I won't leave you in the dark...no chronological order to this big news because it's been in the discussion works for a bit. I mentioned a couple of months ago that Dagan and Leah were planning to finish off their basement next...well, they are going to make a MIL apartment...for me! When it is finished I will be moving in with them. Alley, too, of course.
We've been over the pros and cons. Lots more pros then cons. Last week Dagan, Leah, and I had a video call and we officially made the final decision that--yes--I would move in with them and the project would begin. Needless to say, this is down the road with construction being what it is and all. They want to do as much as they can themselves and with the help of friends and family...kind of like they did with their deck. Not all of it, of course, but as much as they can.
So the texts and emails have been flying between Leah and I. Throwing out ideas for the kitchenette...where a washer and dryer might go along with a cat box for Alley (probably maintenance room)...would I like to go with a wardrobe & drawer units/dressers vs. a closet (yes)...what would I like Leah to sell on Facebook? This puts a completely new light on downsizing and purging!
Anyways, was a good week! Alley has been feeling more and more at home.
I finally called when someone was in the office. I said I had all the paperwork on the new cat and she said I had to fill out a form and she'd clip it outside my door for me. Okay.
What a joke! (can click to enlarge)
