October 15, 2021 Yesterday, we cleared out the last of the stuff from the house. One of my friends bought the TV and entertainment cabinet. It felt so strange to see the house completely empty. We signed the closing paperwork this morning, got a cashiers check, and the house is no longer ours. We headed […]Read More The House Is Now Sold!
