The One with the Easy Street

We're not going to be on Easy Street for much longer.

We had the opportunity to move to a bigger, older house, or stay in our newer, modern house.  After much debate, we decided to try something new and move.  It will be sad to leave this house that we built ourselves and this neighborhood where our kids can just walk down the street to hang out at Amma and Bappy's (Grandma and Grandpa's) house.  In the end, there were too many things on our list of do-overs for our "dream house" that this house had so we couldn't pass it up.

1.  Bedrooms away from living areas.  Right now our master bedroom is right by the kitchen, and the kid's bedrooms are right by the living room.  It's hard to sleep in or go to bed at night with all the noise. 
2.  Kid's bedrooms close to master bedroom.  We thought it would be great to be away from the kids, until someone tried to break into our house.  Now I want to be close to my kids in case of an emergency.

3.  An actual entry way.  When people come to our door, they can see right into the chaos.  There is no hiding it! 

4.  Storage.  We don't even have a coat closet now, let alone a place for food storage.

5.  Bigger garage.  We like to park both cars in the garage, plus bikes, strollers, wagons, scooters, etc...Due to the cramped space in our current garage, I've run over bikes 4 different times.

Add remodeling and moving to the normal, busy December things going on and our lives are spinning out of control! There is lots of work to be done on a house that is 40+ years old, but we're hoping to be in by Christmas.
