So as many of you know, we are trying to rent out our house so we can move in with my parents and save money for law school. We have had our house on the mark et for a month now, and we're hoping that magical person shows up soon who will want to rent it! Yesterday we got a call from our realtor that someone was going to come look at the house between 12 and 1 today. So last night Mark and I spent time cleaning carpet spots, packing boxes, wiping down mirrors, and moving stuff into the garage to make our house look emptier and bigger. This morning I spent several more hours cleaning and wiping down and organizing (as well as taking care of Natalie, the wonder baby who does not nap on the days mommy really needs her to). So 12 rolls around....then 1, and this person hasn't shown up. Arrrrg! Now it's 2:30 and still, they haven't come. bummer! To look on the bright side of things though, at least my house is clean. Now I can sit here and post on my blog without feeling guilty. :-)
We got our backyard "landscaped" aka "covered the ground with decorative rock" so we don't have a backyard full of dirt for potential tenants. Devin, the expert rock guy (his summer job was shoveling rock) came over to help. Thanks Dev! It looks much nicer now and it was just in time too--the next day someone came and looked at the house.
