It was now 3:45. They'd already come and gone.
Okay, so, it had been just hours short of the house being on the market for a full week with no interest, and by this time we'd all started getting a little complacent about keeping our messes cleaned up. We had gone back to dragging out boxes and emptying closet contents, and, well, let's just say the place didn't look much like the MLS photos any more. Looking around the house and pretending I'd never seen it before, I was embarrassed! LOL I was using our nice jacuzzi garden tub in the master bathroom to soak fondant off of several styro cake dummies, which is a slippery, messy thing. I was soaking a three-tier blue one and a four-tier brown one, so it was truly yucky looking. I wonder what those people thought when they looked in the tub!
Our dog, Tate, was in her crate as usual when we all leave the house, so she seemed unphased. The budgies, though, were in a state. I hope it was because they were having a fight between themselves, and not because somebody came in and pestered the poor things. I'm going to put a sign on their cage asking people to leave them alone, just in case.
So, lesson learned. No more taking breaks from keeping the house clean! Hopefully more people will come to see the house this weekend and a buyer will come along soon.
