Do you want to downsize that?

It’s getting windy again here in KS.

But I’m not just talking about the weather. The winds of change are visiting our family…AGAIN!!!

2 1/2 years ago, we had four children in our home. In less than four months, we will be down to one! My son graduates on May 16th. He will be leaving for college by the end of August.

If you remove one 18 year old male along with all of the food that he eats and all of the messes that he leaves everywhere, we won’t really need a large 3 BR apartment any more.

As I was looking at the layouts of the 2BR apartments, I had the had to keep reminding myself that I was looking for something for three of us. In some ways, it does feel a little like trying to keep your feet under you in a gusting windstorm.

The idea of moving again is not my favorite thought but $3,000 is a pretty strong inducement. That is how much we will save in the next year if we downsize. I will lose my office/library but that is not the end of the world.

Our lease expires at the end of May but I have to make a decision and notify them of our intentions by this Thursday.
