we might be moving! we have been in Hawthorne, waiting patiently, forever. We might be going a bit farther south and buying a duplex in Torrance. The property isn't huge, but the house sizes are right and the area is really great (Old Torrance) I will be about a mile away from a trader joes and a whole foods. which was a requirement for moving anyway. no Starbucks across the street :( but I will find a new hangout for us I suppose.
Things I am excited about: A/C!! a yard(ish) for the kids to play in, Decorating for keeps, getting to know people with a sense of permanence. Walking and living in a real neighborhood.
Not so excited about: actually moving again (though this time at least it will be a while before doing it EVER again) booting out the tenants that are currently living in the front house (grandmas house) they are on lease til Sept. I feel bad about making their lives a pain.
so wish us luck that our time has come for this and that all the ducks line up.
some pictures of my little leprechaun on St. Patrick's Day. Dominic was not feeling photogenic. ;)
