TBT – throw back thursday – moving day!

I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve had to say that to my children!  From the time they were born until about 6 years ago to be honest.  It got so bad that one day when we were moving, Alyssa looked at me and said, “I guess we have to start over again” – broke my heart.  You don’t want to put your kids through that.  It was that time that I was able to secure employment, a great house to rent, and in a great neighborhood.  We stayed there for 4 years – our longest rental – until he sold the house on us.  That was rough.  I guess that’s the chance you take when you rent – it can be ripped out from under you.  The kids got a little excited knowing we’d be taking on a new adventure … we just didn’t know where … we stayed with my mother for a bit (I had just met John a few months prior to knowing we had to move), and then John and I decided to buy a house, yes together.  I really didn’t want to have to move my kids so finding a rental was not an option … besides, with 4 kids it would have been WAY too expensive.

Alyssa just moved into her 2nd apartment yesterday!  I am SO happy for her!  She’s finishing college in August and the apartment she was in was in a basement like place – dark, dreary and depressing!  This new one she found is bright and open and she’ll have a roommate!  She just looks SO much happier – or is it just the rush of someplace new?  I think it’s the apartment – the basement one she has a view of the ground .. her new one … a great view of Halifax!  You can’t beat that view!
