Although not a native New Englander, we have been in MA since 1999. Started out in Watertown and then moved about 30 minutes north in a mad panic to buy a house when we found ourselves unexpectedly expecting.
I have been a stay at home mom to two boys for the past two years since my youngest was born. It has been an interesting, identity changing, life-turned-upside-down, two years. But wouldn't change it for the world.
We are currently in a quest to move (a few short towns away), and have been trying to sell our house since March. After months of keeping the house clean, leaving for showings and open houses, and experiencing the ups and downs of two offers, two inspections, and, unfortunately, two Unreliable Buyers, the For Sale sign is still planted in our front yard. I want so much to be able to sell and buy before the start of the school year. It's still an unpredictable market here. But I think (hopefully) on an upswing...
I'm relatively new to blogging. In fact, just started LifeAsIKnowIt last fall, but have found it to be such an enormous and much needed outlet. I had forgotten how much I enjoy writing, and how much I need to make my days with two boys sound as humorous as possible...not always easy, but essential for my sanity (and my family's).
This blog is a great idea. I hope we can manage to find some sort of meeting place. Would love to get to know my fellow local blogging mamas!
