I Owe My Soul to the Company Store


Most of you are much too young to understand what the title of this post is referencing.  🙂  I may not owe my soul to the Company Store, but before it’s done, I’ll owe it to Home Depot!  hee hee!

On the Road Again


Movin’, movin’, movin’!  In case you’ve noticed, I’ve been rather quiet here lately.  I’m pre-occupied.  I am just starting the process of looking for a house to buy.  So my attention has been focused on that.

I know from past experience that buying OR selling a house, either one, can be very stressful.  I’m hoping I won’t go too crazy with the process.  🙂

I’ve found, what I think is an awesome Real Estate agent.  She seems to be very aggressive.

I’ve moved many, many times in my life.  What I am looking at will be my last home purchase, I hope.  A place to retire.  I’m pretty excited about the whole thing.

I’ve looked at just a few places so far.  Nothing that works.  But I should see a few more this week.  I will keep you posted on my new adventure!

Thanks for playing!  ❤ Penny
