New View

Here's the new house and the new view .  Its a twin home so the window to the left is not ours.  We are realizing that we need to downsize some more.  The square footage is about the same as our old house but it is lacking in storage closets.  The closets in the bedrooms are huge but its not the same as a closet with shelves in the family room for games and toys and quilts and seasonal decor.  I'm slowly unpacking the boxes and deliberating do I find a place for it somewhere or do I let it go.  So far the granite countertops have not helped in the process,  I haven't broken anything yet!  This is our 11th move in 38 years and by far the most stressful but I'm not going to go into the stress with the people who bought our old house other than to say if they would have been working with a realtor they would have been told not to even ask those questions especially when they didn't have their finances in order.   I'm letting that go too.
The unpacking was interrupted by three days of sleeping and it wasn't just from exhaustion and stress.      I could understand my back, shoulders and neck aching from unpacking and lifting but when my hands ached and looked swollen and red, then my knees hurt I called the clinic. I was walking like I was 25 years older than I am.  By the time of my appointment my right ankle hurt and before I left the other ankle hurt too.  Anyway I'm being treated for Lymes.  The antibiotics have worked wonders and kicked out the sore threat and sinus infection which started the day after the truck was unloaded.  I feel back to normal nothing hurts!  Now I can start unpacking and organizing my sewing room.  Cheers to modern antibiotics  --Ann--

I have been thinking about you and wondering how the move went. So glad you are feeling better and Woohoo! for antibiotics! I'm looking forward to seeing what you create in your new sewing room.

I have never heard the term ' twin house'. We call it a semi-detatched or semi. Personally I cant bear the thought of moving!
