Downsize to a condo, part 2.

Another weekend of prepping my sweet home for sale.  We've decided to expedite our listing, hitting the market a week earlier to try and beat out the mortgage changes coming July9th.  I'm hoping to have everything ready by next Monday.

But, I have to admit, I already miss my house.   The photo below captures several things that I must give up to move into a condo.  1.) My hammocks!  I redid the entire backyard with hammocks in mind.  I have a pergola with two hammock locations.  Mind you, I'm almost always too busy to rest in them.  Hopefully, once in a condo, I can spend more time in Thailand, the ultimate hammock rest spot.  2.) The hot tub...  There is no bad time of day for a soak.  Easily the hardest thing we have to give up.  There is a puny tub in the condo we plan to buy.  Hopefully, we can remove it and put in a big soaker.  Still researching this with the strata council.  3.) My veggie gardens...  Is there anything better than fresh picked strawberries, potatoes, green beans, or kale from your backyard garden.  Nope.  

Not in this photo, but equally missed, are my back deck and BBQ!  No BBQ'a allowed at the condo.  What?!  I BBQ all year round.  Not sure how I'm going to cope with this.  I guess it's a healthy move, less charred food.  Sigh...


This week is the final push to get everything ready.  Expect to see my very own sweet home for sale on this site next week. K
