First off, I have to tell you that I LOVE the place I live in now.
It is cozy, at times a little too small, the kitchen, while no bigger than a postage stamp is GORGEOUS. (The following are where I live now. The gallery (group) is where I will be going – they have to move all that stuff out – including the elk head!)
I have an incredible view, I have absolute privacy.
I’m at 3000 ft, and had a great garden this past year, as some of you know.
But, I won’t leave the house unless I absolutely have to. I spends days and days and days on the internet. I have no friends and no family that are local to me. If I hurt myself and couldn’t get to a phone, no one would know for a very long time. While I love the privacy, the isolation has always been a concern.
So, when I least expected it, things changed. I was offered a place to live that is closer to family, closer to a major city and much less isolated. The owners of the new place know of my predicament and have offered me a rent rate of almost half of what I pay now.
Aside from the fact that the thought of moving again, in a little over year, makes me want to crawl the walls I can’t find a real good reason not to go. Except one, I LOVE MY LANDLORDS WITH ALL MY HEART.
Last week I visited the new place and met the owners. Met a lot of people in town and found myself just marveling at being back in civilization. It is a mere 400 ft higher in elevation, but on a more northern side of the mountain range – much, much more snow.
Here are some pics of the new place:
I haven’t made my decision yet, I guess I’m waiting for some kind of miracle to occur – like a job. But I will have to soon, because that is the only fair thing to do. I’m nervous about moving in the winter because my snow driving skill are non-existent. It would of course be easier to move in June or something, but the money I would spend to stay for convenience is too much.
