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!
