spic and span

I have been cleaning my house for the better part of the last twelve hours.


And ignoring the fact that it still isn't done, I feel pretty good about it. I moved around a bunch of stuff, got rid of a pile of crap I've never liked and just generally puttered around. My mom left her super duper vacuum here and I put that baby to good use. You can take paint off the walls with that thing. (Or clean up after three heavily shedding dogs).


What prompted this? you may ask. This doesn't sound like my "put my feet up and stuff my face with popcorn while I read a book in one sitting" plan, I know.


But I wasn't counting on the absolutely out of the blue phone call from a friend asking if she could bring someone over to look at our house. Someone who is apparently very interested in buying it. Sight unseen. Someone I've never even met.


They're coming today. Cross your fingers. Please.


Did I mention that little bungalow around the corner is back on the market after the sale fell through?

As a friend of mine always says, there are no accidents.

I hope things go the way you hope. Although, it seems bitter sweet, with the way you love that house.

BUT, sounds cliche, but a home is really the people who live in it. I know no matter what house you live in, you and the boys (and the dogs) will be happy and full of love (and adventures)!
