Garage Sales

I sold a pile of belongings this weekend. My first garage sale of my own had to be held in my front rooms, since I have no garage available to fill with tables. It's very nice to have less stuff. Everything is in my 5'x7' storage unit in my basement
(it's not even full). The strangest thing was when I bagged up my orange bike and stuck it in there. It just felt final.

I woke up this morning in my down mummy bag on Aaron's old mattress in the living room and thought, I'm really moving to New Zealand. As if the empty house wasn't sign enough before the sleeping bag. By the way, the sleeping bag is awesome in the house.

Only 3 more days in my house... strange. I brought in the recycling bins for the last time.

It's cold and raining here.

Calming the nerves...

Today I emptied the contents of my house. I started this morning with a bed and a couch and chairs. Now I am sitting on the floor in my living room, contemplating the next thing to do. I thought it might be fun to sleep down here. On the floor. Maybe in a sleeping bag. That would get me ready for what might be to come, or for anything, maybe. Two days ago I was in the shower and I realized that I only had two weeks to pack up the entire house. Not a lot of time. So I got nervous and posted everything on Craig's List. Like magic, my nerves were calmed!

Now just have to sell my car and other miscellaneous belongings. How strange.

I wonder if Craig's list makes the world a better place. Most of the folks are so nice, helps to reinforce the goodness of humanity.

Well. That is all for now. At the rate I'm going, the next post will be when I'm forty!
