This has been, by far, the hardest move for our family. We really felt that we had finally set roots down in this home. Heck, in our 15 year relationship, the Monona stint was the longest time we've ever been in one house. But the show goes on - the opportunity here in Carlsbad is one that I could not pass up.
We were all sad when we took a last tour of the house as we truly felt that we were going to be there for the long haul. Allie and I poured so much energy (and cash) into that place to make it ours over the last five years. We've had a good track record of buying "diamonds in the rough", sprucing them up to our liking and then being happy with the results. While the Monona house wasn't perfect by any means (If I had an ice pack for every time I whacked my head on the low ceiling coming out of the basement), it was from the era we enjoy best (50s-60s), the yard was great and the friends and neighbors phenomenal.
Anyone wanna buy it?
