I have 20 days to get my house packed up and ready for closing on May 2. [Deep breath!]
I cannot believe this is finally happening! I feel like I’ve been talking about it for so long and waiting for this buyer to come along — and now it’s reality.
There might be a little bit of denial happening — that I am actually leaving my house of 9 1/2 years and my hometown of 14 years. If I think about it, I get real sad, so I don’t think about the reality of it and just press forward with all the work at hand. Just so you know, 20 days from now, I’m going to be a wreck.
That said, if you have some free time in the next 2 1/2 weeks and would like to come pack some boxes, make trips to the recycling center or Goodwill, dig out the crap from the window wells around my house, or just make me a vegetarian dinner, feel free.
Also, if there is something that you’ve been contemplating buying (like a hammock), check with me. I might give it to you in exchange for moving my stuff into a POD the last weekend of April.
