We've spent the weekend weeding through things and packing. The plan is to load up *most* of the household things to storage this weekend. We'll live with just the bare minimum for the last week and only stuff Sweetheart can move himself. Basically we'll be down to some clothes, dishes, mattresses and toys. Should be interesting.
That will leave him the last week to load up all the rest of his shop stuff and the outdoor stuff. It's a lot. He has sold a lot and will hopefully pare down more, but that is out of my hands.
We still are waiting to hear back from FHA about our offer on the little farm. My prayer is that we will hear an answer this week. Everything else has happened faster than anyone could imagine, so we'll see. Even if they accept the offer, we still need to do inspections and if all that is fine, work towards closing.
Still unsure where we will be after the 14th. If the offer on the farm isn't accepted, we will most likely look for a more normal rental situation and keep on looking for something permanent. If it is accepted, we will just find someplace(s) to sleep for a few weeks.
Being this flexible is not my strong suit. At all. Just being honest.
I've been going through tubs of stuff this morning. Lots from teaching that I want for homeschooling, books, treasures from childhood, books, craft and sewing supplies, books, pictures, books, and books. :) My thrift store pile is piling up pretty big and are the trash bags. The trip down memory lane isn't easy.
Well, I need to get back to it all. Prayer requests: an answer from FHA, safety for Sweetheart as he is moving a lot of heavy stuff, the guys who will help move stuff this weekend, the boys for adjusting to all the changes, me for any and everything you can think of. :)
