Funny how fast some things change when others seem so slow!
Ok, well not maybe all in one day, but pretty darn near!! We thought when my dad bought this house, that we were just the last house before the
cul-de-sac and that eventually there would only be a couple of homes there we would have to look at!
Oh no....poof and just like that, cul-de-sac gone and turned into a through street. And LOOK at the homes in the background next to the woods. Now those weren't there yesterday I'm sure!!!
So now I can no longer live in denial that I am living in the country. I could always ignore all the homes next to me on the 'other' side of the house and pretend I was still in the country by only looking to the East!!! Did I mention that I MISS my home in the country??? I MISS my home in the country! But.....I have to stay here and take care of dad. Just the way it is in life for me right now.
And in about 6 weeks, dad and I will be heading to the house in Arizona for the winter. And...oh yeah.....I just heard that they put in a new house out there on the empty lot RIGHT NEXT to ours!! What is up with all this change and growth!! I thought the economy was bad! We only had a one year with our 'sort of' country view above here in Indiana. But in Arizona, we had the empty lot for 7 years!!! We could see out!! We could see the top of a mountain in the distance, we could see sunsets!!
Gheesh...how fast a perspective changes!!
