Still a long way to go but I feel we did achieve quite a lot yesterday (although we gave up on the library).
21 boxes packed, a load of old textbooks freecycled and a box of stuff taken to the charity shop. Also the car is full of stuff for the dump.
There was some tough stuff to get rid of in that lot, I made myself go through all the toys I've kept from my own childhood. I managed to get rid of about half. That's a big step since I did a previous sort a couple of months ago and got rid of most of the soft toys.
I am hoping that things will go a bit quicker once we get into the living spaces, since they shouldn't be so much sorting to do.
Off to playgroup this morning, so I won't get that much done. Maybe this afternoon I will get the kids packing some of their toys, while they still seem exited about taping boxes together.
Well...our plans have taken a change. We thought we had purchased a forclosure (dream location, house needs work, but decent)-supposed to close on October 27. We hurried and got current home ready, listed and agreement signed all in 2 weeks! Have to be out of here by November 27. Were planning to stay with in-laws for a few weeks while fixed up new place. Now, mistakes made on forclosure of new place and we don't even know if we will be able to buy it. So...now have to put most of furniture in a POD and stored in in-laws garage. Hopefully we will be able to get new place. Otherwise will have to find another home and there isn't much out there that we like better than the home we are selling....Starting to pack a lot more today. Having a moving sale in a week so I don't have to pay to store furniture. It's been a stressful few days. But at least we have a place to go to temporarily.
