Hello!

Wow! I just noticed it's been longer than I thought since my last post. We have been so busy packing up Mom's house, it sold very quickly and we have to turn over the key at close, end of this month. It's amazing the amount of things accumulated in the last 52 years. It has been an emotional time for us sisters and Mom, sorting, tossing, packing; the stress level raises pretty high at times, but it's to be expected. She is moving into a very nice complex, with a lot less worry. It's subsidised housing which makes it easier for her to afford. The building is beautiful with all ameities right there. It's going to be hard handing over the key, and we're all prepared to cry. The people who bought the house are so nice, and have a passion for it. That makes it easier somewhat knowing it isn't going to anyone who want to turn it into a rental.
I will post more tomorrow!

How hard that must be. My Mom and Dad still live in the house that I grew up in and it would be so hard to see that go. I was very close to my aunt and uncle and when they passed away and I was in their house empty right before it sold, I just stood there and ctied. How we get attached to an inamimate object. The memories are still very strong though. Good Luck, I'll be thinking of you!

This has to be very hard but it will soon be over. A home is so much a part of you. Hang in there, Laurie.

I was wondering what happened to you? What a job indeed! It takes a lot of time I'm sure. Sorry your Mom has to leave her home, it must be lots of stress for her. But thank goodness she has daughters like you to help her. Good luck hon

I've walked in those shoes you are walking in now. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your mom and your sister. So glad the new owners have a passion for the house. That certainly will help with the transition. HUGZ
