A strange thing happened to me last night. We’ve been cleaning the house out for the last few months, getting everything ready for 6 months away. I’ve had a list of things that I need to do right before we leave. I created this list 2 months ago, and have been slowly tackling each item as it comes. The last part of the list has been sitting stagnent for quite a while as it contains things that we have to do at the end.
Last night, I checked off two of the “end” items. I unplugged the fridge in the basement and I also unplugged all of our outdoor lights. Sounds simple enough right? I was hit with a wave of emotion as I was pulling out those plugs. Excitement, nerves, wonder, and even a little sadness (for a second!) came rushing in. This is really happening. I felt like I got hit by a truck. A nice truck.
I wasn’t expecting that reaction from unplugging a fridge. Life is funny that way.
