now it’s already September 21. I realize I missed announcing 2 important milestones yesterday.
Our very own blog calf, Etta, turned 1 yesterday. It’s already been 1 year since she looked like this…
And because I picked our blog calf last year on my blog’s birthday, the blog turned 2 years old.
I appreciate all of my original readers and new readers, and I hope you’ll stick around for many years to come!
