Well, if everything goes well with these tenants I won't have another chance to move back to my house until next March. It will be interesting to see how much the utility bills actually are for 8 people. I hope I estimated correctly. The tenants are thrilled with the house and I hope they enjoy staying there. It is really too big for just one person. I felt kind of selfish living there all alone. I only really lived in half of it.
I stayed up late last night taking pictures off of the walls and bagging blankets and sheets. This morning I cashed their check and this afternoon I spent another hour trying to stuff everything on to my truck so that I wouldn't have to make 2 trips. This all happened so fast, I hope I made the right decision to rent out the house. Now I will focus on making my mobile home and RV more livable. That means making the water collection system easier to use and maybe moving the washer and dryer inside the mobile home instead of in the garage.
Since I don't have to worry about renting the house maybe I can get back to organizing, selling some stuff, practicing those airbrushed flames that I still have to do, and maybe even make a craft for next year's Christmas season. I doubt that last one will happen. Weekends just fly by. I honestly don't think I will have time to get back in to any artistic activity until I quit my day job. Maybe 5 years or so. Still so far away but I'm making progress.
