My new backyard
Well, allrighty then. It's a done deal. We're moving. GAH! EEK! SQUEEE! BARF! YAY! Mixed emotions, who?
We have decided to go with Option No. 3, which has always been our first choice, but I got sidetracked. We're renting a three bedroom townhouse at Northwynd Condominiums, on the Columbia River. Or, more accurately, on the Renaissance Trail along the Columbia River.
The townhouse is furnished, but the lovely older couple who own it are willing to pull some things out. And the lovely couple that are renting our house are leaving most of their furniture in their house (long story) and would love to use most of our furniture. So basically we'll leave our house almost "as is" and come back to it after this adventure with our stuff intact. How crazy is this whole thing?
We are moving in the weekend of May 22. Which gives me eight weeks to pack up a house that we've lived in since 1997. I am equal measures of excited and overwhelmed and bouncing between pack and save everything and toss and burn everything. I'm hoping that my friend zinfandel will help me find a good middle ground.
As for this holiday weekend, will we be spending it sorting and packing? Why no, we won't. Of course not. We're spending tonight at a dance event with Carlie (where she will be doing a *spotlight* cha cha, video tba). Tomorrow we're heading to the coast to enjoy the predicted 30 degree bluster and rain by bunkering down with the girls for an all day Glee marathon. Sunday we're having an Easter brunch in Astoria and then heading home.
Happy Easter, bloggy friends!
PS: Sometime next week I will hit my 800th post (yikes) and have yet to come up with a fabulous idea to mark this momentous occasion. Ideas?
