Just like all good things must come to an end, some bad things eventually end too! Yesterday after dropping Chad and Nicole off at the airport in Abilene, we stopped by the rental and cleaned it up. Before we got there, I asked Vince how long we’d have to spend and he said he hoped about an hour. Make that . . 3 hours!
Then I scrubbed the stove top, wiped down the microwave, then polished the granite counter tops and wiped the cabinets down with Murphy’s Oil Soap. I also vacuumed the three upstairs bedrooms but didn’t take pictures of those rooms.
When we left, I said to Vince “See! I’m a much better cleaner than packer. I worked without whining and complaining.” He said “Yep, I didn’t fire you, did I?”
We’re officially done there and as we drove away, I remembered how happy we were to have found that rental . . til we realized the air conditioner didn’t cool the house, there were some extremely noisy neighbors, and then we experienced two flooding incidents — one from rain water draining through the basement and one from a water pipe in between level 1 and level 2 breaking. Living there wasn’t comfortable with the cooling situation and every time it rained, we wondered if things in the basement would get wet.
We ended up with a great home so in the end, we’re happy but those months in the rental were not easy ones and we’re very happy to close that chapter!
