There will be no Groomes house this year.


Guys, I am not going to lie. I am pretty down in the dumps that the deal fell through.  We have decided to postpone the whole endeavor and move into an apartment for the first 6 months until we find a place.

We have lived in a 1 bedroom apartment for the past 5 years and I am SO sick of apartment living–especially since I primarily work from home.  I really wanted space! I wanted to paint and nest!  Currently, my couch doubles as my office and it looks like this may continue.  We are hoping to expand to a 2 bedroom apartment. I guess that is a happy thought.

The loss of the house on top of a CRAZY sinus infection and oober painful surgery on a cyst basically ran me into the ground. I will be taking a couple days off from blogland to recoup.

Farewell for now!

  1. Oh no! I hope you feel better soon, Sally Anne! Buying a house is a huge decision and while it is exciting, you certainly do not want to have any feelings of regret. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason–maybe things didn’t work out as planned because something better is coming your way in the future? Whatever the reason is, I’m sure it will all work out in the end. XO!
