We're Out of the House!

Well, it's official.  We are now both happily unemployed and happily homeless.  Maybe we should apply for some government benefits...?

As of now, we are out of the house, and it feels very freeing.  Scratch that (like this, dummy!), it makes us feel very tired, but eventually we believe it will feel freeing.  We are writing this from the comfort of a hotel room in town that we actually sprung the cash for.  Yikes, but it feels good to know that we have nothing left to do in the house and can be comfortable for our last night in town.

Last night in town.  That feels strange to write here.  We have already had a lot of "lasts" in the last (hah!) few weeks, but this is one of the very last "lasts" to feel.  Huh...

Before we left the house, we took some photos of the emptiness.  Follow the jump for the full gallery.

The garden shed stands with green ivy covering the side facing the house

The green shelves stand alone in the basement

The bar and freezer are empty in the basement

The sump pump has mostly personal emotional significance

This room is behind the bar area of the basement.  The shelf is empty.
