Dream house – long term plan

I’m not sure how far away it has to be to count as long term…

All I know is that 3 years from now, we are planning to be ready to move into our dream house.

Our dream house will be the place where all 3 of us will have private / hobby space as well as enough common room to be able to live comfortably.

I read this recently:

This has reinforced my belief that not only we need to plan for all of this but we need to live comfortably and continue to grow as a family and has individuals.

So here I am, reworking our family budget to pay off debts and save some money while at the same time listing all the little things we can fix around the house to slowly make it ready to sell in 3 years.

So, we now have a board we pictures of things we want in our new home to keep us motivated.

Gourmet kitchen, central vacuum, hot tub, a bath big enough for an adult…

Tonight, Emily started to add to it.

When she was little, we moved quite a bit.

Now, we’ve been here 12 years and Emily never wanted to move to another house but now she’s getting into it.

Look at what she added:

She’s dreaming with us!

And look at her printing! 🤩

Here I am, once again…

Sitting in my car with a book and a coffee.

Far enough to give Emily the space she needs to grow and conquer but close enough to be there in less than a minute if she needs me.

I love that she is growing and that our friends and community are willing to invest time in her.

Today she’s job shadowing at her cheer club in hopes to find a volunteering opportunity that would help her build more life and social skills.

She took to heart the directions she’s received. She’s branded with her club’s cheer gear, she’s wearing her indoor shoes, she has her long hair in a ponytail and is wearing a cheer bow.

I left her in good hands but …

I am still sitting in my car with a book and a coffee!
