MA - Part Two, The Move

If you didn't read yesterday's post, Multitasker's Anonymous, you should do so first, before reading part two.

In truth, the move happened a year ago. And believe it or not, the intention of the move really was to simplify our life.

Sell your house. Move your family to a new town. Simplify. Yeah, okay Liv.

I suppose you're thinking we're quart low on brain juice, but we actually both hold master's degrees. Here was the plan:

Sell the cabin, sell the house, move to a lake close-by to eliminate the running around on weekends. See? There really was method to our madness.

Problem was, the only decent lake was two towns away. No big deal, we'll commute. Oh, and the house we bought needed some work. Well, about $50K in work. So we did the work, went without TV, went without sleep, endured a 10-inch rainfall that flooded our basement during the "no-roof" stage, and oh - did I mention we lived there during all of this?

But we survived and the house is great. It's summer and we're enjoying the lake and beautiful view and the kids love it.

And now hubby may get a new job.

So we'll have to move.
