My home, my own!

As we consider where the future might take us, Nathan thought – This might be the last house we own!  I don’t know if that will be true, but right now I am enjoying this house being MY house.  We have decided to take the house off the public market while waiting to see if a private sale might work, and it is SUCH A RELIEF.  Wow.  I hadn’t really realized how having to keep the house clean for potential buyers was taking up mindspace.  “Note to self: wash that wall.” “Note to self: clear out that closet.” etc, etc.  The last week has felt like the house was on one of those hideous reality shows, and the tv crews finally left!  I cleaned my floor- for myself!  I left a pile of books on that table – because it was most convenient for me!  It’s my house again, and I am enjoying it.  Ahhh….it’s also been especially nice because last week I was so sick I couldn’t leave my bed and I didn’t have to worry about the laundry piling up for a few days, I just did it when I was up again.

Of course, it was nice having the house so clean and tidy but I think even with a little more mess, it will be more peaceful.  I won’t be quite so aggravated when the children empty the bookshelf onto the playroom floor (this morning) or make a “house” out of every available stuffed animal (also this morning, same corner as books).  I haven’t even yelled at them about it, just said “You’ll be cleaning that up soon.”  Ah.  My house.
