Our house is finally on the market! If you know anyone who is looking for a very nice house in the San Francisco Bay area have a look at our listing. The house is convenient to 880 and is in a very quiet gated community.
Getting the house ready was an enormous undertaking. We painted the whole house, installed new hardwood in our bonus room, put new carpet throughout the house, and moved all our stuff out. Once we were out the stagers came in. For any of you who have been to our house you won’t recognize the transformation. For one thing there is no longer a pool table in the living room!
I was able to work with Duke to do a lot of the work but he had to finish it himself starting three weeks ago when I came down to Escondido to help Dad take care of my Mom. Every day she gets a little weaker. She can’t talk now and she is having trouble swallowing. Mom still seems aware of much that is being said and of what is going on around her. We don’t know how long this will last but except for breaks when my daughters or siblings come I’ll stay until the end. I’m taking one day at a time and am just glad I can be here for her.
While I have been down here Duke got the old house on the market and has started moving us into our new house in Reno. Long phone conversations about the house and the move have given me a respite from thinking about things here. My daughters and my sisters and brother have also been wonderfully supportive. My sisters were here last week. My brother comes again next week and my daughters have plans to come too.
