Howdy Neighbour....

Last week, I was telling one of my clients that Terry and I had been thinking about moving....she of course looked surprised and said oh really...are you going to move to such and such a place....(a small town about 15 mins from here)........I replied very aggressively saying NO I would never move there...I went on and on about the reason we wanted to stay in the city...why I would never move to the town where I worked or the town in between here and there..........

Fast forward just 7 short days and guess what..........I am eating crow again........it is funny really...this happens to me ALL the time.........I say things with so much passion and then I end up doing them.....it has happened many times.....I won't get in to any details but trust me it is laughable.........

So our friends were visiting on Sat night and M just happens to be the brainchild of this certain subdivision that we are now very interested in moving too....he bought the land, developed it and as luck would have it is now the realtor selling all the lots.......of course on Sat night we all started discussing our thoughts about moving and one thing led to another and low and behold we found ourselves in this small town Sunday afternoon.....getting the tour...the lay of the land...the potential homes that we could live in and the lots that we could buy.............

And that is were a funny story could end.........but this one gets even funnier..........there were always a few things that made this town desirable....I pushed them aside because I thought city life outweighed these things...but you be the judge, here they are.....my drive would be cut in half....10 mins would be added to Terry's drive though so that just cancels itself out....our friends live there and we spend a ton of time with them.....we would be closer to my friends and family.....and the biggest most recent development is that my brother and his girlfriend are going to be moving there too, so that would be kind of fun to live in the same town as them.....so there are definitely some pros to living there....but never did I think I would be living in
L%C*N????

But as M was showing us the type of home we could build there for the $$$$ comparing that same home in the city.......well major major difference......and then we started thinking a bit more seriously....looking at the lots that were still available..........so we started to drive down a long dusty....construction packed street and I said now M which lot have my brother and Amanda picked out.........oh this one here....ok and which lots are still available.....well the one right next and the 2 lots 2 down from him.............hmmmm okay.......at first I thought my gosh there is no way my brother and I are going to want to live beside each other...that would be too weird...so okay we will grab the one at the end of the street.......but oh hmmmm there are some things we really like about the lot right beside his.........geesh........so I quickly text my bro......"how would you like to live beside your sister".......and his reply "cool that would be great"....always the cute little brother...I asked him to really chat with his girlfriend about it and really talk about it and get back to me later........

As we started thinking about it more we realized, living 2 houses away or right beside is really not that different, if anything if we are right beside we will always know our neighbour....(the other side of us is a dead end).....so that would be it, farmland behind us, brother and I'm sure soon to be sister in-law***hehe....beside us....good friends a block away.....what could be better!!!

So this is what we are thinking..........nothing is set in stone yet but hopefully by weeks end we will have made a decision....and funny enough my brother and girlfiend are actually excited to be neighbours..crazy...... I can't even believe it.........too funny who knew that my brother and I would be living side by side in #U*A%!!!!!!!!

Well all I can say to that is Holy shit - you surprised me with this one. I can't see you living there either - however, I hear what you are saying - you could build a fab house for half the price of here!!! Good luck!!
