Loc: settling in the USA again
we need to sell our house. we haven't lived in it for over 15 years - ever since we started working overseas - except for brief periods on visits. and being long-distance, absentee landlords is not working. it will reduce the stress level considerably. but getting it ready to show is also stressful. we are nearly there - have done lots of painting, fixing and pruning in the past couple weeks.

it was a good place to live - small town, big old rambling house with character, huge yard, lots of trees... i have many great memories there. i hope my kids do too. i tried to create for them the kind of safe environment to grow up in that i never had.

i am feeling a bit nostalgic - sort of sad - but with a warm glow associated with it. hope some other family finds it, buys it (quickly - please God!) and loves it too.

we list it this weekend.
i am exhausted.
LEE

I'm buying your house LEE wink , it sounds like wonderful place.
I hope you'll find buyer quickly.

I'm sensitive to nostalgia and could be lost in memories but that doesn't mean to be close toward new challenges. When one chapter is over, next is opening.
I wish you all best!
