The contractor has finished the renovation of my mom’s house. Next is putting it up for sale. The bathroom cabinets, sinks and faucets were replaced, the shower door glass was replaced, the carpet was replaced, the inside and outside of the house was painted and the landscaping was converted to what people mistakenly call desert landscaping (hint…it’s gravel).
I have used the book metaphor for a life before. “The End” was written in dad’s book nearly 13 years earlier and the same was written in mom’s book back in November. After the house sells, their books will receive a short addendum and then will join the books of my grandparents and my fiancee.
