today we start packing...
We've decided to try to take advantage of the cheaper real estate prices in Southern California. We hope to buy a slightly larger home ... the point is to "upgrade" in the current under-valued real estate market.
Unfortunately that means we have some work ahead of us! We start with the Mt Everest of packing boxes and then we collect as many newspapers as possible (thankfully my co-workers hoard their Wall Street Journals - 'cuz we're now set).
And then I pull out the kleenex... ok, that's a bit dramatic.
But this place, currently being dubbed "The Tisdale Bungalow", is so full of memories. We've had lots of fun had within these four walls. Oh - if the walls on this 1,400 square foot home could talk you could hear memories streaming from every open window. We could go on for days and recount times from the annual Gringo de Mayo fiestas, the surprise wedding... stampfests, cigar nights, fondue/birthday dinners, 10 Christmases, anniversaries, painting parties... pillow fights, movie nights, countless dinner parties, long discussions deep into the night and many friendships built and sustained! Over the years I've shared this home with 6 different roommates... and now my loving husband.
The builders of this 1929 home may not have known it was in for such a long ride... we've enjoyed our time here, we've left it better than we found it, and we'll always have a fond place for it in our hearts...
But it's time time to move on ... we will continue making memories with each other (friends and family alike)... and bequeath it to the next deserving soul. Anyone looking for a unique home in the historic district of Escondido? It's a lovely 3 bedroom (including den/sun room), 1 bath, eat-in kitchen with built in hutch, laundry room / storage room and original hardwood floors (under the current carpet) throughout a part of the house... it's quaint, it's quiet and it's perched up on a little hill looking over Old Escondido.
Stop by for a visit and stay a while...
