The tenants paid the rent today, and I handed them two keys, and the garage door opener. The majority of my waking hours during the last three weeks have been about preparing mom’s mainland house for occupation. There are still items on the list, but nothing that keeps these folks from moving in, and nothing that they weren’t willing to sign off on. While I am emotionally weary, there is a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders. Maybe, if it’s not raining too hard, I will pull dandelions in our garden tomorrow.
