All wonderful ideas... but the best idea I've ever had was to AND THIS IS NO JOKE, rebuild the same house over again times 3. Yes I have built the same floorplan house three times. With the only exception was the house kept getting bigger and it was in three different states. It was a floorplan my husband dearly loved and it was always, "if there was one thing you could change what would it be?" Closets were in the same place, shelves, drawers, cabinets, bedrooms, etc. same place just more spacious! My husband, asked on our third moving day, where something belonged... I gave him my " signature look" (I love that commercial) and I said figure it out, it goes in the same place as in the other two closets... he looked baffled and moved on! Now my new house is and will be completely different... and as much as I want to be settled... I am so afraid of the change! And this time... a widow, and that signature look, I would take it back in a heartbeat.

For the first time in my 60+ years I am living alone along with my pets. Aside from occasional friends visiting, just working on my new house - decorating, organizing, getting it just the way I want it - brings me happiness. Of course having input from the 2 cats is always a plus!
