The adventure continues. I write this post, getting ready to leave for my book signing at Lori Foster’s #RAGT18, while at the same time putting back my office after nearly 2 weeks of painter experience.
Those of you who have done this know what I mean. They disconnected both my computers and our internet, and painted over things, moved things, put things on top of things, and so now I’m unburying. And, they’ll be back on Monday. NOT COMPLAINING! I’m just happy they’re coming back (but not 100% sure they’ll be here Monday)…it has been a roller coaster, for sure.
My dogs stand in the house, look at everything all mixed up, their dog beds thrown on top of tables or couches or scaffolding, and they just whine. They look at me as if to ask, “Mom, what are you doing with us?”
They don’t really have to worry. But we’ll all be glad when it’s put back together. And then we have to get ready for what we hope is an onslaught of interested buyers. We have something very unique here, a 4200 square foot house on nearly 61 acres, bordering a 1200 acre regional park and Kendall Jackson winery. I’m holding hope we can make a fair exchange: enough money to have a decent retirement (not from writing) for my husband, giving them the property to continue the love that I’ve put into it. That’s the right person for us as a buyer. Someone who will love it the way it is. Who sees it for what I do.
Oh, I know all the stuff about selling because I’ve done it for nearly 30 years and I counseled and lectured many sellers. But this is my house. This is a one-of-a-kind property, and certainly the last nice piece of property I’ll ever own. It’s time for phase II of my next great adventure. I’m going to have the flexibility to choose where I live and what I want around me. I did it once. I can do it again.
We’re exploring the idea of getting a good Class A Diesel and having it customized. Check this out: http://livingvehicle.com. Here’s another: https://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/tumbleweed-tiny-house-photo-gallery/#!
I can see us doing this. Even has a shower on the back for dogs. Is there a Happily Ever After in my future?
And while you’re at it, check out this book:
You can order it here. Wonderful message and so perfect for me today.
What about you? Are you on a journey back to your wings? It isn’t a freefall. It’s a planned fall. Like a planned burn. Planned chaos. I’m actually doing this because I want to.
Somehow, I think it will be fantastic for me.
