Feeling It

Big day…

Colorado or Bust!

I’ve always thought that anniversary thing was BS. I didn’t mourn my dad on the anniversary of his death (difficult because in real life he died on February 29…). I don’t even know what day my mom died. My brother? I know but I didn’t know it at the time…

But I definitely remember September 15. September 15, 2003, I closed the deal on my dream home in the mountains of San Diego County and moved in.

On September 15, 2014, I closed the deal on the same house and began the serious and final preparations for moving out.

We planned it that way, my real estate agent and I.

  1. Amazing what a house does to us. When I moved from NJ to FL, I bought the cutest little house in an old section of town. After a husband and two kids, we were bursting at the seams and moved to a house that I have managed to blot out of my mind. I love our house now, but when we head downtown, I always have to drive by ‘the old house’ to revisit. Prices have gone nuts in that neighborhood, but it was way too small for all of us to live sanely. Doesn’t mean it wasn’t ever ‘my very first house’ Good post, Martha–I enjoyed this.

    • Thank you! When I moved into that place I didn’t know what was ahead, neither for me or for the US and the CA economy. I envisaged staying there forever. But now it’s in my heart forever so that’s kind of the same thing and THIS is a far better place for me. I think it (the little stone house) was holding me close until I could get my freedom. ❤
