Miss/Won't Miss

We are now T-minus 7 days to the closing on the new house. In addition to the packing, I've been reflecting on the things I'll miss and the things I won't miss about living in this house. It is very convenient--there's a branch of the library not even a half mile from here, and the post office is a half mile away. There's a Walgreens on the corner, within a quarter mile, and a Cumberland Farms convenience store and gas station 200 steps from this house. But it is also very noisy here. We're just off a main road, and the house is very close to the street. I am constantly afraid of the dogs getting hit by cars in the road, and the neighbors behind us are noisy.

One thing I will miss is the water. This is the view of Apponaug Cove, taken from my living room window:



These are the inhabitants of Apponaug Cove. We have ducks, geese and swans that make the Cove home all year round:


The geese occasionally cross the street to nibble the grass on our lawn:

Now onto the things I won't miss. This is the view from the side living room window. This is my neighbor's house, it is way too close:

This is the view from the kitchen window. In the spring/summer the trees are filled with bushy looking leaves. In the winter this is what it looks like. I am so thankful that I won't have this view anymore:


This is the view from the back door. Apparently this is where trucks go to die, as I've yet to see any of these trucks move:

This house is also three miles away from TF Green Airport. Sure, it's convenient when we are flying somewhere. But planes fly near hour house, and sometimes right over it. This was taken from my living room window:

Overall, good riddance. Out with the old and in with the new.
