I am arranging for a U-Haul truck and will be moving the items I will be keeping to storage this weekend (mostly family items and those things I can't quite part with!)
So between now and then I will be emptying the contents out of drawers, unmaking beds and getting it all ready to go. I will also have the remaining furniture from down stairs brought up and put in the garage to ease their departure.
Since I will have help for this part, I want to get as much done of the heavy work done. I have also learned that is is easier for me if as many of the decisions are made ahead of time when there are fewer distractions to minimize stress. We will have to see how that goes.
I am shooting for May 1 for a closing date so I have to Move It, Move It, Move It!
Next I will need to figure out where I will be parking for a couple of weeks after the closing as I will want to be getting things settled in Lolita and getting organized with all the last minute departure arrangements made!
I will be planning on leaving the Spokane area around May 15 and doing some visiting of friends I haven't seen for a long while as I travel across Washington State visiting in Seattle, Tacoma and along the Washington Coast where friends live. Then I have reservations for a Glamping Event (a kind of Women's Vintage Trailer Camping Rally in the Portland, Oregon area for May 31 through June 2. I will be posting plenty of eye candy pictures of those vintage treasures for you to view. I haven't met any of these gals other than on vintage trailer sites so I will be stretching myself a bit in a new social arena. I feel like a scout out to find new areas to explore further in the future as the time and opportunity arise.
I'm getting close.... I can feel it!
