Well, this was it. The couple from "Excellent Cleaning" came over one last time. They did a final once over of everything and vacuumed and scrubbed everything down. Even some things I wouldn't have thought of cleaning.
Then after they were gone, I stood there for a bit, and looked at my old apartment to say goodbye. I went through every room, thinking about things that had happened there over the years. It was sad. And yes, I teared up a little. OK, the place wasn't much. Just basic housing. But it had been home for almost seven years. Sniff.
I locked the door one last time, went to the leasing office, turned in the keys and headed out. One last stop at the post office to return the mailbox keys, and that was that. I am no longer a Quail Ridge resident.
Of course, I still have to pay rent for two more months. But that's how these things go when you leave before the end of your lease. Oh well!
So now I think I'm 100% Yardlean. Or however you say a person from Yardley. Or Lower Makefield. Or whatever. :-)
