On December 19, 2016, we officially moved out of our 2,200 sq ft, 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom, 3.5-car garage, custom built home….into a 700 sq ft, 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom, no garage, apartment. Packing had set us into a permanent state of panic, we had so much stuff and absolutely no where to put it. The apartment is nice, it’s new and there’s thankfully not a lot of people living here yet, but it’s a serious adjustment for two people and two large dogs.
When we announced our move from Sandusky to Columbus, many people questioned us — “But why?’, “Isn’t this your home? You love Sandusky!” and “But you just built that house!”
We wanted a new adventure and to pursue better opportunities. We shouldn’t be blamed for that.I do love Sandusky, and I promise it will always have a special place in my heart, but we love Columbus, too. We built the house a little over two years ago because we wanted somewhere to live and the pickin’s were slim, but we knew we wouldn’t stay there long, so we built it specifically for resale. I surprisingly felt no attachments to it the last time I left. Home will always be where we all are together.
Columbus is absolutely wonderful and it’s going to be a great place for us. The future holds so many options. While living in an apartment is less than ideal and it might be a little tough sometimes with an active dog and an old dog and we’re all a little bored and lonely time to time, I don’t regret a minute of our decision. It’s all going to be just fine. We’re all going to be alright.
Move-in day: Pups are happy wherever they are with us 🙂
