I Want To Move!

Well, we finally did it. We made up our minds and put the Florida house on the market.  I know the market is bad and the prices are so much lower than we had hoped but sometimes you just have to go with the flow.  Hopefully we will be able to sell it and finally make the move to Alabama near our grandchildren. Our little house is just sitting there waiting for us with rooms to be painted and a yard to be planted.  I can't wait!! The actual packing and moving is going to be a chore after living here for 26 years but once we get a buyer it will be Yard Sale time.  Because our house in Alabama is already pretty much furnished we won't be taking all of our furniture, just a few select pieces. I have been bringing boxes of treasures there each trip we have made in the past so I will probably have to have a yard sale once we settle in Alabama also because the house there is much smaller.
And the best part is that it does snow occasionally in Alabama.  Growing up in New York, I definitely missed the snow in the winter months living in Florida.  This past year we were there for Christmas and it was the first time it snowed on Christmas day in 100 years.  They had more snow this year than they had in the last 8 or so years since my daughter moved there.

Now all that needs to happen is to secure a buyer for our Florida home.
