Life is filled with changes, challenges. Some good, some not so much. During the winter, my mojo went missing. I felt tired, sluggish. A nasty virus attacked me, and then I was diagnosed with a lung disease, that causes me to be winded. I can't go like a house on fire anymore. But, I can still GO, and I'm learning my limitations and how to live with chronic illness.
The end of February, my husband and I decided it is time to sell our home of 28 years and move from the island where we live to the mainland. Although we both think of ourselves as young as the day we married, we are not. Health issues are ever present. Our interests have changed through the years, and our life is not here anymore. We want to be closer to our little family, not so remote and isolated. We want to make the move together, while we're both able to enjoy making a new home for ourselves. Some people wait too long, get too old.
Our home sold fast-caught us off guard. Then the hunt for another house. We found a sweet ranch in a great location. Things are moving quickly now. We have closed on our current home, and closing on the new one next week. Packing. One thing on our priority was a place for my sewing room and husband's workshop. There is a large family room/Florida room on the back of the house--about 15x40 which will become our play rooms. Windows ceiling to floor all the way around. Love.
I've been scouring Pinterest for sewing room ideas. I'm taking my cutting table/cabinet and pattern cabinet with me. I'll have another counter-top/cabinets built. Lots of decisions to make. Someday, I'll be in the sewing room again, happy and content. Until then, I'll be reading your stories.
I'll be back.
