It has been too long since I’ve blogged. That’s what moving to a new home after 30 years will cause – upending-the-blog chaos.
Hubby and I are in our new home, still working on getting settled. You know what? It feels an awful lot like the months we spent getting our old house ready to sell. That means I can continue using the image tag “House Excavations” at the top of this post for a while longer.
While we found items in our old house that had fallen into the walls, in our new house we have found all sorts of things that were inadvertently left behind. There were pots and baking pans and other random items left in the kitchen, lightbulbs under the bathroom sink, bath towels on the back of a bathroom door, a few random cleaners under sinks and in the laundry room, some games in the basement, and a giant pile of garbage in the garage.
Y’all, is it a thing to accidentally leave so much behind when moving out of a house? I mean, aside from the garbage, which we’re pretty sure was left because the previous owner didn’t have time to get it out before having to leave. And we know much of this stuff was accidentally left because we’ve had a request to return it to the previous owner.
Are Erik and I just weird? When we were obsessively finishing home improvements and cleaning our house for sale, we went through ever cupboard and closet multiple times to make sure we hadn’t left anything that we didn’t intend to leave behind.
Do we all have so much stuff now that it’s difficult to move without forgetting things? I suspect the answer to that is, “Yes.”
(I am feeling much better now that I’ve blogged. I’ve missed this place!)
