Jim’s Pic A Day May: 31 – The Finale

20120531-150114.jpg

This is a picture of the last place we will (hopefully) ever rent: The Hamlet.

It was the House we moved into last summer, May 2011, when our life kind of fell apart:

We had to move out of the house we were renting (Chez Breen) that we had lived in for 2.5 years, grown to love and actually hoped to buy one day.

My best friend, child and companion, Clyde, was put to sleep due to untreatable health complications.

I turned 40.

I came down with a mysterious fevered illness that lasted nearly 2 months.

Today is the end of our one year lease and, although we moved out in the beginning of February, over 3 months ago (into Breen Acres), we have been responsible for the Hamlet’s continual upkeep, rent, lawn, snow removal, utilities and security.

We were (as we always have been) perfect tenants. The place is spotless, the lawn is mowed, the rent was paid early up to and including our final month.

I am glad to be done with this place after today.

Anyhoo, it seems fitting that this be the final picture of this Month’s Blog Challenge. It marks closure on the time BBA and BHMB (Before Breen Acres and before Harvey Milk Breen). It ends our financial and legal responsibility to the property and allows us to move completely forward with our new life in our new home with our new dog.

I want to thank Jim from Jim’s Stuff for starting this blog challenge. It has been fun.

    The picture and the mixed emotions in what you say brought a lump to my throat. It felt very real. Anyway, as you imply, time to move on.
    It’s been fun following your ‘pic of the day’ postings. A varied selection indeed. Thanks, S/b.

  3. And happy new month starting!
