Yesterday upon returning home from errands. My husband noticed the House for Sale sign in our neighbors yard. Many thoughts went through my head. The first being, I guess my "Get to Know Your Neighbor Party" will also need to be a "Farewell for the Neighbors we just got to meet party.
I have no doubt the house for sale is very nice. It seems well kept. Fenced in yard, screen porch, nice landscaping, 4 bedrooms and 2 and 1/2 baths, and a bonus room. My main concern, naturally, is who moves in. Again my mind races to all kinds of ideas, a family with children (with of course girls the same age as mine), I could convince my old neighbors from Delaware to move here, OR I could convince many of my Delaware friends to pitch in and buy it. That way everyone could have a place to stay when they come visit with no crowding! It could be their own Tennessee Villa!
I know I have no control over who moves in to this house. I did give some thought to how realtor's describe and advertise their property. Keeping that in mind, here is my own Want Ad I want printed along side.
New neighbor family with children. All age children accepted. Girls ages 9 - 11 years preferred. New family should be fun loving, open minded, with a good sense of humor. NPR listeners and those who enjoy a good happy hour a plus.
Wish us luck!
