It is always exciting when you move to a new house, everything but the packing. And Sunday it was time to take Dad by the new house. He looked around and inspected everything with his precision eye…making sure everything was in line and right.
The basement, the most important thing and what he was the most excited about. And he went down. It is not perfect, but we can make it work. We can make it work with his workshop, with a few moderation. Add some light fixtures, get some extension chords. And there is plenty of room not only for his workshop, but for storage as well.
He likes his new room. It is big and has enough space for whatever he wants to put in there. He can have a little office as well. The deck is being worked on, and will be ready by the time we move in.
It is not perfect, but it is great. And it will be a great place for us.The house we are in now has been wonderful – the Rescue House. It rescued me from me from the House of Mold, it rescued my boyfriend and became a place of love, and now it rescued my Dad and has become his home too.
The new house will be a place of new beginnings. And it is my privilege to have Dad with us, starting this new life with us. I am a lucky woman. And I feel Mom smiling.
