The house across the street from me is being demolished -- not because it was run down or falling down, not because it was beyond repair. Truth is, a builder is hoping an empty lot will sell better than a house that needs attention. So sad. I let myself get worked up over this and have finally settled down. The demo crew said they thought the house had jinxed them -- that it wasn't ready to come down. It's taking three times longer than they thought. Yea was what I thought.
Old dirt smells so bad. It's amazing how bad it smells. It smells almost as bad as tearing down a perfectly good house.
