I have mentioning for awhile now, that I have been downsizing, a lot.
It started last summer when I knew I wanted to move.
There I said it. Move!
Tom and I talked about it. Looked into it.
Sell our home? No!
Rent our home? No!
Move to a condo? No!
Then canceled the idea.
I knew that I needed keep downsizing.
I'd pack my car and drive to Goodwill and Value Village.
I gave away so many "things".
All long, praying for direction and help.
I kept hearing God say, Purge.
Today, I am reviling ours plans.
(It's a l-o-n-g story so I'm keeping it short)
We are moving to the little cottage that we own,
in the city of Redmond.
Moving date is January 27th.
Some of you might remember this cute cottage
as the home where our grandson was born.
Our home of 29 years,
will still be full of happy noises, love and family.
Mark, Kimmy, Lulu, Levi and Ila May will be moving into our home!
(Like I said, it's a long story, keeping it short.)
Now a little history.
Tom and I moved into the family home in 1983.
Todd was just two years old.
Kimmy was 7 months old.
Todd and Kimmy a few months after we moved in.
So many memories...
When we replaced our carpet, we wrote on the plywood
some messages before the new carpet was installed.
Todd digging a trench when the water main broke.
Prom night for Kimmy.
Our family has just kept growing.
This is the layout of our "new" cottage.
Can you say DOWNSIZING ?
I will be gone from blogging until
we have finished moving in.
Still packing boxes and still purging!
For the past few days, the high school where I work,
has been closed because of snow.
God is good!
