A Change is Gonna Come

 
 
I've had a very emotional month.  I finally figured out I'm allergic to my house.  I've done alot of work on it to get rid of the mold upstairs, but the basement is a problem.  I've been sick for at least two years, and just kept getting worse.  Sometimes, I can be a very slow learner.  Now that the decision is made, I feel so relieved.  For the next few months, I am moving into a gorgeous home in a beach side community, Birch Bay.  The house is on a bank above the bay with spectacular views.  I am able to rent the house month to month, and am close enough that I can go to the farm a few days a week to work on the clean-up and the yard sales.  Oh, have I got a lot of work to do.  But, at the end of it all, I will be heading back to Seattle where I am from.  There I will find a place to plant myself and blossom.  I have alot of life left to live, and a new Linda to nourish.
Wish me well, friends.

That sounds like a wonderful idea! I bet the water views up there at Birch Bay are just spectacular!

Like someone told me two years ago when I was facing a move from Tennessee to Ohio, sometimes you gotta be re-planted to bloom!

And bloom you will!

Of course we wish you well! And you WILL do well. The beach house sounds wonderful.....please post photos of that gorgeous view for us as soon as you can. I hope the farm sells quickly for you, too.

Oh I know you will be doing so well in your new adventure - but I'll miss you. We looked at a place overlooking Birch Bay years ago - it is still one of our favorite day trips. Maybe we'll see you up there one day.

I know that decision was, at least in part, a bit heart-wrenching for you. Naturally I wish you the best! You are brave and smart and funny and you have lots of varied interests. I know you'll keep us informed of what you're up to. Who knows, all your blogging friends might just show up in Seattle to come play with you next summer!

In the meantime, enjoy the journey! Big hugs,
Cathy

Enjoy your time at the beach house. I have always thought that the sounds and smells of the ocean have a way of healing us emtionally & physically. The most important thing is for you to regain your health and find the best place for you to start a new phase of your life. I wish you the best on your continuing journey and hope to hear from you when you are finally settled in your new home.

I can for sure feel your pain. I lived in a house for many years that had mold in the basement and in the fall when we turned on the furnace it spread into the house. Then in time it went up into the walls of the upstairs. I had to move. I too was sick a lot. I am glad you have it figured out and are getting away from the mold. I hope you get to feeling better very soon.
