Here and There and Everywhere
03 May 2012 | Halifax
Alex, sunny !!
Our house is starting to look,
pretty DARN empty.
Living room and dining room are just, well,
empty rooms and quite bare.
Which is a good thing.
Except for the piles.
Piles going here and piles going there.
Piles going everywhere.
Our things are selling in a timely manner.
All things considering.
Which is an even better thing.
Sell some stuff here, sell some stuff there.
Selling stuff everywhere !
Our posessions are starting to dwindle.
Which is kind of a funny thing.
Dwindle here, dwindle there,
It's nice to meet the folks who are buying what was once our stuff,
but has now become their stuff.
And helping them pack it away into respective cars and trucks.
And watch it all drive away. Down the street.
But all with a smile, as we know this brings us closer to our goals.
And nice to know that everything is going to a good home.
But still feels kind of funny.
Funny here, funny there,
And then you pick up a memento. A photo.
A lock of baby's hair. A set of first teeth lost.
The first letter my kids wrote to Santa.
Memories of times long gone,
but not forgotten.
And it feels sort of sad.
A tear here, a tear there.
A few tears everywhere.
Which leads to hugs. A hug here, a hug there.
Lots of hugs everywhere.
So between the piling and the selling and the dwindling and the hugging and the crying, we're having a fun ole time !!
