I kept telling myself "it's just furniture, it's just furniture," and it was still hard. Today the folks at Home2Home picked up a desk and two dressers. I was back and forth about whether to include the dressers but as part of my downsizing I went through with it. The less I have, the less I'll be tied down...and it was still hard.
I've been packing up the kitchen and that has not been a fun project. I found myself picking something up and then putting it down on the other side of the kitchen instead of in a box. When I called Carissa at Home2Home to see what time the guys would be here today, she said it would probably be after lunch. Last time they were here they arrived shortly after 10AM. So, I bit the bullet and packed the kitchen. I'm done except for the seasonings. I'm trying to separate what goes on Olivia and what needs to be packed which means leaving boxes hanging around. As I pack them I've been putting them in the garage, but not what's going in Olivia. I'm getting close to the limit for my "minimum" move and I'm hoping to stay in that range to keep the price down.
I can't find my mifi. I thought I took it with me to Olivia yesterday. I was just there hanging up my new curtains and I couldn't find it. I've looked from one end to the other in my SUV and it isn't there either. I'm going to take a deep breath, not panic and will it to show up.
When I was at Olivia I opened the closet door and my propane alarm went off. I tried it a number of times and it happened each time. Nothing was turned on inside and I went outside and turned the propane off. I'm hoping that was just a fluke and won't continue. That would not be fun.
I called a friend in the middle of my meltdown after the furniture was picked up. We're going to meet at Applebee's for dinner. I'm looking forward to it.
That's it for today.
