Aliens Might Make Us Move! (writer's workshop)




I think the only way we would move would be if our house got destroyed or if aliens came from space and picked us up and moved us somewhere else. We are very happy with our neighborhood and with our house. Although we would love to live in a climate that is warm year round without snow, the thought of moving is just too overwhelming. Moving is just a huge hassle, lots of stress and very tiring. I was never so exhausted in my life as I was when we moved into our house.

Perhaps one day if we become too feeble to live on our own, then we may move into some kind of assisted living place. That is the only way I see us moving. We are right where we belong!

What about you?

This is in response to Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop prompt: What would it take for you to pick up and move?

A nuclear blast is the only thing that could move me.

Well, Karen, that picture you shared tells me you really DO LOVE where you live to be willing to deal with all that!! Of course unlike us in FL, you get some nice fall colors and it may not average 103 degrees in the summer!

Interestingly, I had thought we would stay where we're at indefinitely, but my huband lost his job and as the search wears on we are having to consider relocation. The main thing about that that worries me is his elderly parents who rely on us so much.

That and the prospect of shoveling snow ....

If I had more money, I'd be in a bigger place in a minute! I'm tired of making do and living in a little house. I don't need a mansion, but a little more room would be GREAT.

I would be staying where we are unless the hubs gets posted overseas with child education benefits.

Sandee said...

I'm glad you are right where you belong. I'd move to Florida. Just saying.

Have a terrific day. :)

In my life, I've picked up and moved a LOT; sometimes several times in one year. Now that I'm living on the farm, I can't anticipate moving again until either it's in a box or I hear the trumpet call.

If I lived in a place that had that much snow in the winter I would totally have to move.

We've moved quite a few times and lived in three different states and I would certainly move again if I could. I'd love to live closer to the coast. Moving is hard work but it's also an adventure!

I chose the same prompt.. it definitely would take a lot for me to move.

Having a great neighborhood is a huge key to staying put. I've lived in this house 3 months now and not a single neighbor has attempted, even though I've tried initiating conversation, to speak to us.

You sure get a lot of snow.

How I dream of living somewhere that's warm year round too!! But, that means taking my WHOLE family with because there's no way I'd be able to live so far away from them.

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

George: Sure hope we don't have a nuclear blast so you can stay where you are!

Waytenmom: Sure hope your husband can find a another job down there. The warm weather year round sounds wonderful. I'm not a big fan of snow, but traveling to a new place is scarier for me than putting up with what I know.

Lin: Hope you will be able to get a bigger house one day while you still need it.

Dominique: Hope you can stay put.

Sandee: I'm not big on hurricanes or lizards and snakes in my house so Florida doesn't really appeal to me much, although I have never been there and many people do like it.

Thistle Cove Farm: I can't imagine moving several times in one year. Glad you have finally found a place you like where you can hopefully stay now.

Jessica and JD: I guess we just are used to it. It comes but doesn't stay for long. We only get big dumps like this 2-3 times a winter generally.

Beaded Tail: Wow, three different states. I wouldn't want to live nearby any water because of the risk of flooding. I do like looking at the lake from the window of the building where I work. I'm not big on adventure.

The Working Housewife: Thanks for stopping by. Glad to hear you like your home too!

Alicia: That's sad your neighbors don't speak to you. We have some like that too, but at least others who are very friendly.

Jackie: It is nice living close to family.
