What an Experience!!!

Does anyone like to move? The only thing  accomplished in my opinion is  a lot of stress and strain with a great opportunity to get rid of the junk collected over the time you’ve been in your home. Right now my world is in total upheaval. My new home is upside down. Tile people have been working here since Thursday afternoon laying new tile throughout the house.  It will be wonderful once they are done, but right now every piece of furniture is piled in the dining room.

The next part of the adventure after the tile is painting. Right now all the walls are painted white and that doesn’t suit me at all. I want color on my  walls. I think white walls are boring. The hard part is coming up with the colors I want. I spend a lot of time looking at paint sample cards and the color wheel. Once I can make a decision about my wall colors every thing else flows smoothly.

My blogging will continue to be slow. Maybe I can do it once a week until things are settled and then resume my Mon., Wed. and Friday schedule. I have to say I do miss the routine of my writing daily, but I can’t handle it with everything I’m trying to take care of with this move.  Thanks for letting me whine a little bit.  Until next time.

Squatter Equals Headache

Do you want to know what frustration is? It’s having a new home that you can’t move into because the boyfriend of the previous owner will not leave. We got to close on our gorgeous country, retirement, home this past Friday 5/4/12.

Let me start from the beginning.  There once was a geriatric woman who lived in a house with her boyfriend.  She decided she wanted to move to California and sold her house and left her boyfriend behind, wanting nothing more to do with him.  He was supposed to have packed up his things and left, but to our surprise he didn’t.

I can hear the voice in your head saying, “I would call the police and haul his butt out of there.” Guess what I did call the police and found out there isn’t a thing I can do. That was his home and he can stay there until we legally evict him through the courts. I couldn’t believe it when I heard those words coming from the officers mouth.

Here we are with a house that has someone living in it and my entire family and a total of six dogs, two cats, are going to move in on this gentleman tomorrow.  So needless to say it should be a fun time for all.  I will not be posting for a while due to not having internet service.  As that famous line goes, “I’ll be back.”
