Soon I’ll be out looking for a new place to live. A new place that I can put my mark on. Some place that I make the final decisions on how it’s decorated. Where the clutter lives (hopefully in the trash). Somewhere that I can be happy when I come home from work.
At this point I don’t care much if I have to put some work into where I’ll be living. I just know that I need a roof over my head and my boy.
I have to say that I’m looking forward to it. I know that it will be a lot of hard work. I know that in the end I’ll be a stronger and smarter person for it.
I didn’t know that I would be making this change so soon. As far as I knew I was going to be staying with the “marital” home until it could be sold. But if he wants to buy me out that’s perfectly fine with me. The scary part is that it is cheaper to buy a house still then it is to rent. I’ve looked into getting a place to rent and they can be $650+ in the area that I’m looking at. For a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment!
So why would I want to rent when I can buy a house with a mortgage payment of $200 less than that? (What I find funny is the word “mortgage.” It’s root word means death.)
In this new place that I will eventually get it’s like starting over fresh. If something doesn’t have a place I can get rid of it somehow. If I sell it in a yard sale, eBay, or donate it. Whatever happens I get to say if it comes into the house. I’ll all ready be getting rid of stuff while I’m packing. Check out my eBay items if you are interested in books and dvd’s.
Now I just need to look at ways to store the books and dvd’s that I’m going to keep…
