WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!!! And holy shit, the number of broken down cardboard boxes we have – like, HOW? I could start my own damn shipping company.
My brother has completely kicked ass on the basement – it is absolutely fucking amazing the work he’s done down there.
The appraisal is officially scheduled for Tuesday. I have more than enough time to get the last small bits done without panic or rushing. AND I’M JUST DOWN TO THE SMALL BITS!
It’s not even remotely perfect, but it’s good enough for a stranger I’ll never see again to walk in and say “Yes, there are 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, and a basement, and it needs paint, carpet, and kitchen & bath updates.” (Like, seriously, we could do this over the phone.) Could I throw a dinner party? LOL, no. Could have a repair person come in without a second thought? YES!
I’m really proud of myself for plowing through this and kinda mad at myself, too – super annoying to know that if I’d just consistently kept up with things from the start, this alllll would have been easier. But, better now than never and all that, and now I have better coping mechanisms and strategies to help me get things done than I have ever had.
And I am very excited to just go back to regular housework routines, and given that we still have a fair amount of stuff around here, I am committed to grabbing a box/bin/whatever from a room every day and going through it. And it all feels SO much less overwhelming now. And my goal of getting everything properly deep cleaned at some point or another over the course of the year is gonna be much easier because EVERYTHING ISN’T IN THE WAY ANYMORE!
But before that, I have to go get a fuckton of cardboard boxes out to the carport…
You have a fantastic day!!
