It was a very interesting long 4th of July weekend. I sure missed ya’ all. I took the weekend off and never once went online. My computer at home sucks big time and with the Spaces update, I can’t even get to my own Space any more. So the internet is going.
So you ask, what did you do this weekend? I’m glad you asked. My very last "guest" moved out of my house on Monday. It was my step-father who is disabled and he has lived with me on and off (more on than off) since 2000. So for the first time since I was 18 years old, I live in a house all by myself. It has only been two nights so not a big deal. My house had become known as "The Inn" since any time a room opened, someone was waiting to move in.
So all day Monday and Tuesday I cleaned. Cleaned and cleaned and cleaned even more. My step-father lived in the front part of the house and I lived in the back preferring the view of the back yard as opposed to the busy street out front. He lived in his "space" for almost two years and, not wanting to invade his territory, I stayed away as much as I could. BIG mistake. I have seen cleaner bathrooms at the Chevron station.
I am also still trying to sell the house so I started the "spring" cleaning routine. You know, baseboards, windows, cupboards, walls, etc… I still have three rooms to go. I also did the lawn and trimmed the trees (hate yard work ).
My next thing to do when it is all clean is to "flip" the house around. I am going to move into the front of the house and use the back for storage. Every room will be different than it is today.
When I have finished I plan on calling a realtor (hey Nooner, can you sell in Florida?) and having it professionally listed. The house will get more exposure through mailings and internet. Then I don’t have to answer the calls either.
Just wanted to update the house saga. This Space started out to be about the house, remodeling it, decorating it but I got away from that.
To read the story on the house use the category Home Improvements and the link below is when I first started ocnsidering the sale.
I will be by to visit everyone soon. Until then…Enjoy!
