last week in the house, we hope

Posted on July 17, 2006. Filed under: Family |

We are supposed to be out of the house by the 31st, but I think it will be this weekend. Which means I still have to buy a bed and get my life reorganized at that end. I’m sure it will take some time — but I hope that we’ll have our high speed (yay, no more dial up) hooked up shortly after moving in.

I can’t believe we may only be in here for another week longer. When I was a kid — from about grade 1-grade 7, my best friend in the whole wide world lived in this house. She then moved to Switzerland and, while we didn’t buy the house then, we bought it from the people who had.

Now we’re moving BACK to the house that I actually grew up in, though it’s been entirely rebuilt. It was my grandparents house, and we used to live in the apartment. I am looking forward to being there because, while there are some memories attached to this house, there are more at the other location. I can still turn around, away from the front window and see the house exactly how it was. I can picture my grandparents there. And it’s nice. I really truly believe they would be impressed with what my parents have built and, as my grandma already called it her palace, it now really looks like a castle. Something she would have loved and deserved to have.

I dedicate the house to their memory.
