It is not headline news when it is cold and snowy in Colorado. We are to expect such – it is, after all, winter. My daughter just called, she was on her way to a conference in a southern Colorado city, she decided to turn around and come back to Denver after having a near accident.
This photo is actually from last year. This cross is in a beautiful little outdoor prayer area at the church closest to me. I wish I could go to that church. I could walk! But I can’t. There is so much chicanery there. Things such as the lector deciding to change the BIBLE into gender neutral language. Crazy sermons e.g.. a deacon saying that if his dog can’t come to heaven with him, he would rather not go. But there is also a lovely, vibrant community, full of young families and boisterous get-togethers. I wish I had that at my little old traditional church….. Anyway, I digress.
Last night I dreamed about getting out of this house and into a condo. When I woke this morning, I did a google search for condos in my area. There are two for sale in the same community my daughter (the responsible twin) lives in. I covet her condo. She has a 2 car attached garage, walks into her house and the first thing you see out of huge window in her living room is a stellar view of the front range. Two bedrooms, two baths. All on one level. She shovels no snow, mows no grass, cleans no gutters, etc. That little community is in the background of the photo above.
Now, my daughter would rather her mom did not move quite that close to her! I am only a mile away as it is. But I would dearly love a condo just like hers! Maybe if it were on another street? With no view of her home?
Should I talk to a realtor? My plan for the new year was to call the realtor who specializes in this area and get them to come over and give me a free consultation. Like how much equity I have in this house. What it would realistically cost me to sell and buy another home. What a NICE condo would cost. Is it worth the pain involved in doing all of this?
My objectives for moving would be to lower my monthly expenses, and to get a place where I can live into old age.
Prayer, that is what I will do for now.
