I'm generally one of those girls that will be sitting around and decide at the spur of the moment to go see a movie, visit the mall, or whatever. Big changes rattle me though and we (kids and I) just had a HUGE lifestyle change.

We did live in a cute three bedroom house on a nice family filled street. We had lived there for almost two years and LOVED it. We had a big back yard the kids didn't play in and I had to mow. We lived right by middle school and elementary school. I even had my own laundry room!

All of the above came with a huge expense and lot of upkeep for me. I was so stressed out and needed to relieve some of that so I could sleep at night again and be happy. I decided we needed to move into an apartment.

Now we are in a two bedroom place. I have to haul the laundry to the laundry room and must listen to neighbor kids play outside my door all the time. Every time someone knocks on my neighbor's door, I think I have a visitor. But we have a pool, no yard for me to maintain, and we are on ground level! There's also lots of eye candy!

I know moving was the right decision but it still had me a bit scared at first. The first night here I went to close the bathroom curtains and found a giant tarantula on my bathroom window! I was sure it was a sign that we shouldn't have given up our house but I got over it.

We might have given up our peaceful house for a smaller place and neighbors but the important stuff is back. A happy life and a week later, I have no regrets and neither do my children!

What conveniences make you happy in your daily life?

Talk to you soon,
Wendy Ely
