Wow, it's a lot of work getting a house ready for the selling stage . . . make it look spacious, make it look impersonal, make it look healthy, etc. Or maybe that's just part of the marketing side of my previous professional life. But, it still looks so EMPTY.
There was a print mix up on the time of the open house in the realtor's ad - not sure whose fault it was. Tim said that 3 older couples came by to look. This is a nice retiree house with everything on the same floor, not a big house to keep clean, and an easy yard to maintain.
Now I don't feel so pressured to get this done and get that done, especially now that I don't have that much left to do - still finish painting the trim in the back bedroom and the eaves on the east and west side of the house. And, a few other small projects.
I am taking a few days off and visiting my friend Sarah and Sherry in Dodge City KS for the 4th celebration. This is our traditional "burnt hot dog and potato salad" get-together we do during the summer.
I ran across this quote in a comment on RVSue and Crew's blog (listed in my list of blogs I follow to the right) and it clunked me on the forehead. I cringe when I hear music from my past or see pictures of old cars, etc. I guess I am just not ready to be in the real old age mind frame yet according to May Sarton: “I suppose real old age begins when one looks backward rather than forward.”
Have a safe and fun 4th Celebration.
