First off – is it just me, or is it weird to be writing on a day that doesn’t always exist? I’ll try not to think too hard on this, I may give myself a case of Twilight Zone syndrome, of which I am sure is a thing, dodododo.
So as we make all the repairs on the house for the new owners that we should have done for ourselves ages ago, (you know how that works), I can’t help but become melancholy. I know we were only in this house for just shy of 7 years, but lots happened in that time and I was just getting it to where I wanted it to be…Oh who am I kidding, it would have been a continuous change up anyway.
Case in point – and this is just the front entry!
Since we don’t get actual possession of the new place until mid April, I have spent many nights staring up at the ceiling waiting and failing to fall asleep. What fits where? Keep or get rid of? Paint or don’t (why do I even bother with that question I don’t know). Replace the cabinets or just the doors or just paint? Bathfitters to cover the beige or rip and replace? I would love to hear experiences with that system if you did it.
I’m thinking of having an accessory exchange party, where everyone brings their nice, well kept accessories they no longer want and exchange it for someone else’s likewise. Has anyone tried this? If yes, do tell.
And so, I will continue on with the little home tour of my favourite house EVER (for now – I’m really, really hoping I’ll feel the same about the next one). At least I will get to see for myself even, how much love and sweat and creativity I poured in. I said at the beginning of my blogging life, I would share the successes and failures (which in my mind have been few and far between. Since you have all been so kind with your comments over the years, I can only assume this). Comment about anything you want to share about moving or leaving or your homes or my home or, well, anything! And thanks for popping in!
