I Guess It's Goodbye!

Since we've moved here I held onto some weird hope that somehow we'd be able to transfer back to Frederick. Tony's work is opening a rocky mountain region and the regional office was to be located in Denver. We sold our house back to his work, and it had not sold in the year that we had been here. Every so often, I would go online and look at our house, take the virtual tour, and wish maybe we would be able to go back and buy it. Reality would set in and I thought probably not, then I would be depressed for a day or two. I am so weird, but I loved that home. Strange things like I had a set of bookcases built in with cupboards. I had these baskets I bought and put in them it. It was such a great place to hide kiddie toys! I chose the carpet color cause it was beautiful and you couldn't see any stains. nothing! I had the island expanded to fit extra kids at the counter when I was cooking. I built this home for my family. For my kids to grow up here.For Tony and I to grow old in. The spiral staircase,I'd imagine Rachelle on prom night coming down it.The video shows how awesome the stairs were! Hmm I think I was way too emotionally attached to this home! My mother in law has reminded me it was only a house and I can create a home anywhere... Well, tonight I went online to look at my home and found it has sold finally!! I feel a little sick about it. So,I suppose this is a good thing. No more imagining I am going back. Time for reality.Time to make my house feel like a home. We're where we are supposed to be for now! Strange too...I can't find any of my pictures of our old home except for these. Hmm, maybe a blessing so I can't dwell on it anymore. I'm movin on.......

Oh Lauri, it is so beautiful! I'm sorry you had to sell it, but I am so glad you guys are here! Isn't it funny how emotionally attached we get? Maybe not so funny after all.

I am with you on the house thing. I use to look at the photos online of my house too. It made me sick when I had to fly back to CA, meet the buyer, and spend my last week forever in that house. The worst was when her interior decorator came in and started talking about the changes they were going to make. From that point on, I knew it would never be my home again. Awful feeling. I hope things will start to feel like home for you now.

I'm sorry to hear your house sold! Its hard to let go of a place you loved! Hang in there! Maybe this house you are in now will start feeling more like a home to you! :)

Yes, but you can always hold onto hope about moving back, right? :-)

Well, we are glad to have you here! It is an absolutely beautiful home, and I can see why it was so hard for you to leave it. Because you planned it! You can't beat that. SO plan one down here that you love. Close to me so you don't have scorpions;)

nice spiral staircase....i love that you put the video on so all could see...it is hard to leave something we loved, although it is better knowing we are at the right place at the right time.
