Homeward Bound....I wish I was homeward bound....




I don't know how to start writing tonite. I don't know if I even remember how to write. My mind is so fractured and full and spilling over. I can hardly keep a cohesive thought in my head. My focus is non-existent. My daughter-in-law and I flew back to Detroit last Thursday and spent 3 whirlwind days house hunting with Bill the Real Estate Guy. A wonderful man who was so friendly, so funny, and so charming. He and I got along like a house afire and my d-i-l spent a lot of time in the back seat laughing at us. She texted my daughter, "I never knew your mom was so goofy!" My daughter texted back, "Yup. This is what I grew up with." Do I take that as an insult or a compliment?! Haha! Actually, the two of us had a great time together. I think we viewed something like 30 houses? But we finally found two that we like, within a mile of each other and only about 10 minutes from work for everyone. Dear Hubby and I are putting in an offer on Monday and we'll see where it goes. He told me as he was leaving for work that Thursday morning, "I hope you find the house of your dreams back there. You deserve it." No wonder I love the man. As long as he has a room to tinker in and to put all his hunting gear and trophies....which he will...and a place in the yard to target shoot with his longbow...which he will... he doesn't care about any of the other details. He told me wherever we've lived in these 36 years together I've always made it home...and he knows I'll do the same with this one as well.

This is the house I found. This is the house I love. This, I hope, will become home.

Aw, how sweet that your man knows you know how to make a home. I'm certain this one will be filled with love. Take good care as you make this change. Life is certainly filled with adventure, isn't it?

I know it will be a relief to you to actually secure a home and know exactly where you're going. It's the not knowing about any situation that drives me crazy. Of course, once you do have your new house, you're going to be anxious to move and get the whole ordeal over with.

Good luck with the offer. I will be sending you good wishes tomorrow! *fingers crossed*

Congratulations on the house-hunting success. I hope your offer will be accepted.

Did d-i-l find a place, too?

I still can't get over that all this is happening with you and your family!!! It's a lovely house and I hope that you will be able to make it "home" soon.

Prayers and best wishes as you work through all the details. House has a cozy look that says "Make me your home."

I'll be waiting to hear when you have signed on the dotted line!

The house reminds me of one of my childhood homes. I know you an Hubby will be happy together living there. :)
