It’s official, we are taking the plunge into real-estate together! The condo is for sale as of tonight and we are looking at a few larger, 2 bedroom place just across the street.
This is a bittersweet time for me. This condo is simply lovely. This is where I healed from my divorce and feelings of being abandoned. This is where I turned what was such as sad, lonely looking place into a cozy, warm home that makes me smile each day. This is the first place I ever had that was just mine. This is the first place I ever lived happily alone. This is where I found the old Jenny, the Jenny that was lost over many years. This is where Darryl picked me up for dinner one night and noticed I was calm--- at last.
It is a beautiful place with a lovely balcony overlooking a courtyard garden and fountain. Birds sit on my balcony ledge and squirrels dig in my pots. There is a sunny window over the kitchen sink and room for hundreds of books. But now I am a we- we are we. And we need a tad more room.
I prepped liked crazy the last two weeks. I scrubbed, painted, caulked, cleaned, washed and staged. And now, well, all I can do is wait. We cannot buy a new place until we have an offer on this one; it’s just how things are done now. I do not know where we will be for who knows what will be for sale when this place sells.
I have to let it go and relax. I cannot do anything at this point to make it sell faster. I cannot make the perfect new place appear on the market at the exact time this place sells. I have to let go and relax….
Last night I did anything but- I panicked, I was anxious; I fought for sleep.
Tonight I am getting a massage- it was already booked! Lucky me. And then I am turning in early with a book.
It is time to let go so this lovely home can be someone else’s safe haven. It’s the end of a big chapter in my life and the beginning of an even better one.
