~On the Move~


Hi! Everyone, it seems like for ever since I've posted... Gary and I have been busy packing up the house. We bought another home and will be renting out our sweet cottage. I do love this home, but with the housing market at a low we felt it a wonderful opportunity to purchase another cottage.
We will be closing escrow this week and will start the move on Thursday.
I have been reading your posts and have tried to leave as many comments as possible. So if I have not left you one, please know I am still here and I have been reading and trying to keep up with you all.
Packing takes for ever and I have so many things, honestly its a bit embarrassing!.
Gary and I have moved so many times in our life, and that's a bit embarrassing too. Really it is, all our family and friends who have know us our entire married life always say "so long are you going to live here!" we just laugh!
Gary and I have always loved to fix up homes, but we keep moving into them.  Since we are all family here, I will tell you what number this new home will make it will be  Cottage #12, yes its true we have owned 11 homes and this will be #12.....we are so crazy!!!.  but in a good way crazy!.
I may not be able to post for a few weeks but when I can, I will show you the new (Cottage #12).
I will miss you all and will be thinking of you and wondering what you are up too...
Big hugs and Love,
Elizabeth~on the move again~

Elizabeth,
Good luck with all the packing. I know when we sell the Inn, it will be a major undertaking to just get all my dishes packed up! We will be moving back to our little cape house by the end of June, so that will be good.
Looking forward to seeing cottage #12 :)

Oh what fun! I love a new (or new-old) house! It will be such fun to see how you transform your new home!

Check in when you can. We'll all be anxious to see the "before" photos! *Ü*

How exciting Elizabeth! As a person who has moved many times, I have received those same comments. I do not like moving anymore and promised myself that I will be staying at my current home for quite a while.

Hope all goes smoothly with your move. I look forward to seeing your new cottage! Happy nesting!

Hugs,
Tracy

Hi Elizabeth,
Good luck with your move and your new cottage. I can't believe you have owned 11 homes and this will be your 12th! WOW - that's a lot of moving. We lived in two apartments and three homes in our almost 36 years together. Both hubby and I moved a lot as children so we know what that is like - new schools, new friends. We hope we don't have to move again for quite awhile. We've been in our current home 10 years now. Although moving does help you declutter. LOL

Vee said...

Flabbergasting! And exciting, too! Happy packing and I'll catch you on the other side of your move. You two must really love to fix up cottages more than you love to sit around in one once it is finished. Lucky person who'll enjoy Cottage 11!

Kathy said...

#12..~wow, and I thought we moved a lot!

Your cottage is so lovely, it must be hard to leave something as dear... like leaving behind a child of your own I suppose... hopefully, whoever comes along will take good care of it...

Have a great day, dear Elizabeth...

What an excting undertaking! We have had 17 homes but not all of those were *sweet* houses! I WISH!! Just the cost of being military so I envy people like you who have been able to move and put a real creative stamp on each home!
You will be in my thoughts and prayers that all goes well for you and I know we all are excited to see photos!!

Love,
Sue

Cindy said...

Don't be embarassed, if that is what you and hubby enjoy doing, then just enjoy it, don't apologize. My hubs and I have been married 20 years and have moved 7 times. That is a lot, too. After this many I am exhausted with the whole process, so I know it must be very tiring for you at times. Most of all Enjoy Life! and the move!
Hugs, Cindy S

Hello Elizabeth,

It was so good to hear from you! Thank you for the sweet words about my new grandson and well wishes for me! I too just love Sean's cute little baby cheeks and when I saw him last night showered them with lots of kisses. I teased my DIL and told her I want to be a stay at home grandma!

I hope your move is going well. I will continue to pray that all goes well and you are able to get settled into your new cottage without any snags.

Hugs,
Tracy
