Chernobog top by WDWParksGal

Well, we have to move after living in our house since May of 1978. Even though over the years we've given away a load of stuff, managed to throw away tons of stuff, made sure extra prizes (hubby was in fundraising for decades for schools and organizations and purchased merchandise for incentives) were donated to charities and given out at Halloween to Trick-or-Treaters, there are many things that still have to be sorted, thrown out, packed and moved 170 miles away. My nerves aren't good and am feeling overwhelmed. The house isn't large, just 1000 square feet with a basement and one-car garage, but every inch of space has been used over the years.

Classy Rose Divider by AudraMBlackburnsArt

Hubby and I are moving to a nice apartment overlooking a golf course my brother owns. The building was built by my father some decades ago, and when he passed on my brother eventually purchased it from the trust (since it overlooks his golf course and was built on his land). Thankfully. At any rate, he will have a two-bedroom, two-bath apartment ready for us to move into next month. The apartment is on the second floor with a lot of stairs (lower level is nearly two stories ~ there are outdoor steps on the side, as well as steps located between the garage for the three apartments that are located on the second level and two-car garage for the main-level house ~ the studio by the main house doesn't have a garage ~ there is a side-entrance from the inside stairs). Once in the apartment, however, everything is on one floor, which will be a lot better for me to get around in. The washer and dryer will be in the hallway, so I won't have to drag laundry down three sets of stairs through the office and into the laundry area. Anyone with mobility issues will understand the convenience.

The double-front door goes out into a shared-porch with the other two apartments on either end, and there is a cover over a good part of the porch. There is a nice railing for flower boxes and plenty of room for an outdoor table/chair set.

Some of my stock pictures posted at WDWParksGal-Stock ~ views of the porch, the extra parking area and pond and of the view of the golf course itself from the porch:

Tuxedo Kitty Divider by IridescentStardust

We found a home for one of the four kitties and need to find a home for one of the others. As it is now, we would like to keep the two brothers, Ying and Yang, I mean CC and Thunder, since they are such buddies, so that means we need to find a good home for Misty, who prefers being alone and would be a good, single kitty in a house or apartment. Honestly, we aren't sure where we can put a litter box or how big a mess it will be (currently have a room just for the kitties' litter boxes) or how well they will adjust to apartment living, but for now we'll see how the kitties deal in the new environment.

It will be different living in another place after so many decades. At least we will be closer to several relatives, since it has become more difficult to travel these last several years.

This will sound weird and probably a little crazy, but I almost feel like I'm "abandoning" my son who passed away in 2001. He loved living in the area and attended college in Youngstown. He will always be missed no matter where I live.

He was married in the Gazebo below and part of his ashes were scattered in the trees right behind the Gazebo in Mill Creek Park:

Beneath the Sun by AreteEirene  Tina at the Bay Saying Goodbye by WDWParksGal  In His MemoryTuesday, April 10, 2001
Two weeks ago today, in a rather abrupt but sympathetic manner, we found out that our son, Chris, age twenty-five, a YSU student and employee in the management office at YSU, a caring and loving and, perhaps, too compassionate of a man, was dead. After waiting for his return home for several days and calling and emailing friends who may have known his whereabouts and after filing a missing person’s report with the local police department, our worse fears were realized. The shock was devastating and has taken a toll on our family and those who care about us. This note is to thank all those who responded to our time of need in ways that may never be truly expressed but none-the-less appreciated and held close to our hearts.
At this time, however, we would like to celebrate the life that Chris had. He had his share of trials and tribulations like we all do, illnesses, allergies and troubles, but he so loved his friends, family and co-workers that he did his be

In the meantime, I don't know how often I'll be on DA and when we move have no idea how long it will take to get Internet Service again. When Tina moved twice having to use the same company for Internet, each time it took at least ten days to get connected. During that time I'll have to stay as connected as I possibly can using my phone.

So, if there is a lag on answering comments or accepting submissions in the plethora of groups I help admin you'll know why. I'm already behind on my Notification Center and it is getting worse day by day, as I'm not logging in as often as I'd like to. So, by the time I'm moved and unpacked and finally get service again, I have NO idea how far behind I'll be.
