This week’s news will be short and sweet. I have not even thought about writing the news much less what’s going on around Anderson or the world. Don and I are in the process of moving about 5 miles out of town and I can tell you I am never, ever going to move again. Especially moving from a house you’ve lived in for 31 plus years. Do you know how much stuff you gather in that amount of years? I have no idea why I kept some of this stuff. The end of this week, Friday and Saturday, July 5, and 6, I will be having a garage sale under the carport at 244 Hill St. in town. What doesn’t go will go somewhere else and not here that’s for sure.
And to answer this question I’ve been asked quite often lately, no, we are not selling the house right now. Our middle daughter Brandi and husband Dave Waitz will be moving in with their two boys Luke and Colton. Luke will be starting kindergarten at Anderson Elementary this August. Colton will follow in a couple of years. Today, they asked me which room was going to be their bedroom and I showed them. I also told them that this very room was also their mother’s bedroom when she was little. They were excited about that. The Waitz’s are moving here from Montgomery and I’m excited about that!
