Endings and Beginnings

Friday I walked out of our duplex for the last time. Ever.

It was so weird and uneventful. Well I guess the combined 48 hours* of cleaning we put into it before we finally walked out wasn’t exactly uneventful, but you get the picture.

Now, we are here. On the other side of town, with a somewhat new feeling life and new open doors.

More rooms.
More space.
More places to escape to, namely the backyard which is currently under construction.

I think it’s going to be good.

*Seriously. 48 hours. If we don’t get at least part of that deposit back after 6 years I might just go through the roof. Because #1- we were there for 6 years. #2- FORTY EIGHT hours of cleaning! And #3- 6 years! Nothing had been updated in at least 10 years (the previous renters had been there for 4 years). I seriously question the fact that I am being asked to wash 10 year old mini-blinds (I’m guessing they were more in the 15-20 years old range) in the bathtub or incur a charge for $22 per blind. That, is bullshit.
