Homeless-Kind Of

So yeah it has been a very looooonng time since the last post. Right about that time Mr. P & P found out we were being transferred to California. As if things couldn't have gotten more nutty in our household! We scrambled to get the house in shape to list it and it sold in four minutes. No exaggeration. The morning the first showing was scheduled, I was crying walking out the door with babies and dirty laundry because we ran out of time to finish cleaning. Mr. P&P was behind me wiping the front door with Windex when the first couple to see the house came up the walk. I took the babes next door and a few minutes later, he came over (still holding the glass cleaner) and said they offered us cash. Done. So here we are in temporary housing in sunny southern California. Looking for a house. How do all you Californians do this? I mean like houses out here are a bazillion dollars!!!! We have a camper so we had to drive out from Michigan. Was NOT looking forward to that with the twins, but they were super. We did take the most direct route which wasn't that pretty until we hit Utah. We drove through Zion and OMG. I don't think my mouth closed the entire time. Almost cried I did it was so spectacular! If you were there at the same time, I was the crazy lady holding the camera out the window snap snap snapping!!!!! It will be months before I can bead or paint or anything again. Not that I had a whole lot of time before all this. But my stash is somewhere in storage. So we need to find that bazillion dollar house like FAST!!!


  1. Oh my! Miss Tari! I had no idea what you have been dealing with. That is quite an adventure that you have set out on. Congratulations on selling your house at the right price in 4 minutes. Mine took over a year to sell so that is indeed a blessing. I am wishing that you find the castle that is perfect for you and your wee ones (even if it is not a bazillion dollars!). Enjoy the day.

  2. Goodness what a wild ride! I can't imagine all the different emotions that are circling through you right now.

    We've been to many beautiful places in Utah but never Zion. It's one of the places on my 'must see' list.

    Best of luck in finding that perfect home!

  3. So much change but so good you get your house sold so quickly. Still, it must be so very hard to leave it behind and have to look for a new one. Good luck with it all.

  4. Wow! How exciting! Congrats on your successful home sale!! I cannot imagine having to move so quickly! I wish you the best of luck in finding your home...for the right price, of course!

  5. Oh my...congratulations on such a quick sale! I understand somewhat as our house sold and we had to be out in six weeks, after living there for 20 years. We quickly moved into a rental for a year while our new home was being renovated...

    I learned to find the joy as best I is what it is!

    Good luck finding the new home for your family!

  6. I heard you found a new chateau to call home! Can't wait to hear about your new adventures!
