RELOCATING: IN OUR OWN BACKYARD!


REQUESTING SIMPLE PRAYERS AND WELL WISHES FOR FINDING A NEW HOME!!!


Initially, we came to this rental  property - after Medical Hardships- caused our first house of 14 years to go bye bye. Is was during the last BIG recession also.... this one has been tougher!  This Rental- was an absolute Miracle from God....timing, place and price! 

We would be here a mere 6 weeks to 6 months max, while we weighed all our options, including a fresh start again back in FL. That was 10 years ago. Getting that awesome job at The Hospital ER/Urgent Scare was phenomenal.We are now really serious about finding us some new Diggs, in the Lexington SC/Lake Murray area. Basically- we don't want to move-- we just want a new place with New appliances- that will last us till we say Goodbye!

We are going to see about getting a Modular Home- very small, with little to no yard maintenance- Except THAT, which I choose to do! It could be an excellent time to get what we want at an excellent price. It's time for that and the Pontoon Boat. Between those two accomplishments we have successfully deluded ourselves that this will ultimately make us happy! I'll NEVER STOP DREAMING!

WE- have been working on the Happiness Factor, first by working on our OWN SELVES...making sure WE are taken care of, and then coming back to the relationship.... That way we are able able to go out from home with a Positive attitude to start with and that helps! It helps to spread the wealth and the good feelings outwards. Choosing to make this a fun time, and a time of exploration will make finding the perfect place all that much more:


PERFECT!


We want a very simple floor plan, but have found out lot's of little tricks and likes we want in a home. It will be cool- making it the way we want it! A true Custom design within a strict budget should allow for a nice retirement!

As this will probably be our last home, we need to think about building in Handicapped accessible areas, before they are needed, - Bathroom, Fixtures, Ramps, Door Width...etc, just a  really great project!




right back in here somewhere should do it!

  4. Dreams are the start of reality. Time to move to the next phase, the one that comes after the dream. Get to work.

  5. Moving can either suck big time...or it can be cool if you are going into a better house. I wish you luck and I pray that it all works out.
    That is some wild looking flower in that first pic!

  7. Good luck.

    I bought HBAG with hopes of keeping it until I DIE. Every year I customize a little more of it to suit my taste. It's the most fun pain in the ass I've ever experienced.

    John


    Joe- thanks so much-- Heff and I did a back to back Alien flower post sometime last Spring--heck maybe this Spring--time flies--- however-- there a lots of cool pics there- and I learned a lot about the little aliens!!

    John



    SoccerMom-- I kinda hope this one will for the first time in a long time. It's not just let's try something different- or whatever--it's more of a Dream with Resolve-- does that make sense..... One you have to start with by dreaming- but this time I want to make it work, so I'll WORK ON IT!!!!

    We are both going through and have gone trough a cool transition in the last year haven't we?

    John


    Heff- I'm right there with ya Bro-- I hope we are posting 6 times a day until we are 99. I say posting 6 times- because we will have forgotten that we already posted the other 5!!!- have crapped ourselves with "WDD" and still watch Roadhouse every time it comes on TNT - LOL!!!!


    John



    LL_ A BIG Thanks Bro-- I think I can help make it happen!

  11. John!!
    I love that you are both looking to make YOURSELVES happy before thinking of the relationship! It's such a BIG factor, and it can affect everything else in life if you're not happy within yourself first!
    Good luck with the planning! A nice little place surrounded by environment sounds lovely!! :)

  12. Without dreams, there is no hope. I wish both of you great happiness and that your dreams become reality.

  13. Holland....thanks, and big hugs for the support. I believe we can do anything within reason.....and a whole lot of things we don't even think we could accomplish!

    John



    Perk-- THANKS! It's hard enough to live with yourself sometimes, let alone another person--you have to be well in a lot of areas personally: to be able to give anything away or back to another! and those take a lot of maintenance!

    Hope all is well....

    John


    Kay--- thanks so much--and for just a brief time- I even lost the Dreams...not for long, but long enough to know I needed to get some things right and a course direction corrected!

    Very Big Hugs

    John
