Sort update - no time for more.
We live surrounded by boxes and yet even as I open drawers and cabinets - I see things that need to go into a box. Yikes!!
To keep my sanity and health, I decided it is ok to have some items left behind after moving day. After all, I have to return to clean up and prepare the townhouse for sale - I can retrieve stray items during those visits. That is a huge concession from a type-A personality like me.
My body is very very tired. My brain is going in a million different directions. Rest periods during the day are the only way I continue to move forward. Last week I had a full day that ended up as the rest period. The energy it takes to keep moving forward is owned by a far younger person than I am.
We settle this Friday morning on the condo. Starting that afternoon family and friends will be helping me move the extraneous items (and there are a bunch), that don't fit in boxes or are best moved by loving hands. Saturday and Sunday there will be more of that kind of moving - with the professional movers coming on Sunday morning for the furniture and the boxes - 72 boxes so far.
I keep thinking that by Monday - a week from today - we will be moved in to the condo, but reality forces me to accept that we will be moved in completely (not unpacked), by the following Monday - 2 weeks from today!!
You've heard it here.
The next move I make will be orchestrated by my children
into a one room Assisted Living facility!
Probably in a month or two! Ha!
"See" you on the other side of the move.
