I am trying to sell my house — a new adventure for me. This is the only home I have owned, so I have never sold one before. We moved back to my husband’s hometown after he was diagnosed with cancer and had been through a number of treatments. He wanted me to have a place to call home if anything happened to him. As a result, we moved back to Ohio in 2002 and I have lived in this house ever since. Sadly, my husband passed away in 2004. With his many visits and stays at NIH for treatment he was hardly ever here. When he passed, there weren’t a lot of lingering memories for me to deal with. I stayed here because it was a great house — very safe and comfortable.
I love this house. I wish I could move it to my hometown — my next destination. But I can’t, so it has gone on the market. I hope the next couple/family/individual who lives here creates as many fond memories as I have had. My backyard is the best! I have spent much time hula hooping there and just hanging with my dogs. Letting go isn’t easy, but it has to happen in order to move forward into this next phase of my life.
