It was only inevitable

I have some very sad news. The apartment community that I have called home for the past 11 years is redeveloping and forcing it's residents to move. You can read the story here. I have wanted to move for some time, I really need more space but have just kept putting it off. I know so many people here and I have loved living here so much.

I found a new place. It's what I want but I'm so depressed about it. I know that I cannot come back. I know that these people who have always been a part of my daily/weekly routine will no longer be a part of my new life. My life is going to change so much.

I don't want to go, yet.

I will have to do a series of memory posts for this place. I have held so many parties here and have seen so many people come and go. I feel like a very close friend has just died.

Gosh, I'm sorry! That's horrible news. I know how much you enjoyed living there. Did you find a place close by? You were really there a long time. I've never lived anywhere for 11 years.

"I have held so many parties here and have seen so many people come and go." Yeah, myself included. ;-)

Yes, Nora, you too! In my gazebo.

I'm moving to the south side of downtown in a cute fourplex. The upper part of the fourplex is two units combined. It's about 1200 square feet. I'm getting more excited about it each time I think about it.

Hardwood floors and an humongous patio for all of my plants.

I'm drooling over your hardwood floors. That place sounds very nice! I'm sure once you settle in you'll be very happy there.

I hope so. The reality of it all is sinking in and I'm feeling overwhelmed. I've been crying this morning and last night. I've been having bad dreams. This place is deathly quiet right now. No maintenance people walking about. Nothing.

I just can't believe it's over. I have so many things that have to be done.

How soon do you have to be out? Moving after such a long time is a huge life adjustment. I'm sure you will have dreams and some anxiety.

I hate you have to make the change but, hopefully good things will come out of it.

The new apartment sounds nice. What I wouldn't give for hardwood floors sound nice.

I think I'll drive by my new place at least once every other day so that I become acclamated to the area.

We actually don't have to be out 'till June 1, but I'm not going to wait that long. I need to know where my next home is going to be. I have too much to do.
