Did you see it?


Today we scrambled to get the house ready since our realtor 
wanted to take some photos of Fox Hill. 
About two hours before they showed up,
 Claire decided it was a good idea to empty her whole 
room onto the floor and begin organizing.
I went upstairs to check on the girls and I
walked into their room and then I lost it.
In a huge pile in the middle of her room was 
everything she ever owned on the ground.
After I "expressed" my feelings, I walked out of the room and heard
Claire said to Jane:
"She had fire coming out of her mouth, did you see it?"
Then they giggled and giggled.
But they finished up their room just in time and were vacuuming when
the photographer rang the door bell.  We did it!
Mr. Nielson must have carried 500 heavy boxes to the basement for me,
which means that I must have packed up 500 boxes,
and our beautiful Fox Hill is now officially for sale.
I took the Little Nies out to dinner and we ate it at the park.
We laughed about how uptight I was today,
and we lamented about selling Fox Hill, but we also 
talked about how excited we are to move too.
Lots of emotions.


Happy August!
