|I'm going to miss this place!|
About 6 weeks ago Kyle and I sold our house we had for 15 years. This house has so much history. It is where Tattered Angels started and Glimmer Mist was created. I also had a portrait studio that I ran out of our home for 5 years. Prior to the portrait studio in the house we built, developed and I operated Senger Studio, a 4 thousand square foot Portrait Studio. Kyle ran our custom Photo Lab called Photos Plus, that developed and processed all the studio work and more. After about 10 years we sold the Photo Lab and moved the studio into our house... needless to say we accumulated a LOT of stuff. As most people know the longer you are in one spot the more you have collected. Well that is an understatement for Kyle and I. Kyle took on most of the sorting and storage of the house, bless his heart it seemed like it took forever to get the house cleaned out. Three kids, a divorce and several business’s later we managed.WHEW!!!
So now I have a truly great story to tell about a move my kids and I are embarking on. My time lately has been spent getting my kids and home ready for a big move. Its been 2 years since I divorced and moved in to a beautiful condo that had fit the kids and I perfectly. It was only 2 minutes from the house we were in for 15 years and no changing schools for the kids. When I was running Tattered Angels I did not have time to take care of anything, especially a yard, snow removal or maintenance. Our condo has been a wonderful home to us.
FYI… During the same time of moving out of the house I was working with Canvas Corp and the changing hands of Tattered Angels. I wont even get into the fact we were also shipping for Winter CHA and sorting personal property, Scrapbook supplies, desks, photography studio equipment and such out of the Tattered Angels 11 thousand square foot warehouse. Luckily the Canvas team and the Tattered Angels crew did an amazing job packing and shipping the Tattered warehouse for its travels to Arkansas. Let me tell you this was not an easy project. That warehouse was truly packed, every inch! As my luck would have it I, due to the stress of everything I'm sure , got sick with the Flu, pneumonia and laryngitis, all at the same time! Who gets this sick??? The doctors mentioned putting me in the hospital but I just could not let that happen during such a crazy time of my life.
Ok so back to the move…..
So as fate would have it about 6 weeks ago Kyle and I had a buyer for our house. During the signing of the contract my Realtor mentioned that the couple buying our home was planning on giving it a face lift and put it up for rent. I had just gotten a letter in the mail asking if I had planed to renew my lease for another year. Hmm..wheels turning... I mentioned to my realtor I might be interested in renting back my home. Soon after I was corresponding with the new home owner and discussing the possibility of moving back in. I brought up the move to the kids and they were all in. I gave them the choice to move or not. If they did choose to move they had to help me with the packing every step of the way. As we get closer to moving day we are getting more and more excited about moving back into our old rooms, having more space, being next door to best friends and across the street to the elementary and middle schools again.
Friday, the 13th, is the beginning of the big move. I would like to compare this big move to a new father. Men tend to not to get excited about having a baby for the first time UNTIL you get closer to delivery, or even after the baby is born. My kids had better start realizing the delivery of the new house is upon us.... LOL I need more help!!!
