Should We Stay or Should We Go?


I'm a mess right now.
Should we stay or should we go?

I'm biting my nails, sitting on pins and needles, 
got my fingers crossed, can't decide if I want 
luck to be a lady tonight or not.

Things will work out or they won't.
It's all good.

I can't focus. 
I can't think.
I certainly can't produce a post.

At least this had me laughing last night.
Hope it makes you laugh too.












Till next time ~

  1. Decisions that are so important are so hard. We knew we had to downsize, and are happy where we are, but the smaller, hugely smaller section has its limitations. I am slowly getting used to having very close neighbours. the shops,plumber, doctor and dentist are all the same ones, familiar, close by, Our home will be fine once the plumbing alterations are done. I can so understand your dilemma. Maybe travel there and stay in a motel or similar for a week or so, drive around, talk to the local people? check out the year round climate, and how easy will it be to travel from there to where you go now.Will rates, insurance, cost of living be the same, or more? And can you still write, blog, do photography or find something new altogether? Huge to even contemplate, and having been there so recently, I send you both a huge heap of love.XXXXX ( p.s. maybe get a large sheet of paper and write pros on one side,cons on the other)

    1. Thank you, Jean, for your wonderful, helpful comment! We put an offer on a house in Sun City Anthem in Henderson on the south side of Vegas. Unfortunately ours isn't the only offer. We shall see, hopefully sometime tomorrow. We have spent over two years checking out potential relocation places, including three months in a trailer in Bullhead City, Arizona, and a month in Surprise, Arizona two years in a row. I think we have the community ~ if we can just get the house. I'm on pins and needles waiting to hear. I love the house we've bid on, although we haven't lived in a single family home in 29 years. Thanks for your wonderful support. XXXXX right back at you!

    1. Tomorrow by 3 pm we'll know if we had our house contract accepted. Unfortunately we're not the only offer. I think we have our community; now we just need the house! My brainwaves are a little calmer now ~ LOL! Have a good one, my friend!

  5. Well as the Clash sang, "One day it's fine and next it's black". But after seeing your creation for the tin foil hat awards, I would change that line to "One day it's fine and next it's shiny silver.

  7. Positive and negatives to everything. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and see what comes of it. One thing to remember though, especially with moving, things will never ever go perfectly smoothly. That help? No? Hmph. Time to back back to the video?

    1. Hey, Mr. Hatt! I miss your blog, but I am so glad that you are visiting and commenting! I think we've finally decided on where to and tomorrow we should know if we get the house. I do hope so ~ It will be my favorite house ever! Nail biting time. All the best to you, Orlin, and Cassie!

    1. Hi, Martha! The decision to move is made. Now if we can just get a house. We've had offers in on two which didn't work, and that's a good thing in retrospect. Now we're on to an offer on a third house today. I would be really happy with this one if we got it. Sorry I haven't responded until now ~ been a little crazy here. I hope all is well with you!

  12. Good luck on getting the house you want. I’m not sure I’d ever be ready to live in Southern Nevada, but the northern part of the state does has its appeal.

    1. Hi, Sage. Sorry I'm just responding now. We didn't get the house, but we're hoping for another. Southern Nevada has some pretty amazing wild areas, starting with Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area and then Zion. I'll be joining the hiking club asap once we've accomplished the move. I have to admit, I am not looking forward to that! All the best to you!

    1. Hi, Baili! It's so good to hear from you! I haven't been able to blog ~ too much going on. We didn't get the house we hoped for, but we're trying to get another. It's very stressful. And yes, I am following Terry's wish. It's good to see him so happy and excited. He sacrificed a lot for me over the years. It's all good. Take care, my friend!
