Here We Go Again
When the sale of the house fell through last week,
after we had moved everything
but the appliances and couches out,
I was at a complete loss.
It took a few days for me to conclude
that I wasn't about to haul it all back to town.
We were going to have to move into the farmhouse
ready or not.
down cheap (and I do mean cheap)
indoor-outdoor carpet in the living room
to cover the bare floor from where we tore up the carpet
a few years ago.
I also did this in the upstairs bathroom
where we took up the old gross carpet there as well.
This is temporary until the house in town sells.
It actually looks good.
Too bad I don't have the before and after photos.
Then, I turned the girls loose.
They hauled all their boxes in from the shop,
and up these stairs.
(top of stairs)
And got busy pounding nails in the walls.
This was a strict no-no at our house in town.
They didn't hold back.
It did my heart good.
(my hippie-at-heart child)
They also went right to work on sewing their curtains.
Later that evening they put up the tent.
(I miss the green grass so very much this year)
They had plenty of helpers
While we were busy at the farm
the realtors were busy showing our house again.
It is impressive how well one can clean
an nearly empty house.
AND we got another
So...here we go again.
