saying goodbye


Heading in again today with a list of incidentals to retrieve...wheels from the big table, ladder, some lumber, some bolts that got left behind, the pavers from the driveway. It will be the last time I go in the house as I am leaving the keys when we leave. Kevin is going to have the sewer cut off first thing tomorrow morning so that he can start the permitting process and we will cancel our utility accounts.

We (or maybe just Marc since the other twin will be here for her week) will be back on Wednesday to try and load up the sandblast booth onto a trailer and motor it out here.

And after that? I doubt I will ever go back.

  1. Are you okay? It sounds as if you are looking forward and not back.

  2. You will never regret retrieving the things you wanted. Now you have a chance to keep and use things that have served you well. We are going today to see what's left in my daughter's garage that we will have to move or get rid of - no choice for us because a new owner will want the space completely cleaned out.

  3. Endings are not bad, they are just endings. It does not mean all the memories have died, you still have those and it does mean you can make lots of new memories.

  4. Is this the city house?
    Obviously, I haven't been around in awhile.

  5. It's hard to know how you'll react to a situation until you experience it.

  7. As Reya said -- this is a massive move! I am impressed with your thoroughness. But yeah, why let all that stuff go to waste?

  10. I know what that feels like. It's a very emotional process. Hugs to you.
