The last night with this being MY house

In a few hours, this house -- so dear to me -- will not be "mine" anymore. Tomorrow the deed is recorded and it is officially not MY house anymore. A secret - the people buying my house are very dear friends of mine. This lets me be a lot happier about leaving this special haven than I might have been. With the new house being such a drama, it's hard to feel too excited about moving yet...there are a lot of hurdles DB and I still have to leap before we sink into the Home that is waiting for us. But we're on the road to Home. And this dear home is on the road to the rest of its days...starting with welcoming my well-loved friends and their children to its warm walls. While I am ready to say goodbye to my past here and I always am excited to move on to the next chapter of my life, there is always a tinge of sadness as the transition happens. Just the first transition this week...I breathe and start to say goodbye.

I still own my house but I leased it out to someone. It makes me sad to see it each month when I collect the rent and check on things. She does not grow flowers and barely cuts the grass. There are smudgey prints on the walls and it depresses me. I still like pulling the weeds (she let them bloom and go to seed) and cleaning the gutters, and I'd plant flowers but I don't think she'd water them. I still feel a connection to it but I am more than ready to let it go. I am so excited for you.....I know there are hassles and hurdles but it is still so exciting!!!!! PS thanks for your words of encouragement on my blog, and yes, I did enjoy the roses, I still do. I take them and put them on my bedside table when I go to bed at night. Thanks!!

I'm so happy that your friends are buying your house -- that makes letting go of it much easier.

I am sososo happy for you that everything worked out for you and DB. Speaking of which,

I really need to know if anonymous has a brother or good friend out here on the East Coast...
