Our last day

I watched Fawlty Towers with Mom and Dad. I also did their laundry. Mom packed. I bought a few more things. I hope it does not put their luggage over weight. It's only candy and coffee. But who could leave Germany with out chocolate and gummy bears? Philip is playing rummy with Grandpa. Philip is winning. Nicole is trying to draw Mom. It's hard to get her right. I'm trying not to think about goodbye. Just going though the motions. I'll save the tears for tomorrow. I'm just grateful for this time we had together. We got one good offer for a renter in Leimen. They can not rent until August. We would lose another 3 months rent. But it's a University Professor. We need to decide if we want to rent to them. I'm inclined to just say yes. We might be able to find someone sooner, but there is no guarantee. We have already lost allot of money. It makes me sick. But I would be grateful just to move past this...to have a good renter. I think we should bite our lip and just say yes. In the mean time we can paint, wall paper, replace floors, maybe even doors. Anything, and everything to make the house perfect. Perhaps it would make them want to stay long term. I'm sad we did not rent last fall when we had the chance. It's been a very humbling experience. I’m sure it was all for a good reason. I may never know why, but I hope I can just let go of everything that has been lost. It’s water under the bridge. I love my new house. I’m happy we moved. I love my new garden. The whole thing cost much more then we had hoped! But the
time loss has been the worst thing.
