Striking out into new territory






So Dr. M & I signed our lease for our rental house in the Middle of Ohio last night. We spent some time measuring things & taking pictures.

It’s a small place, made much larger by the big garage & what I consider to be a good-sized back yard (not too big, not too small). I have visions of sitting under an umbrella reading a book in the evenings. It will shortly get too hot to do that – but I’m going to dream about it anyway. I feel like my world is getting ready to expand – living in a house, caring for a lawn, having neighbors to talk to over the fence (we already met the ones on one side of the house – a nice retired couple who’ve lived there 50 years). A new town, a new job for Dr. M., a new commute for me. I wonder if I’ll take this opportunity to be a better person? At the very least I hope that I form new habits that are better for me. I can’t wait to find out!

  1. I love the positive way you are approaching this - I hate change and am very unadventurous. I hope your new life turns out well for you and Dr M.

  3. Oh, the exitement of the new!. New house, new neighbours, new town, new chance.... We used to move around a lot and I always found it very exciting. Now we have been in this town for the past 19 years and although I love it, I still sometimes get that itchy feeling of wanting to move to a new place, with new experiences - but then I look around at all the things I would have to pack and the feeling goes very quickly. Hope you will enjoy! and be very happy in your new life.

  4. I'm going to use one of my favorite words here: possibility. You've always had possibility but now, you literally moving into new possibility. I think that is terribly exciting. I hope the transition goes smoothly for you, congrats on a new scene!

  6. Your new house is cute! I hope you'll be happy there.

    And I agree with the other people commenting ~ a new house and a new town bring the possibiity to do & be anything! No one knows the mistakes you've made, so you can start over fresh and try to do things differently (whatever those 'things' might be)!

    Would you send me an email at kpmomof7 @ yahoo.com (no spaces)? I would like to give you the address for Joshua's CB site so you can keep up with what's going on with him since I won't be posting many details about his medical stuff on my blog anymore.

  7. Congrats on the new move in your life. I love how beginnings fill you with hope and desires for the future, as simple as sitting outside reading. I totally get that.

    Oh I love your new house and won't it be fun moving things in, arranging them and finding a home for it all? Then you'll sit down with your book and Dr M with his remote and you'll look up occastionally and gaze at one another and smile like one of you has a secret. But there's no secret you're content having a place to call your own, your own front door, your own driveway, your own yard, your own space. It's like a breath of fresh air; a fresh rain; a new start.
