Well, today we went to sign the contract to sell our house. I'm absolutely in shock. I have mixed feelings, of course, but mostly, it feels good to know we won't be waiting for months or years to sell. I think the fact that we maintained it so well over the years mostly because of Geoff and because of my amazing design and decorating abilities :-) our house showed pretty well. Or, maybe we just listed it at the right time and the right buyers happened to be looking at the right time.
Geoff saw the family when they first looked at the house and he recognized them from the UU church. At least we know they probably won't be putting Chief Illiniwek memorabilia in the yard and if their kids are gay or date someone from a different culture, they'll probably have a safe haven in the home.
All the pieces of our life together continue to fall away one at a time. It's less devastating than it was but every time is still like a punch in the stomach. I have to remember that it's for the best. We'll both be happier.
