Incoming!

From a playground in the back yard... to a playroom/dining room...

my home has turned from just me to a family of 5!


My son and his family need a larger home so they put theirs up for sale. Unbelievably, in this market, the first person that saw it wanted it. There was one stipulation, they had to move out in 60 days. I told them to go for it and they could move in with me until they found a house. As I've said before I don't use the upstairs. After a much needed thorough cleaning, the 2 bedrooms and large bath are now full of family! The third room is full of Gramma's 'stuff'! Last night was the first night they all stayed here and everything was fine. I'm sure we'll all need some space now and then but it actually feels good to have the house full again!

Congrats on the Godspeed of their house selling. Enjoy your full house, they will be gone before you know it!

That is wonderful it sold so quick considering the markets. I know it must feel good to have them their. I also know it's hard when you've been by yourself for a while. A big adjustment. I'm so happy to have my son nearby now. He is trying to find work here so I am hoping things work out for him to stay.

Oh, how nice to have the family under one roof for awhile. And congratulations on the house selling so quickly, the housing market has been so slow. This sounds like fun!

That's what families are for! Good for you, Jean! I'd do it in a minute!

Now...I wonder WHY your son and family would be needing a bigger house! Maybe congratulations are really in order! :)
