Paying It Forward

Yesterday was officially moving out day. The moving van came at 9am, and by 4 that afternoon they had loaded everything onto the moving van.

It's amazing how much stuff one family of five can accumulate over a twenty-five year period!

It was a bittersweet day. The house looked so sad and forlorn without all of the things that make our house a home.

 Realtors will tell you to have your house "broom clean" for the next owners. Sorry, but that's not good enough for me. When I leave a house, I leave it clean from top to bottom. Cabinets and shelves are wiped clean, baseboards and ceiling fans are dusted, carpets are vacuumed, floors are mopped, and bathrooms are scrubbed clean.

I like to think that I'm paying it forward.

It is our hope and prayer that the next owners will enjoy our home as much as we did.

The future may seem fragile from this point on, but we're keeping this end up!

  1. This post brought a tear to my eye...really! On our last visit I told mom it was hard to take pictures because it was like saying "goodbye" to a dear friend. I'm sure you are quickly making the house in Pittsburgh a home. xo sniff...sniff
