October is on the horizon and my poor mind is stuck back in August.
September went by in a blur because we were finally making arrangements to move to Arizona on a permanent basis. We are a year later than our plans allowed but such is the housing market! We were under the assumption that we could list the house in August of 06, and be in Arizona by January 07……
The best laid plans of mice and men, right?
We finally gave up on selling in any hurry, and loaded a U-Haul truck with the last of our treasures—of which I had to pick and choose very carefully since we are truly downsizing BIG TIME!
When summer ended too quickly, and the last of the grandkids reluctantly gathered their things and left dear ol' gran an' gramp's house, this ol' gal started filling boxes with everything but the kitchen sink. I do so hope this is our last move before the 'Marble Orchard.' In one's sixties, it just isn't a matter of throwing a few things in the car and changing addresses. We were dug in pretty deep here the last 17 years in this house we built and even cleared the land under! It is big and roomy with LOTS of storage space. And there lies the problem—when you have space, you fill it! I found things I hadn't seen in a number of years and apparently hadn't missed. They went mostly into the yard sale pile or straight to the local goodwill store. I boxed loads of things (some of which I wasn't ready to part with) into boxes going to the kids, and even more going on the truck south.
