We rented out our house for a year, June 1 to June 1. Last summer was spent at the cabin and in August, we moved to Puerto Vallarta. We lived in two different apartments during our 8 months down there and since our return to Juneau in April, we have been housesitting.
So, finally, we are back in our house. It is a practical place, a townhouse with a small yard, oil heat and a two car garage. It is next to a tame little park with a duck pond. But after living out of boxes, with clothes piled on other people's dressers, it feels real good to be home again and unpacked.
