After waiting for probably too long, I finally put my house on the market. The agent that I’m going through is a friend of mine and he seems to think that the house will sell in a fair amount of time. We’ll see.

As I have mentioned in another post, I’ve never been all that happy in this house. On the other hand, it’s been a roof over me and my kitty’s head and in that respect, it will be sad to leave it, but I’m ready to move on now. I’m ready to put this behind me. Even though I’ve only been in the house a little over a five years, the agent seems to think that I’ll get a fair amount out of it. Not to count my chickens before they hatch, but that trip to Paris I’ve always dreamed of… We’ll see.

Speaking of traveling, the older I get, the less I want to travel alone. I know that traveling to Paris alone will definitely keep the “possibilities” opened more should they present themselves (oui, oui Monsieur)! On the other hand, who wants to sit alone at a cozy bistro, sidewalk café or walk along the Champs-Elysées all alone. Again, we’ll see.

On the knitting front, the only thing I’m working on is another Five Hour Baby Sweater. This time in pink. I won’t bore you with another picture. I don’t know why I’m making these other than it’s a new pattern to me. Oh well, I guess they’ll be good to keep around to give away at some point.

This past Saturday, a friend and I went to see Brokeback Mountain. I really enjoyed the film and it left an impact on me throughout the weekend. I saw the movie at 1:00 and all through that evening and into some of Sunday, I was depressed. I won’t say anything more about the film except that I wish that things could have been different for them (the two main characters) and be prepared to cry.

For those who pray, please do and for others who don’t, please keep me in your thoughts that this house will sell soon. Take care and have a good week.

    hmmm alone at a cozy bistro…UH HELLO just think of who you could meet being alone. Tall, dark with a thick french accent. “Bonjour Monsieur” would just melt me!

    Those 5 hour baby sweaters are just too cute!

    I’ll keep ya in my thoughts for selling the house quickly!

    Yes, that movie is one that will stay with you a long time. I also found it very disturbing for several reasons, and some that I don’t understand. It was filmed around here, so is beautifully shot, but the characters hit a bit too close to home (I know some of them)! No, it’s not a happy movie; you MUST see it!!

    It’s always sad to leave something that has been a part of you for so long. But new adventures are in store for you!! You’ll see.

    Good Luck with the sale of the house! I know what trouble you’ve been through.

    Mmmm, Paris in the sprintime! Wonderful.

    Lots of love your way and the greatest of luck. Be open to the possibilities without attachment, see yourself as a success and you will be surprised. I will have to call you during the weekend and make sure all your dates allow you time for kniting.

    Have you found a new place yet? Well, hope your home sells.

    I wouldn’t want to be in Paris alone. But I would want it to be with like a fag hag…. she’ll understand if I hook up. 🙂

    I’m not going to see Brokeback mountain. I’ll probably get depressed myself.

    I hope you get the perfect buyer and a bidding war!

    Traveling alone does tend to encourage adventures of all kinds. It certainly did for me in Amsterdam. I hope you’ll find Paris extremely un-lonely 😉

    good luck with the sale of the house. I am glad that you decided to put it on the market. You’ll sell it… don’t worry.

    As far as Paris is concerned, you and I have been planning that for about 20 years now. I think it needs to happen! 🙂

    Good luck with the house sale, it is a big move to sell but a move that you had to make. It’s a very positive start to the year for you.

    Brokeback mountain will be released here in New Zealand in mid-February. I read the novella when it was first released about eight or so years ago. Ian and I will definately be going to see it.
