House for sale

My mother's house has a sign out in front. The kind of sign that says "For Sale".
I can't seem to catch my breath when I think about it. I can't seem to swallow, I can't seem to keep the tears from falling.
I want to scream.

*Note to say, that intellectually, I know it is just a house. I know it has to be done. My siblings have worked so hard at getting it ready and i'm grateful to them.*

I've been thinking of you. It's been almost 3 months now for me, and I've been in tears more often over the past week than I cried the entire first month. We can't time our reactions or our emotions, and the littlest (and BIG) things set us off. Selling the house will be a biggie for me, too. {{HUGS}} to you.

That's got to be tough. Especially living so near.

Green Girl - I'm actually two states away...about a 9 hour drive. If I was living in the area, I'd probably try to somehow buy the house. But I probably couldn't afford it :(

Don't think I haven't thought about trying to buy it! I see the sign multiple times a day; and I feel it an insult to your mom and the wonderful life she made there that it wasn't snatched up the first day. I'm definitely hanging out at that open house tomorrow.
