Life is funny.

It is…Life has a funny way of throwing you a curve ball right when you think you’ve got it allllll figured out, doesn’t it?

For the last 6 months I’ve felt ready to pile another label onto my already full plate…I was settled finally, comfortable in our new home and town, healthy again, Bronson has been killing it at work, the kids are doing great, Ozzy’s not such a baby baby any longer..the time is now. I’ll start to write again.

Everything is in place.

So I started. Just last week. On Monday.

On Friday (of this same last week) a friendly realtor popped in while my kids and I were snuggled up on the couch hiding from the rain, to let me know not to worry….,”The offer on your rental house hasn’t gone completely through yet,  and you’ll get at least 60 days to move out since you’ve been here so long. It’s California law.”

Move out?

Is this house even for sell?



He informed me that our landlord and him had worked out a deal…a pocket listing. So there has been no sign in the yard, or notice to us, but yes.  It is for sale.  Actually, it’s in the process of selling.

We had the feeling this would happen, so I can’t say I was completely shocked…but shocked, nonetheless.

So, here I am. In limbo with you all once again.

HaHa.. I kind of have to laugh.

This time will be different, though. I’m not going to go away again to deal with the shenanigan that come along with being uprooted. I wont retreat into myself. I’ll stay with you this time around.

I was excited to intro you to our wonderful little San Clemente life we’ve created, and maybe I still can. We’ll see how this plays out…

But in the mean time, we’ve decided it’s best to start looking for houses in the Costa Mesa area where Bronson’s studio is. His commute is becoming a little draining, so I feel like that it’s time while the kids are still young. I would love it if anyone who may be from there, or has any connections in Costa Mesa could guide us along this process. I’m fully open to any and all advice…and especially open to any great rental properties-Fingers crossed!

Life is funny, guys, real funny.

San Clemente is wonderful! I moved here four months ago and love it so much. My dad is a real estate agent and broker and helped me find my cute little place right by the beach! He does work all over Orange County (including Costa Mesa, which is a really cool area too!) so I’d be happy to pass along his info if you like! Here’s his site: http://www.brettsmithrealtor.com/

San Clemente is so wonderful! I moved here four months ago and I love it. My dad is a real estate agent and broker in Orange County and he helped me find my cute little spot by the beach! He does work all over the county and has helped lots of people find sweet spots in Costa Mesa, too. (Which has all its own charms and the best donuts in the universe at Sidecar.) You guys will make it work! Here’s his site if you’d like to give him a call! http://www.brettsmithrealtor.com/

I totally feel you! I am waiting with my three kiddos for our landlord/developer to tell us it is time to move out so he can bulldoze our sweet little rental and put up like 8 houses in this lot. We are trying to head down south for more sun anyways but waiting on job stuff. My husband also has a studio! Maybe we will become neighbors. Good luck with the move and all the changes- it will all work out for the best!!!!
