Down to the final stuff to be packed that had been gathered and moved into the living room. We’re taking a break to secure our hotel room for the night, grab dinner, then back here to finish up.
ALMOST DONE ALMOST DONE ALMOST FUCKING DONE
Womenshelters.org can provide you with a list and addresses/phone numbers!
Oh that will be so useful thank you! I’ll look tonight.
Try not to let anything else high-five your face though! And maybe a light high-five for your hands. Have you ever high-fived right on a bruise on the thick part of your palm? I don’t recommend it.
I want you to know I’m going to say “the closet high-fived my face” forever, like that is now officially what happened.
Huge progress made, we’re almost to the point where we can’t do much but wait for people to show up to move to the next step.
House closing is at 2, junk haul away guys due between 3 and 5. Dragging Mum out of the house so we can get out of here for a bit and have some lunch (neither of us have eaten since lunch yesterday). Then I’ll drive her to the closing and come back to do more finalized packing and moving boxes to my old bedroom/now staging room while I wait for the haulers. After that, just finishing up the remnants of the packing and then we are DONE, THANK ALL THE GODS.
Movers arrive tomorrow between 8 and noon. My tasks tomorrow: find a women’s shelter for all mum’s old nice clothes (there surely must be one here) and visit any place I want to see one last time.
Thursday morning we plan to be heading out of here.
High-five us, everyone, we are doing so awesome.
i’m sorry you hurt your face :(((
Thanks, me too. THE SOUTH WILL KILL ME YET. Still now I know that if I ever get into a fight with a 2x4, I will surely and painfully lose.
Done for the night. I am just out of energy completely.
I had an accident earlier today where I busted my face into the edge of a solid wooden shelf. I bashed it full force straight on the tip of my nose and then my upper lip/front teeth. I’ve lost partial facial definition from the swelling (though no teeth, which was something of a pleasant surprise), and have been in intense pain all day today. The headache is starting to come back too, so no more bending and lifting today.
We’ve sorted and cleared the entire house — every drawer, every room — except for my closet (which just needs shit pulled out of it) and what remains in Mum’s mostly sorted bedroom and bathroom.
She closes on the house tomorrow. Also tomorrow will be the junk guys to haul away more than half of the shit that accumulated over the years. The movers come the next day.
Tomorrow we’ll be getting a hotel room, since the junk guys are hauling away the beds and mattresses. While I can’t completely say goodbye yet, this is the last night I will ever spend in this house.
I can’t wait.
For the rest of tonight, just chilling and relaxing a bit. It’s been rough, but we’ve done so much, are almost finished, and I’m so proud of us.
Team Betty AND Veronica!
ANOTHER DREAM INVADED
We did indeed have a Sega. Still have it. Hubby does not get rid of gaming things. Ohhh no no no.
Thank you guys. I had trouble sleeping and throughout the night I was seeing your messages and feeling so much better. I’m ready to face today head-on and put yesterday behind me.
Insert adorably expressive gifs here.
Today we empty out all the rooms and drawers and closets to figure out what’s being packed and what’s being junked. I will sort ALL THE THINGS. ALL of them. If you are not careful I WILL ALSO SORT YOU.
