House for Rent

It feels strange seeing the For Rent sign in front of our house.

How can there be so much work yet to be accomplished in an empty house? After the movers left we still had plenty to do get our house ready for showing as a rental property. We’ve hired cleaners to get it in tip top shape. We met with the property manager to go over the details of renting the house.

But there were still items stashed in the kitchen pantry, drawers and cabinets. Still items left to go to charity. Still trash to be collected. Still items destined for recycling bins. Still items to be stored in our attic.

Finally, this afternoon we finished going through the house one last time and felt we were ready to lock up, go to the hotel and prepare for the long journey ahead of us.

While packing my bags I remembered that I’d left one last fudgcicle in the freezer. What will our future tenants think?
