It's Done! I am Officially Homeless!
Yesterday, I handed over the all-important garage door opener remote, making the move out final. I am now officially homeless!
My tenant is so excited about being in the house; his mother was there too, a very nice lady who is looking forward to spending time there as well!
People say, "Aren't you going to miss this?" and of course I am. I will miss the peace and tranquility; the bird life, especially the osprey; my otter and coyote families; and of course my kitty boys.
But on the other hand, since I made the decision to just do it, to walk away from the memories and angst around the house, things are falling into place. It's scary not having a "base" but that will happen, all in good time.
Currently, I am holed up at Jim and Mardelle's apartment, surrounded by stuff that still needs to be disposed of! But I had tremendous success selling just about everything that wasn't nailed down. Amazingly, all through Facebook! My car and even the kitties' new home was through the online marketplace and word-of-mouth. It felt so much safer than going through craigslist. And so many people who came down to buy stuff are friends of friends of friends!
My garage sales were successful too, but I don't think I could have done it without Susan and Mardelle helping me. I was frazzled by then, but they got things organized and took a real load off me. People come out of the woodwork to buy, so there was very little, really, to take to the thrift store. And then to the dump! A process of elimination.
So now, with my new iPhone 7 Plus, my new camera and my new MacBook Pro I am set. I don't care much about any of the other stuff, just so long as I have these toys! All designed for my new adventure into discovering worldwide craft distilleries! More to come on that...
