We don't ever seem to do anything the easy or normal way. Gerry is taking serious risks covering the floods in SC and I am selling our house. What great timing!
Docu-sign is a marvel, he has signed all the contracts electronically while floating around on flood rivers...
He told me some stories of places he went and people he got in boats with on flooded rivers...... and it was worrisome. Glad he is heading home tonight!
I've been looking through old photos on my hard drive for some nice photos of how my studio looked before I started filling it with boxes and boxes and boxes. It was such a soothing place to work and now it stresses me out just to walk by it. I came across this one. Wesley and Tyler having lunch on the foundation before the walls went up. What a very special day that was..... now neither are here with me.
In fact, no one has been here for days. Its been pretty lonely around here, but I have had a lot of last minute staging to do to get our house ready for listing, so at least I was busy. I haven't stopped from morning until night. Painting, taking things to storage, grouting, carpet cleaning, moving furniture around, packing. Oh my God, the work it takes to sell a house you have lived in for ten years! If I have to clean up one more hair in that white bathroom of ours I am going to come unglued!
I sold my kiln yesterday. I seem to only be saying goodbye to things. I'm sort of ready for some new things to happen that I can say hello to.
Gerry worked like crazy covering the flooding in SC. He made the front page of the New York Times the other day. Very proud of him, those don't come along every day, but he has had a few of them. He said several times how nice the people are in South Carolin and how much he liked it there. Well, duh, you married a girl from there, haha!
Another one bowl lonely meal...... at least I have beautiful pottery to eat out of. I sure miss my family sitting down to a meal with me at night, talking about their day, sharing stories. Wesley is liking her job, liking California, so I suppose I should be happy about that at least.
I do know this. I am so very grateful to have a house that is clean and dry and cozy. I was fussing about how dirty the bathroom was the other day, then remembered all the folks that don't have a house right now and I remembered to be grateful. Prayers for those in the floods, my heart is heavy for my fellow South Carolinians......
