On Wednesday afternoon--during our lunch hour, actually--we vacuumed and we scrubbed. And then we walked out of this place for the very last time.a nursery in preparation for a beautiful baby. And then we brought Nora home to this small, cozy space.
But honestly, it wasn't sad to leave it. We moved on with our lives--welcomed a new beginning, if you will--a long time ago. If you've been following this saga, you know that when we moved last summer, we weren't able to sell our old condo. We had to rent it out, which was fine, but not something that we really wanted to do. But eight months later, our friends/tenants moved out, and 18 days after that--on this past Thursday afternoon--the buyer signed the papers that made her the new owner.
We really couldn't have asked for it to work out any better, except if we had actually sold it last year! Otherwise, the timing seemed serendipitous. Needless to say, to get rid of this place is a huge relief--emotionally, physically, mentally and financially.
I almost can't even believe it's really over. I think it'll take me some time to process completely.
Celebration is in order!
