14 days. 2 weeks since I started on this adventure called, “Selling Everything I own”. Turns out, that’s a lot of work. Never having sold everything before, I had no idea what that would entail. First, I needed to disconnect from everything I owned for sentimental reasons. Second, I had to gather everything together from all the four corners of my home…throwing away the things that were no longer working or useful, keeping the few things that I can fit into an RV, and giving away or selling the rest.
So here’s how everything is looking right now.
My formal dining room before:
and right now:
The hallway before:
and right now:
The basement view, before and after:
I’ve had three garage sales or informal gatherings where people can come buy my stuff, and everything that is left after 2 weeks is now in my garage waiting to be donated:
Let’s check in and see how I’m holding up….
Haven’t reached a happy place yet. There’s still so much to do. And, because we’re all still living here nothing stays static. Like, while I was in the basement, the kids were up in the playroom tearing it up again. So, it’s kind of like bailing out a leaky ship with a teaspoon. I envision finally getting to So. Cal and being in a near catatonic state. Just prop me up in a beach chair, stick a straw in my mouth connected to some kind of fruity drink, and leave me there for a while. I’ll blink twice when I get hungry.
2 weeks down. How many more to go?! That’s the million dollar question!
