The movers arrived in Boulder on Wednesday and all our stuff was packed up and moved out to head to Baltimore by 8pm Thursday night. I won’t even get into the tears and emotions we all had wandering around our vacant house on Friday. It’s too raw and sad for us.
We put our Boulder house on the market on August 5th or so and have barely had 2 showings. Broker says bad time, vacations, back to school, etc. etc, but, I kept feeling like – Ugh! we should have skipped our Nantucket vacation the last two weeks of June/July 4 and gotten the house on the market at the beginning of July. Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda. I was feeling pretty down about it until I looked through my photos from that vacation – nope, we needed every sweet, poignant, fulfilling moment we had there.
Nantucket is stunningly beautiful and you can’t help but relax in its beautiful vistas and vignettes.
which is especially important for me!
Now, it’s on to new adventures. We arrived in Baltimore yesterday. We close on our new house on Tuesday. Kids start school Wednesday. Our stuff arrives Thursday. All lined up like a perfect set of dominos. Help me hope for them all to fall in a nice, neat little row . . .
