Oh, my heart aches sometimes..... All my life I wanted
an old house to nurture and dress up. I ' ve dreamed of it
since I was a little girl.
I found one in 2008 and when home prices went down
we could finally afford this OLD 1907 home to fix upfor our retirement home. It was a dream come true!
I truly love the house!
But buying it may not have been such a good idea.
1. It took all our money to buy it and repair it!
No money left for fun or for travel.
2. I'm still working a five hour drive away!
So, I have only spent twelve days in the house in 2011.
3. Our sons can't visit us. One lives 250 miles away and
the other son lives 500 miles away!
How our heart aches ...
4. To keep the house, we have to pay to keep the
utilities on and taxes and yard upkeep, etc.
But...we love the house. We absolutely love it!
I don't know what we are going to do. Twelve days is not
very much time to spend in your dream home.
It's just not practical.
And how can I ever sell my beloved blue cottage?
Can't keep both houses. Oh my heart is torn....
What would you do?
