Musings From A Musical Mind

Learning Curves

We moved last Tuesday in what seemed like an endless whirl of exhaustion and lack of focus for DAYS!  Not only did we prepare our home that we own in Renton, WA for new renters by cleaning and painting, but we also moved to a different city.  We planned, packed, rented a moving truck and spent two nights with just our mattress on the first floor to better clean and organize.  By the time we got the truck, loaded it up and made sure everything was in pristine condition behind us, we hardly knew our own names.

Moving is not for the faint-hearted.  In fact, I do not recommend it for everyone.  It takes enormous amounts of strength, endurance and quick recovery.  So much easier to do when we were in our 30’s and 40’s.  I don’t think I’ve ever been this exhausted in my whole life.


And so we arrived last Tuesday to a beautiful little home, with new paint and carpeting.  And we hurried to get things unloaded and unpacked.  Because we are brand new property managers here, we had to quickly learn how to do that.  We will be learning it for a long time.  Rent had to be collected, new applications for residence taken, a new lease signed for a home in our community – all in a week’s worth of time.  Then there’s a software program to learn, hours to set, phones to be answered deposits to be made and files to be set up.

I feel as though we have been preparing for this new learning curve for a long time.  Having our own businesses from our home taught us many of the things that could not have been learned any other way.  Setting ones own hours, priorities and ways to organize an office – we already had learned long ago from just living day-to-day.

And we will continue to learn it.  If you want to follow our journey with property management – we have a page on Facebook.  Just type in “Union Gap West” and you’ll find us 🙂

Life is a journey – and if you are open to it, many strange and wonderful new learning curves.

God Bless
