Do you think that “other people’s dirt” is dirtier than your “own dirt”?
The Sweetwater Son and Girlfriend moved into their wonderful new house last Friday!
Yippee for them!
Yippee for us because that meant that all the furniture they were buying on Craig’s List and storing in our garage left us for it’s new home..
Now all that is left are the Sweetwater Daughter’s Law Office furniture which is leaving tomorrow!
Are you ready for the “dirty story”?
Well….moving day was also MY BIRTHDAY!
And….what would any good mother do on her birthday if her offspring’s new house had a lot of “other people’s dirt”?
Yup …..get DOWN and DIRTY….and get rid of that dirt!
We actually had fun scrubbing and polishing and wiping away the remains of the previous owner’s leftover dirt! It wasn’t filthy…..but it was “other people’s dirt” ….so it needed to be wiped away!
We ended the evening standing around in the kitchen scarfing down some really great take-out food and toasting the new homeowners as they surveyed their new digs….
Best Birthday ever…to see your kids settling in to a great new home….and having them want you to be a part of it!
Look at the lovely view through the cobwebs on the screens…….maybe someday!
No, this isn’t a preview from “Hoarders”! It is the closet that stores all the holiday decorations….
I really need to get in there before December to have access to all that stuff when I need it!
Look at the great pile of dirt I found when I was dragging the kitten out from behind the washing machine….oh my!
With a little more time, I could probably find you more…..
I guess you could call this “House Pornography” if this wasn’t a family friendly blog!
I would like to believe that I can remember one of the guiding principles of Sweetwater Style….
Here is a great quote I found that expresses exactly how I feel about this topic!
