This is what my mother heard last night walking up the stairs one last time in the “old” house. Of course it was difficult to hear over the sound of her heart pounding because today is moving day, but she heard it, loud and clear. She could not walk on it at all. I was afraid that she tore something. She was afraid she broke something. It turns out that she sprained something and it feels a lot better today. But today they actually have movers in their houses taking their things…….away….away….away. from a big house to a much smaller one. And they are running out of room.
