Move!

Sometime in the next two to four weeks we will be moving. Our lease for the condo is up tomorrow (15th) and a friend of ours that has been renting a house is moving to D.C., so we're going to takeover the house.

I hate moving, but I'm excited about this one. The house has a fenced back yard which is FANTASTIC for Buster, and the house itself is very nice - the whole front room area is painted a dark red (which I love) and feels very open and modern. The only downsides are that there is only one bathroom (the condo has 2.5) and a very small kitchen. And no pool.

The condo is about 10 blocks from my work, and on the same street. The house is three streets behind the store and 2 blocks over. I won't have to tackle ANY main drag traffic to get there!

I suppose I'll live without the pool, I'll just have to go to the beach more often!

We'll most likely be in Key West for another year at least, unless something unexpected happens in Scott's job field and we are facilitated a move that is worth it. When that happens I would like to drive, as I enjoyed the cross-country trip before, but Scott wants to fly us and all the animals.

I'm hoping to rent a big Suburban or Van and just toss everyone in it.

Do people really have pools in Florida? Isn't it all kinds of beachy wet down there?
Are you skinny dippers? Is that why? (Hey! I don't judge!)

ReesePie said...

I would skinny dip, but there are too many weirdos here...

Yes, a lot of people have pools. Key West isn't actually very beachy, so it's nice to have a pool - much more convenient.

ANOTHER YEAR!!!

:(

Well...at least the house has some advantages to it.

I wish I had a nice secluded pool....skinny dipping is nice..:)

What??? You mean you're going to get married in Oregon ... and then go back to Key West????

I'm devastated.

ReesePie said...

Yes... did you think when we got married we were moving back at the same time? Sorry to disillusion you...

And as of right now we don't even know if we're getting the house anymore because our friend that is moving may not move.

Grrr.

Why don't you just start RIGHT NOW looking for jobs on this side of the continent!! You could be back in Portland by Christmas...

ReesePie said...

Because we're not READY to be back in Portland by Christmas, and it's not "that easy" unless Scott takes a job that pays about half what he's making now...

Roxy said...

"....I'm dreaming of a white Christmas....".....:D

ReesePie said...

I have to stay here for Christmas... it's a mandate from my bosses.

We're doing CP/WW for Thanksgiving though...

What's with this flaky-ass friend?

ReesePie said...

He had his interview in DC and isn't as excited about the job anymore, AND he's figuring out that KW is a fun place to live.

I'd be afraid to fly with the animals. I'd want to drive cross country too.

Sona said...

Do you really have a boxer?

ReesePie said...

Yes!! His name is Buster and he's FABULOUS.
