"For I have promises to keep
and miles to mop before I sleep!"
I spent three hours today at the old house on my hands and knees mopping miles of wood laminate flooring. Hubby, thinking he was helping by clearing out the old house, took my mops and left me with just a broom, vacuum and a few rags to do the floors. It was actually easier on my back than standing and mopping.
Some things I'll miss most about the old house are the Buddha statue, which belongs to the landlord, and the view, although today's view was awfully grey.
The new house is still a rental, but I love the traditional warmth and feeling of living in a big park. I've never been attracted to traditional houses, but I stunned myself by feeling right at home when we moved into this one! I may have to rethink that house we're planning to build and incorporate some warm, traditional elements.
Meanwhile, there's still a lot of unpacking and organizing to be done.
Have a colorful day
