I'm a traveling gypsy....

And this is how this traveling gypsy gets around. Lol!

So, recently I mentioned I had some other changes that were going to be happening. Well, I am moving again! Okay, really it's not what you think. I'm still in the same condo complex but I am moving to the townhouse across from me! Lol! I mean literally, the garages are across from each other. I am making this change because I decided I am paying too much for rent right now. The condo I am in is the most desired floor plan and, well, all around the most desired condo in the complex. I LOVE the complex I am in...not sure if I've mentioned that. It's gated, so I feel safe, it's quiet and trees everywhere! So, this is going to sound funny but I am now moving into a three story townhouse which is bigger than the condo I am in but much cheaper. I just won't have as many windows and not as much of a view. That's okay though, I would rather start saving more money for a house in the future. :) I know Quincy and Emma will have tons of room to run now. Two sets of stairs...the first floor is the garage, second is the living room, dining room and kitchen and one bathroom, and the third are the two bedrooms and two more bathrooms.

Here's the thing and the reason I haven't been posting as much lately, besides the cat fiasco. :( I'm cleaning and getting ready for the short move across the street because it all has to happen mid December. Terrible time, I know but they couldn't hold this townhouse longer than 30 days for had to have it. Talk about stressful. A move in between the holidays. Nice going, Michelle. Oh well, I can think of worst things, right?

Anyhow, hope you guys had a wonderful weekend! Kitties are still doing fine. Mocha is hanging in there, a bit cranky but eating and drinking a lot. I'm not sure if she will be the same kitty after this but she is still with me and, for that, I am happy.

Moves whether they're across the street or across the country are still stressful!!! And alot of work and exhausting. When we moved to Sea Cottage it was only a 10minute drive from our other cottage, but actually across city lines, putting us in a new city. It was all of the above and took me 3 months to recover from! Hopefully yours will be easier. It could be alot of fun during the holidays....only please don't snow! I will understand why you may not be around Blogville much and will look forward to seeing the new place:O)

i think its a sweet deal.. more room but cheaper rent!!

whoo-hoo... plus more running room for the kitties..

Dawn said...

that traveling gypsy reminds me of the one in the Wizard of Oz. How I loved his little place.
good luck with the move. Yes stressful but yes it will be all over soon. Take care of those sweet kitties!

Your new apartment sounds just wonderful. Won't the fur babies have fun! Also glad to hear everyone is feeling better. Have a great Thanksgiving! HUGS, KATHLEEN

Coastal Sisters said...

I am so sorry you have to move during the holidays! Ughhhhh! If I lived closer I would come and help you pack up and help you move. Thank heavens you are moving just across the street though.

I am SO glad that the babies are doing better :)

Chatelaine said...

Wow, another move? We both moved last year around the same time.

I still have boxes I haven't unpacked.

Sounds like you're getting a great deal and by now you are a pro at moving. Good luck.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Lisa said...

Happy Thanksgiving, Michelle! I'm sure all will go well with your move. It seems like a wise choice to me.

Dustjacket Attic said...

Hi honey, wow you have had so much on lately. Really hope your move goes well and the cats take to the new house. I'm sure they will, mine has been great with our moves.

So relieved they are all feeling so much better, especially poor Mocha.

Had to look at the clip of Quincy again. Love him.

Take care honey, try and take it easy.

Allison said...

Best wishes on your move--I feel for you as I am in the same boat! We are moving 40 minutes north on Dec. 5th!!! Crazy--but it's a great old craftsman-style home. Looking forward to Christmas in it. Best to you--saving money sounds like a good plan. Happy Thanksgiving!

JennyMac said...

Good luck with the move...whole new beginnings!

I'm strolling in to catch up and especially to wish you and your (furry) loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving!
It's such a wonderful time to stop and reflect on all those we cherish and are truly grateful for.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to visit and leave feeling inspired!

Even though our Thanksgiving is very small in number, with hubby and son (we don't count the cat cause she doesn't like turkey). We don't scrimp on the menu...from appetizers to desserts with several carb loaded dishes in between! We will be enjoying tryptophan playoffs too!

Sweet Holiday wishes,

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

P.S. You've probably got the kitties back to feelin' better...but here is a suggestion...My kitty has had a bit of trouble with diarrhea, so I was instructed to give her plain yogurt. There's something in the yogurt that helps alleviate the problem. I hope this can help.

Sweet wishes,

Ah, here's the moving post! =) So glad you can find a place in the same complex for cheaper! Congrats!!

Love to you and the sweetest kitties!

Patiently waiting,
