Adjusting To A New House



Hubby and I made it through the move. We didn't break anything and we weren't injured and we didn't fight (much). Wow. What an awesome move. Well, the friggin' washing machine died the week before the move but we replaced it.

We moved from a mid size town of about 50,000 people to a town of 1200 people. Well, I guess the population zoomed to 1202 now.

It will be fun to write some updates in this little hippie blog as we find our away around the 14 blocks in the new town and learn where things are. There is a bowling alley there with eight lanes. We ate lunch at the bowling alley, their daily special which was bacon/mushroom/swiss cheese hamburger on dark rye bread with tater tots and a homemade spice cupcake. It was too much food to eat. And it was excellent.

The reason we ate at the bowling alley was we watched the owner put out a sign at the sidewalk about the special as we pulled in to park at the post office across the street. Most people pick up their mail at the post office but we wanted to have it delivered so we bought a mail box and put it up on the opposite corner from where we live. That is where we were instructed to put a mail box. And the lady at the post office already had some mail for us that she was saving till we moved in.

Check your Readers, folks, I know you won't want to miss the exciting updates.

If it wasn't so green I'd think you were in WC. A beautiful new start.

TALON said...

Your new home is so charming! I hope you have many many many happy years there.

Moving is right near the top of the list of stressful events so it's great to know that yours went so smoothly.

Sounds like a lovely town you're settling into.

?? You moved to a smaller town? Moving is a messy and fussy business. Glad you and your hubby got so well out of it :)

Stickup Artist said...

Yes, it's VERY pretty. That cozy buttery house set within all that lush greenery looks peaceful and picturesque. I'm glad your move went smoothly and wish you many happy times in your new home and neighborhood. The lunch sounded a perfect way to kick it off!

Pseudo said...

This is exciting. Your new home is adorable and I love the giant yard. Everything looks so green there. Looking forward to updates on life in a small town.

ellen abbott said...

1200. that's pretty small. We moved from the fourth largest city in the US to a less than 10,000 population small town. We like it so much better. I'm surprised by the bowling alley though. We don't even have one here.

Kristina P. said...

It is perfect! So charming.

Hilary said...

It looks lovely. I wish you many years of happiness there. Looking forward to hearing more about it.

gayle said...

I think living in a small town would be wonderful! Mine use to me small but it isn't anymore.

♥ Braja said...

Ahh, so I've been missing out....

Kazzy said...

Cute video. WHy did you decide to downsize like that? Just getting out of the rat race?

beth said...

i think a new move is exciting and even life changing...

welcome home :)

Eileen said...

Really nice! It all feels so peaceful. 'Glad the move went well too. We are thinking of making a major move within the next few years and I am dreading packing up this ten room house (two rooms in the attic are FULL of just STUFF that I have no idea what to do with!) Ugh!
My goal is to achieve what you have!
All the best!, Eileen

That is a great little video. I love your new house and I just know you'll be so happy there! That burger at the bowling alley sounds pretty yummy.

Robert the Skeptic said...

It sounds like a lovely place to kick back and escape from the main stream. The bowling alley sounds cute.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Lovely! So glad you got there in one piece. What state are you in now?

heartinsanfrancisco said...

and no, I didn't mean the state of exhaustion.

Nezzy said...

Welcome home sweetie. Thanks so much for the charmin' tour. New place, new people...sounds like plenty of blog fodder to me!

I'm so happy the move went well.

God bless your new place and may you be surrounded by many new friends!!! :o)

Shrinky said...

That house ain't just pretty, it's picture perfect! Welcome to life in the slower lane - we made the switch years ago, and knew in a heartbeat it was the best thing we ever did.

Here's to the start of many, many years of bliss and contentment!

Big Dave T said...

That's the kind of house I want when I retire, everything on one floor. I'm getting tired of running up and down stairs, more so now since my wife has mobility issues.

Momma Fargo said...

The house is adorable! Love it!

Marla said...

I love it Techno! Small towns can be so much fun. I hope this move brings nothing but peace and happiness to you both.

secret agent woman said...

Thanks for the video walk round the new house. I'm glad to hear the move went well!

Lori said...

It is beautiful! I am so happy for you. For most of my life I have lived in the country or in a small rural town and I love it. Whenever I go to a much bigger town I always say, "It's fun to come visit the big city but it's even more fun to leave." :) My son-in-law loves to come visit us here(they live in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida)because it is so different to living in such a busy place and he loves our small town food place and their much cheaper prices. :)

Although I once lived in a very small town for a few months, I can hardly imagine living in a town of 1,200, let alone 1,202. Please write a lot about this experience, as I'm very curious what your life will be like. What will you do for a living, for instance (or are you retired)? How will you entertain yourselves (restaurants, movies, etc.)? What are the people like? There's so much I want to know.

Syd said...

Great that you love your new town and home. I am glad that all went well for you. Moving can be stressful.

Jason, as himself said...

Yes, very pretty. And so much space!

gloW said...

Just discovered your blog and I absolutely love it!
You have done exactly what I hope and pray I will be doing in a few short months. Moving from a large city to a much smaller town. If it doesn't kill me in the process...LOL. But your postings have encouraged me not to give up and Go for it!!!
I have added myself to follow your blog.
I invite you to visit mine and follow it too, if you would like.
Blessings to you in your new home.
