Okay, I guess it's time to share that we are moving. Not my blog...we...as in my husband and I are moving after twenty seven years in the same house. I won't bore you with all of the details that brought us to this decision. Let's just say we are ready to say goodbye to suburbia. We have raised our children and we think we would enjoy being closer to the center city...i.e. museums, theater, events, coffee shops, etc. I was going to say bookstores, but I fear their days are numbered. Houston, by the way is not the city we are moving in to!.
We know that moving closer to any of our children is risky. They could easily change jobs or be transferred to a new city. So, we are moving closer to my family. Some of you remember our recent trip to Ft. Worth, Texas....well, we are moving there.
We have a buyer for this house, and at the moment are going through all of the red tape. Inspections, appraisals, etc. and closing is targeted for March 1st.
In the meantime, I will blog occasionally about this process.We are also headed  out on a golfing vacation to Arizona (that was planned before this one). on February 1st for two weeks, and hopefully I will send back pictures of sunny Tubac.
Back to the move. This is not a decision that came easily. We have been in this house for twenty seven years (as I said) but we have both been in Houston over forty! We have a lot of friends, and they are not happy. Okay, enough said. I hope to continue my blog. If you are a lurker ....speak up and comment on occasion, it's what keeps us bloggers going! Stay tuned.....Janey

  1. Yea, now I won't have to come all the way to Lake City to visit. Not that I won't. Hope to this summer. I am glad you are moving closed to sisters. We are not getting younger cousin. Love you and hope you have a great time golfing. I am leaving on my first cruise Sunday. May 'walk' will be on hold for a week.

  2. Hello:
    How very, very exciting all of this is. And it is most certainly, after all of those years in your present house, a life-changing one but one which, we are sure, will prove to be the right thing to have done. After twenty-five years in the depths of the countryside we have embraced city life and in a completely new and somewhat strange country. We do wish you well. It can be done!!

  3. oh, bless you! i know that is no small undertaking - or easy decision, either. fort worth is a wonderful city (or at least the pieces i've seen are). a new adventure...

  4. Oh, Janey what an exciting adventure. That must be a lot of work for you two. That's why you were clearing out your things. But I can understand the reason. Many eldery people here do the same. Wish you all the best and hope to see some pictures of the changes.

  5. Wow, Janey! What a big decision. Fort Worth is a nice place; I'm sure you'll like it. I used to visit the Dallas area a lot when I had family there. There's great shopping, for sure!

    The best of luck with your adventure!


  6. I think it's a great decision, plus you are closer to Colo.

  7. Being flexible and accepting (instigating) change keeps you young! How exciting to be moving. I made a visit to Fort Worth when my younger daughter was looking at colleges. It seems to be a nice city and Dallas is a short distance as well. Bravo to you!


  8. Thanks everybody....Big decision for us. I hope we won't regret it. At the moment I am looking forward to the escape to sunny Arizona and it's many golf courses. Several couples from Colorado will be there too....I think a party is brewing !

  9. This is indeed a big change, but it sounds like you have given it much thought. Lots of work, but it'll be another adventure. Despite the work involved enjoy the experience!!
