Watt & Shand

We felt we’d cleaned enough where we were comfortable giving tours, so we invited Dale and Suzanne (of Forgotten Seasons B&B) over. Suzanne took home a Watt & Shand box (a now defunct department store) that was in the trash pile. Apparently, we weren’t erring enough on the side of caution.

Tomorrow, after a traditional New Year’s dinner of pork and sauerkraut, we’re flying back to L.A. I can tell these trips are very stressful for Dawn’s mom – a lot of change is in store – but I can’t really do anything for her. I try to tell her everything that’s going on, but Dawn says I’m giving her too much information and freaking her out even more.
