The Eagle has landed ( moving day )

We may lose and we may win
though we will never be here again 




So open up I'm climbing in
and take it easy....



I have to say this has been one of the most stressful selling and buying processes you could ever imagine.
From our current home not having the right documents ( certificates of location ) and scrambling around to have them corrected at a cost you would NOT believe ( through no fault of our own - because we had used the previous owners paperwork and our notary at the time did NOT notice any discrepancies when we purchased it )  and apparently being under insured and frantically trying in 24 hours to up the coverage to a million dollars ...................( for the building which is jointly owned by us and the lady that owns the upstairs )
( my next rant will be about insurance companies - as soon as I can calm down enough to rant about it properly ) despite all of it - today is the day - ready or not........................

Here we come


Trust me you would not have wanted to be around me this week......................if you thought I was a little nuts before - I've been bouncing-off-the-walls-ready-to-be-committed-borderline-manic lately :)

We went by the house last night - walked in - turned on the lights - looked at each other in a state of panic and said almost at the same time " what have we done ???? "  lol
Every room looks half the size now that it's empty - how is that even possible?
It's too late to change our minds at any rate - we're in for the long haul I suppose.

I want to thank all of you - each and everyone of you for following me on this journey so far - I've read every single one of your comments - with more gratitude than you can imagine............in between packing.
You guys were my breaks in the day.
I suppose I'll see you next week with my first makeover - or my first nervous breakdown - whichever comes first - in the meantime please keep me in your ♥'s - where I'll be safe and warm. Please?
Ok - it's official now - I'm going off line ( as in the computer is now getting packed ) and that fills me with more dread than I care to admit.

See you all Monday - bright and early - with a demolished kitchen, hopefully LOL

Much love,

  1. Since I think I know you better than to expect you to be totally "unplugged" until Monday (!), best of luck with the move and all the ensuing panic in the next few days. If anyone can handle it, it is you! Can't wait to see pictures. Just imagine how much better they are going to be now that you will actually have LIGHT in your home!! :) XXOO

  11. Good Evening Suzan, I know you are a little sad to be leaving your home, but once you move into your new home, with your wonderful eye for detail, your new home will be as fabulous as your old home. I'm thinking of you.

    All the best.

  17. Don't worry about the "what have I done?" reflex, I had the same when I toured my cottage once it was empty and I discovered that every single think would have to be redone!
    Best wishes on having your Internet connexion back working!!!

  20. Good luck with the move, houses always look smaller without the furniture in them, I am sure it will be fine once you get moved in!

  21. OMG cant wait for more rants. Moves can be crazzzzzzy lol You will get thru it cant wait to hear all about it. Wishing you much luck lol

  22. You seem to be a person who thrives on challenges.....and the move IS one. The only problem is your John does not appear to thrive on such challenges.... but that just makes another challenge for you to convert him to your ideas! Think how borring it would be if you both had the same personality..... you balance each other and both work hard. This will be a piece of cake for you..... just expect the usual pitfalls and keep pedaling! Much luck. Vicki in Louisville KY.

  23. Good luck Suzan. If you have a nervous breakdown, you can always decorate your hospital room or paint your bedpan.

Although....it does make for good reading for all of us! :) Blessings on your new journey my friend! Vicky

  34. Insurance companies may have made you feel like a Witchy Woman or a Desperado sitting in A Sad Cafe. I know you think it feels like you're about to have a Heartache Tonight because you're Already Gone, but tomorrow will be a Tequila Sunrise and you'll know this move wasn't just Wasted Time. By Saturday Night you'll be The New Kid In Town. I Can't Tell You Why the house looks smaller empty, but you can't trust Your Lyin' Eyes. You may have to Take it To The Limit one more time, but soon you'll be having a Peaceful Easy Feeling. Even though you're no longer In the City, you're On The Border and I'm sure as a Last Resort you'll still be living Life In the Fast Lane. Just put on Those Shoes that make you feel all comfy and try to Take it Easy. And remember, you've got the Best of My Love. Sorry, the Eagles are one of my absolute favorite bands in the history of EVER and I just saw them in concert (again) a few weeks ago. Hope this little post will make you happy In the Long Run. Take it Easy and don't drive like James Dean down that Seven Bridges Road. Okay, I'm done now. Seriously.

  36. Suzan, I have been there as you know with our sale. Everything was going fine and then BAM it was a nightmare. Hang in there sweet lady, everything will be OK!!! Remember your vision and hole on to that and be determined. Things will work out and this is a good thing. I know it is overwhelming but there will be a time where you will sigh and love it!!!
