The time has come to take leave of our apartment. Kind of a sad good-bye, but we won't miss the speed bumps! This has been such a comfortable place to live and has accommodated all of our family as they came to visit.
So today was the day that all of our boxes were transferred to the mission home garage, compliments of the Office Elders. They popped up and down the 19 stairs, taking 2 or 3 at a time, like it was nothing. That left an almost empty apartment to be cleaned till it "shined like the top of the Chrysler Building!"
I know how to clean but don't usually do it all in one day and am pretty out of practice. When I asked Elder L to clean the top of the refrigerator and he asked me if he should use a wet or dry cloth, I knew we'd both be happier if he was "running errands:)" Besides the usual activities I managed to do baseboards and window sills, switch plates and wall plates, cupboard shelves, doors and drawers, door frames, panels and knobs, and who knows what else. Then we (more like Marc--his best contribution) shampooed our way out the door.
Now #1004 is ready for the Lawes to move in on Monday.
