Where The Heck Does Time Fly To

I really don't understand how time flies so quickly now that I'm not a kid anymore. Where the heck does it fly to? When I was young, it seemed like a million hours until summer came and school got out. The same thing was true for how long it took to turn 18 and be free to do what I want. Yeah, the "do what I want" part never happened. 

Me on my 18th birthday, ready to be a free woman! LOL

The last few months have been spent mostly traveling back and forth by car and plane to Ohio. My heart broke last year when my youngest daughter, SIL, and grandkids moved way, way, way east to Ohio. After being used to them living close by for so long, it was a shock to my system to have them leave. I'm adjusting, but I'm not happy about it.

Now my oldest daughter is moving there...nooooo! I got to spend eight days with her trying to get settled in a condo. When my youngest grandson saw the condo for the first time, he said, "It's amazing! It looks like a castle!" Yes, it does, sort of. It was built in 1928 as an apartment building, but was converted to condos. It's all very vintage.

This is what you have to use to call up to the rooms. 

This is what is in the room to answer and buzz people up.

Thank goodness for these helpers in setting up the only piece of furniture in the condo. The truck with all her belongings never made it while we were there. We finally got the news that it was next week so we flew home. When we landed, we got news that the truck will arrive in "3 to 5 days" or so they say. Ugh! She'll be flying back without me. 

The couch was comfy, thank goodness, because that's where we slept for five of the eight days. 

Unusual figures of pigs and flowers are stamped in the plaster.

The attic is where the storage units are...way too creepy for  me!
Definitely don't want to go up there at night and alone.

Now that I'm home, I have lots of sewing to catch up on.

First on the list...It's A Dog's Life Blog Hop.

It's going to be so much fun with these bloggers who met the challenge!



  1. Oh no! How can that be? Does that mean you’ll be moving next?? When you find out where the time went, will you please let me know so I can go find it?

  2. Well, I guess the good news is they are in one place....makes seeing all of them easier.

  3. What an amazing place! It's just the kind I'd love myself, especially if I didn't have to run up the stairs these days! =)

  4. Nice 18th birthday photo of you. Yes, time really does fly by or so it seems. The condo truly is a vintage charm. My daughter and her family are far away also, so I understand missing them all too well. Looking forward to It's a Dog's Life Blog Hop.

  5. I can't figure out where time goes either! Whoosh! a whole month gone by before I got started on it, almost... What a bummer that another daughter moved to Ohio! That's a long way to commute. I hope her condo is basically modern; a few vintage touches are ok, but not the whole place! Also hope it's a fruitful move for her.

  6. What a cool looking place, but I'm with you on that attic. Strange to see chicken wire up there. I hope that's not the only security for each unit. LOL!! What a nightmare trying to get her belonging. I hope they come though this time and get it to her in a reasonable time frame.

  7. Think you might ever move to Ohio? Hubs and I are thinking of making another move in the next couple or 3 years. It's a massive undertaking at our age - lol - but we have always been up for change. Love the vintage, quirky condos. I hope your daughter really likes it there.


Comments are always appreciated!
