I really love the vacation house in which we are staying this week. It is our second time here and I love its history (former home of Washington State’s first female doctor), its layout (3 bedrooms, huge living room/dining room, great kitchen & amazing pantry), its proximity to the Puget Sound (just out the front window) and the fact that it has everything anyone would need for a relaxing vacation. I love that Clare and her partner are visiting later this week for an early Thanksgiving celebration.
What I don’t love, however, are the noises I hear at night coming from the restricted second story. I don’t love the long walk down the dark hallway to the bathroom in the middle of the night. I don’t love knowing the basement is huge and scary (and also off-limits).
We’re here Halloween night. Spooky.
