A to Z Blog Challenge 2015 – House or Home

I recently sold my home on the fifth day it was listed. The closing will be in a couple of weeks. My plan was to purchase my dream home but there was not enough time to find the perfect home for me. I don’t want to settle for a house because I need one. I want to purchase one because I love it.

When I was out visiting houses I never saw one that spoke to me and made me fall in love. I came to the conclusion that now is not the time to spend that much money on something I will hate when I get up the next morning and be stuck hating it for the next five years or so.

So where am I going to live? I am moving into a beautiful apartment for now. I’m taking time off from having to cut grass, plant flowers, and treat weeds. Someone else is maintaining the yard I get to enjoy. I can call the maintenance man if there is a need and I don’t have to pay for it.

I’ve lived in homes for the last twenty years taking care of all of the homeowner duties. For the next year I’ll be on a break from that. I will focus on my passions.

Maybe by next year I’ll find my dream home or build it.

I'm an unconventional writer who never knows how the project is going to turn out until it's finished. The project could be an article, short story, poetry or photography. For me that's the blessing of creativity. Come along with me as we embark on an adventure. Enjoy the ride.
