but it's not writer's block, she says.I am  still here. I have recently been hit with the I can’t settle myself down to write anything. I can’t even say it is  writer’s block, it’s just I am over the moon with ecstatic happiness on FINALLY owning our own home. My husband and I have finally bought a house, and I have been literally writing one blog post after another in my head, while I have been so frantically busy getting work done around our 57 year old home, I can’t get myself to sit down and write.

I guess you could call it HOME OWNER’S WRITER’S BLOCK. I waited 30 years to own our own home, and we lived in one crappy apartment after another, saving our money buying an 80 year old home, only to be completely screwed over to give up our home for a major loss. So after paying our house off that we no longer owned; paying off the credit card debt we accrued fixing up major issues we had by owning that house. WE put in a completely new sewer that went under the house, in the long narrow driveway, all the way across the street. (Which btw, the town would not help pay for.)

Everything imaginable went wrong with owning this home. We thought the neighborhood was a safe one to raise kids, considering I was 7 months pregnant when we moved in, with a church across the street and a small school next door. We were completely wrong. Looks can be deceiving!

After selling the house for less than we paid for it, then paying off accruing debt for numerous years. living in one crappy apartment after another and raising two children to adulthood, we made a new start and bought a house. We took the leap of faith.

So, I have been seriously busy  working on our new/old home, doing tons of yard work—OWWW!, and fitting in time to see my hubby every day. I’ve been so excited, I really can’t stand it. I jump out of bed every morning ready to run outside and cut down weeds, put down mulch and plan a garden for the first time in my life.

I feel like a new person! Join in my journey to happiness and a newfound love of life! Momzinga.com,
