The positive side of the experience is that it kicked me into high gear. I had a garage sale (in my basement) & sold a lot of stuff. Before, during & after the sale we put piles & piles of stuff to the curb, donated 2 car loads to the thrift store, organized & re-arranged my attic, basement & garage, got re-involved in selling stuff on Craigs List & EBay which has become fun & rewarding.
God Bless Ben. I would never, never, ever have been able to get anywhere near this point without his help. Barrett & Randy helped with the garage sale, as did my friend, Kay. Bless you all.
I feel more ready now. I guess everything just has to take the time that it needs to take. I feel like there is order. I feel that what lies ahead is not insurrmountable. I know what I have, know what I want to take, and know more or less how to prepare to do the actually sorting & packing.
