I Caught a Shark and I Have to Move

Kathryn is now known as “SHARKWOMAN!”

It’s exciting to post that I actually caught a shark on my last trip to the coast a couple of weeks ago!!! (as seen in my header photo) Yep, I’m pretty proud! We threw him back in to continue his sharky life, as we were fishing for halibut, not sharks. (My husband caught a sting ray after that. We wanted halibut! That one went back into the ocean too.)

It’s alsoΒ  melancholy when you have to announce to your readers that you need to take a hiatus from your recipe blog for other important matters. My post today is to let you know that our landlord is selling our the house we are renting and we have to be out by mid-September. We are on the fast-track to see if we can:

A. Qualify to buy this house (we have first refusal on it),

B. Rent something else.

C. Qualify and just buy a new house.The housing market is coming back in our small city, so I think it is a good time to buy. We potentially plan on moving to Texas in 3 years because daughter wants to go to UT Austin (my Alma Mater), and we might actually get some equity in that time-frame.

Longish story short, we have to find a place to live, either rental or buying, pack, and then move. I work a full-time pretty stressful job in between my blog. So I am going to hang it up for a couple of months until we are all settled wherever we end up. However, I do plan on re-posting some earlier recipes occasionally from when I had a handful of followers,Β  just to get something out there.

Just know I WILL be back at some point after the dust settles. Thank you my friends and readers for your support through this difficult time!

    Mom, full time work, moving, blogging AND cooking. I just make stuff up (more or less with some reality) YOU actually post stuff that we can COOK. That is a lot of work. Take your time. We’ll be here when you get back.

    I wished you lived closer – there is a house in my neighborhood just waiting for someone to move in. Wishing you the best of luck in finding a perfect home, and if your daughter changes her mind and decides to go to CSUS or UCD or USB or Stanford I’ll send you the name of that real estate agent.

      Awww thank you so much Juliette! I hope I can find time to continue reading your wonderful stories, though!

    Hang in there. We’ll be here when you get back. πŸ™‚

    Ugh. Sounds stressful indeed. Good luck with everything!

      Thanks Mimi! I can live in the cooking blog world vicariously through your blog and others in the meantime! That reminds me, I’ve been meaning to add you to my blogroll and get that cleaned up. No time like the present… πŸ™‚

    Good to see you have the priorities straight. I would probably do a bunch of posts and time them. But, doing that would have a price in quality. Best of luck with the move.

    Hope it all fall together swiftly and easily. Moving is not fun! Will look forward to some of your earlier posts that I know I haven’t seen yet. πŸ™‚ Best of luck!

    Catching a shark is pretty impressive! Good luck with the house situation. Two months’ notice is ridiculous if you ask me (and would be illegal in the Netherlands — here you can basically never throw out your tennants as long as they pay the rent).

      Yes, well it is inconvenient but not much we can do about it in the U.S. of A. Actually he was only required to give 30 day’s notice, so I feel it’s not as bad as it could be. And catching that shark was pretty exciting, for sure! Thank you for your comments. πŸ™‚

    Oh I hate moving but love the adventure of starting in a new place. Best wishes Kathryn, for a safe landing wherever this journey takes you! 😊
