We are now packing. The reality of our decision has smacked us in the face!
Selling a home on a deadline is sort of like a family reunion: you can plan the event to death, but once the process begins it takes on a life of its own.
The amount of packing materials one needs is staggering. Thankfully we received a HUGE amount of boxes courtesy of our former employer and Gary's sons current employer. Yet I needed a ton of smaller boxes.....we own an alarming amount of books. So off to town for them. And yes, I bought them at Home Despot before I was aware of all the political issues......at this point, I'm using them.
Yesterday I filled every one of those smaller boxes and relocated them to storage. I think I packed most of the heaviest stuff yesterday. I'm actually looking forward to packing the studio contents as those will be blissfully lighter boxes.
I was contemplating a fire sale for fiber I wish to downsize, and I will do that eventually. It makes more sense to do that later rather than now. So instead of packing my vendor booth in the truck for CO, we loaded it up for storage. It will be in the verrrrrry back of our enormous unit until we have a home again.
