I've gotten completely hooked on this show. I'm now going to get all the seasons from Netflix and drive my poor husband crazy. I think the most disturbing part of the show though is that the "narcissistic cool dad" reminds me of a couple of my ex-boyfriends and makes me roll my eyes at my incredibly bad taste. One in particular named Brad comes to mind. He was one of those boys I dated for three months or four months and I was so sure we were meant to be and now eighteen years later I've no clue whatever happened to him. But I have a feeling he's kind of like "cool dad". =shudder=
So, a silly tv show is helping me relax as it hit me this morning that in exactly two weeks the moving van is showing up for us to move out of our house. I told my daughter's school when her last day is and set up a tour with her of her new school next week and am making lists of everything we need to cancel and all the places we need to change our address and it's kind of overwhelming. We've lived in this house for over ten years and so much has happened here. It's the only house our daughter has ever known (except for two months when we lived in "temporary house" while this house was being remodeled when she was two years old). I starting learning about organic gardening in my garden and I've spent god knows how many hours working on the yard. We did HUGE amounts of work to this house - building retaining walls and bringing in trees and plants and creating my big organic vegetable garden, and finishing the entire basement (which I taped, mudded and sanded almost all by myself when I was in my third trimester of pregnancy). We have really loved this house. So it is bittersweet to be selling it to a couple who has complained endlessly about what horrible shape the house is in and how much we're not doing for them and how they're paying way too much. Since we've never met them I'm really hoping that outside of buying/selling negotiation they are telling their friends how excited they are because all we've heard is how negligent we are and that we're trying to pull something over them or something (???). So, I'm feeling a little bit of guilt for the house that it may not be loved by the new owners like we have loved it. Then I have to remind myself that it is a house - not an animal or sentient being.
