If any of you are planning to purge your stuff, downsize, or minimize what you have, let me give you one bit of advice:
Allow yourself at least twice as much time as you think you’ll need. And if you can afford it, hire professional help.
During those last few days when I was clearing out my house, the stress level was beyond description. I didn’t think I’d be finished in time. I literally found myself walking in circles not knowing where to start and muttering “I just want this stuff out of here.”
So I cheated. I put a couple of extra boxes in storage and a couple of other boxes found themselves in my hotel room. Over the next couple of weeks I’ll go through them and decide what to keep, what to give away and what to trash.
On the bright side, I felt nothing as my stuff was carted away. I had no emotion when I walked through my empty house just prior to turning over my keys. I was ready. It was time.
The number one question I’m being asked is where am I going first. I wish I knew. I was so busy packing and purging that I haven’t given any thought to the actual travel.
Over the next few days and weeks, I’ll be posting quite a bit of information about what I went through and where I’m going. If there is anything in particular you want me to discuss, let me know.
I’m off to try to learn Windows 8. Just prior to moving I bought an ultra-lightweight PC and it came with Windows 8. It’s going to take me a few days to learn it,……a few days I’ll never get back.
