Weird. Dog must have eaten my first response I made earlier today.

How far away is it?

Her house is about 5 miles away.

How is that going?

I had an empty nest for about 2 years while both daughters were in college. Just like then, they often stop by. It would be different if they moved 500 miles away.


That’s fantastic and also unreal.

Yeah, I didn't buy my first house until 30. It's my 22 year old daughter that bought the house. She reluctantly took her sister with her.

Congrats! Now you have two houses to take of!

No kidding. I've been over there every weekend. This past weekend I was hanging paintings and putting together a bed frame for the guest bedroom. My daughter wants me to build a window seat in the master bedroom. That will take some time.
