so we’re moving!

Again. This will be the eighth place I’ve lived in Minnesota in, well, 8.5 years. But this is a house and it’s gonna stick. Mainly because I’m tired of moving!

It’s pretty much everything we had on our dream list: fenced in backyard, central air, washer/dryer in the basement, plenty of storage (a basement and a garage).

And then some. There’s a dining room, a huge three-season front porch, a den. The house is half a mile from a brand new dog park. It’s on a dead end road. It’s two blocks from the closest bus stop. It’s half a block from a bike trail that goes all around Minneapolis.

The master bedroom is so gigantic we’re not sure what we’re going to do with all the space. The Kid’s room is huge and he gets to paint it whatever color he wants. We have forced heat instead of this giant gas stove in the middle of the living room.

We get the keys sometime around 11/1 and we’re moving that week. It’s weird how when you live in a city, nobody you know really has a truck. However, if I still lived in Missouri, I’d have access to about 14 horse trailers and 298 full size trucks. I’m still convinced we can strap a queen size mattress on the top of the Vibe.

    Okay, I figured it out. 4 of those locations occurred in the last 7 years and the other 3 places were in the first year and a half you were here.

    Do you and the better half need help moving? I’ve helped move you to 4 of those places, so why not number 5? :)

What's up?
