Finally got the keys to our house - YAY! The previous owner was renting from us since March and had a hard time letting go. She is a nice (very) old lady, sharp as a whip, and funny. She brought up three children in the house and had a very successful career in real estate - a good omen for me! Now that the house is empty we can see clearly the amount of work there is to be done and it is a bit overwhelming. Have to tackle everything step by step... Anyway, we are so happy that the work can now begin!
