Our House

by Bryan Friedman in Daddy's Corner

You may have noticed that Born Friedman has been sort of quiet for a while. This is mainly because we’ve been *super* busy with selling our house, buying a new one, and getting ready for the move. Well, tonight is our last night in our Simi Valley place and tomorrow night we go to sleep in our new house across town in Newbury Park (or Thousand Oaks, depending on who you ask).

I’ve been pretty good about not getting too emotional with everything so far, but it’s kind of all hitting me now. I’ve been in this house nine years, so there are a lot of memories here — especially in the last five years with Alison (and Princeton), and even more so in the past two with Madelyn.

So while I don’t have time to write a whole long post to give a proper tribute to what has been a great place to live for nearly a third of my life, I thought I’d at least end our run here on Country Club Drive with a retrospective list of past posts featuring our Wood Ranch palace prominently…and this is just in the past two-and-a-half years!

    Yes, she certainly was a good house. I spent only 3 years there myself, but definately some fond memories. I’m sure she will make the next family just as happy as she made us all.
