More bloggy work, regular work, and then business meeting with Scott work (yes we actually do have those!). And then I looked online and about passed out. There’s a house the next street over that is the same as ours and it is up for sale. I looked it up online because I was curious to see what it was selling for and whoa that’s a lot of money. And then I saw the inside and that’s when I passed out. They redid the house and it looks amazing. Our house needs updated in a huge way but that’s expensive (even when you do it yourself) and takes time.
However, it’s a must for us because if we ever want to sell this house we have to update it. Otherwise no one will buy it in its current condition. And yes that’s right, Scott and I want to move eventually (right now). Our dream has always been to move more out west. We want mountains and forests and outdoor activities and liberal-minded people! Ultimately we would like a house with a good bit of land attached to it and neighbors that we cannot see or hear. That is the dream, people.
And the truth is Ohio was never ever meant to be a permanent home and we aren’t looking for it to be one. It was a stopover. And we are totally not getting any younger (and sadly neither is Rocky) so why wait? Live the dream, right? So all this organizing and cleaning and everything you hear me talking about is so that I can someday move outta here! Plus we just have a lot of crap and it needs to go. Any suggestions on places west, PacWest, that we should put on our consideration list? Colorado sure is pretty. Portland sounds amazing. What else? Talk to me folks! Here’s the criteria:
- Must have mountains
- Plenty of outdoor activities that we don’t have to travel 50miles to get to
- Snow would be nice but not a total requirement (maybe. A little would be great, I don’t need 4ft year round)
- Liberal lifestyles
- Foodie Heaven
- Awesome suburbs or surrounding towns (we can’t live in the city but want easy access to one)
- Did I mention plenty of running and hiking trails
Is there a place like that for us?
Okay ’nuff moving talk! Eats! So it was dinner time and we had leftovers! Since it’s leftover day and all.
More lentil tacos and rice with black beans. I wasn’t terribly hungry so I only had a little bit.
But then I couldn’t resist the lentil taco filling so I had a wee scoop more! With a few (four) WF 365 brand tortilla chips. No cleanup after dinner since everything was leftovers.
Now I’m off to read a bit before heading to SF class. Hopefully class doesn’t go too long since I will probably be passing out soon.
