Well, as of 7:15 last evening, Thrums End is no longer and I am in the new space. I was absolutely exhausted by the end of that grueling day- and the end of a horrible, long process. But, my new neighbors had other ideas- there was someone cleaning the sidewalk across the street with a power washer & generator until 10:30 at night... The light coming into the apartment from the street lights was terrible and also kept me up (today, I need to get louvered blinds for all the street-front windows,) and the former tenants left cat smells untreated... I was not happy. I need to take many actions today for my own comfort and serenity. One of them was having the computer, cable and telephone all hooked up- yippee!!!! A good go-round with an enzymatic cat-odor remover has been done.

The installation took the entire morning so now I need to go out and get my errands run- then I need to take a good nap.

I meant to take pictures of the remains of Thrums End but my camera's battery was dead... perhaps the message is that I need to just move forward.

On the recommendation of my dog school couch I switched from ammonia based cleaners to citrus based cleaners. The result was that ‘accident’ smells quickly dispelled and were not later reactivated. They also do a decent job on the clean up. The dog is gone now, but I still use the citrus cleaners.

The blinds sound like a good idea.
