Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest, but unfortunately it wasn’t the case around here.
We find it easier to get and stay motivated when things are progressing with the sale. Since we are feeling a little more optimistic now, we’re making progress again. We work better under pressure :)
We spent some more time on time on the closets. I had already taken out tons of clothes and donated them. I was surprised that there were still so many things left.
Through this downsizing process, I am realizing how much money we wasted over the years. We had clothes we didn’t even remember we had. We had countless projects that we bought things for, but never completed. What a waste.
We took a load to the storage shed and another truck load to the dump. We have another load to take to Good Will today.
The past several years I have been reading blogs about people starting their full timing lifestyle. I found it interesting and informative. One thing that pretty much everyone said was to not get a storage shed. They said you would pay rent for a year or two then end up tossing all the stuff anyway. I was determined not to have a storage shed, but Al disagreed. Well, now that the time is coming, I have relented and we’re going to have a storage shed. I admire the people that get the job done without having one, but I don’t know how they do it. You guys have my utmost admiration!
I managed to finish mowing the pasture yesterday and hopefully it was for the last time!
Al worked on one of his storage sheds and pretty much got it all cleaned up.
Today we need to “pretty up” the house, in hopes that the appraiser will be coming in the next few days. My brain tells me he won’t really be looking at how pretty things look, but I still feel the need to have it look it’s best. Unfortunately, all the packing and sorting has made a mess of things.
If we close on the 20th, we have 10 more days!
