I never learned to ride a bike. Yes, you read that correctly… I never learned to ride a bike. Although, I don’t think this is very strange in the osteogenesis imperfecta community.
I’m not sure how it happened, but somewhere between casts and splints I never graduated from my training wheels as a child. But, to make sure I never felt left out my parents did eventually purchase a used adult tricycle for me. It was fabulous and my dog Jasmine and I were the hit of the neighborhood. And, it helped me feel like a “normal” kid.
Last week, I celebrated my birthday… I am another year older maybe just maybe I’m finally a little bit wiser.
The past year has been a whirlwind of change… Jerad secured a full time job two weeks after my birthday last year. Successfully ending our year of unemployment and underemployment. Bonus, we both work at the same college now. J I’d never have guessed that one!
As of yesterday afternoon, we are no longer the owners of our sweet little cottage. In regards to real estate transactions, the sale was simple and easy. As I type this, I’m sitting inside my new home. Looking at boxes and chaos all while wondering if this home will ever feel like home.
We moved!!! Yep, we are now living in our construction site… I mean home…
We were very blessed with our real estate transaction. Our old home went under contract in 7 days, yes I said 7! We had our first walk-through scheduled 12 hours after we went live on www.realtor.com. Don’t worry, I share our tips and tricks on how we did it.
We Bought A House! It was a long journey of open houses, walk-through, and Internet searches to find the perfect home. We toyed with spending the max of our budget to buy a move in ready home when no homes were matching our needs.
I am a mega fan of IHG brand hotels and have been for the better part of a decade. It helps that I have achieved Platinum status with the hotel chain. Before booking our hotel in Atlanta, I carefully reviewed all my options… googled distances… and read reviews.
I selected the Crowne Plaza Midtown based on price and location. I booked even though I knew the property had a plethora of negative reviews. I assumed my fellow travelers were picky.
I’m finally home from my East Coast road trip and exhausted. I was lucky enough to spend two nights and two days in lovely Atlanta, Georgia. I consider myself a savvy traveller but Atlanta proved to be a problematic trip… I even managed to be stranded in the middle of the city for an hour!!!! Taxi service in Atlanta is deplorable.
