Have you ever watched the TLC program called Moving Up? Basically it lets former homeowners take a step inside their old homes to see what the new people have done with it. The reactions are often quite passionate - on both sides (the old & new homeowners). I've always thought that an opportunity like that would be interesting.
Well, today I got a little dose of Moving Up.
A friend e-mailed me a link that contained pictures of our old house. The new lady there has set up a day-care in our/her home. During the selling process we heard she planned to take on a few daycare kids. But I had no idea she was going to turn the house & yard into a full-on daycare center.
The colors are still the same. (my colors). The flooring is still the same. Our curtains are still hanging in the dining room - the curtains that I made.
And there are toys and bookcases and posters all over the place.
After viewing the pics, I'm just a little bit dazed. And my heart aches just a teeny bit. Now, I'm by no means anywhere near the fits of anger or tears that people on that show display. But I just have to admit that it is an interesting feeling.
I would post the link to the photos, but I don't want my blog address appearing on her website stats over & over again. So if you really want to see it, mention it in your comment and be sure to leave your e-mail address.
*Oh, and if you need a refresher, here's what the house looked like when we lived there.
