Moving isn’t something we had on the agenda for this year. Maybe next year, but not this year. But the commute to Poss’ school combined with the commute to the city, is killing me. Some days I spend 4 hours in the car. I only wish I was joking.
The nights that Poss has aftercare, after picking her up late, we still have a commute in front of us. It’s simply too much.
So, we are breaking our lease and starting to look for a new house, closer to school. It comes with risks, some big, some small, but they all make me nervous… what if our place doesn’t let quickly, what if it throws Poss backwards, what if we move and hate it, what if that side of town isn’t for us, what if we can’t find a house as nice as the one we are in now…
But, but… it’s still the right thing to do. We need to reduce that commute. Spend less time in the car and more time with each other. It’s more of that balance we are seeking.
So we have been looking at houses, which so far has been a pretty depressing exercise. Why is it that houses never look as good in real life as they do online? But today we saw a place that has possibility. It ticks almost all our boxes and is right within the area we wanted.
The only downside? We would have to be ready to move in 4 weeks. God. 4 weeks. Seriously we have so much crap accumulated it makes me feel all queazy just thinking about it. But we will apply tomorrow, put it out there and see what happens.
So, who is good at packing?
