So yesterday. Rearranged living room, rearranged basement, rearranged office, rearranged kitchen. Stripped all walls of personal photos. Ran errands to pick up bins, paint, ceiling popcorn, carpet cleaner. Still to come: transfer of multiple furniture items to other rooms, general decluttering, making keys and signing papers. Open house is on Sunday.
This part is actually enormously helpful. I'm enjoying sprucing the house up for sale, making it look the most attractive to buyers. It's making me again appreciate its assets and the reasons I bought it in the first place. It's been a nice little home for us. I didn't get to all the fixing up that I'd wanted to do, but for the most part it was comfortable, bright, cheery, safe.
I'm grateful that all those spiritual qualities will both stay in the house and come with us, too. I've moved enough to know that spiritual qualities are like that. Once you've demonstrated them, you always have them.
Well, another day dawns with a detailed to-do list, so gotta get moving. I love this blog—it's part of home I won't have to pack!
