Today we moved a bunch of furniture that we can't take with us to my Mom and Dad's house. Did another run with stuff to Good Will. Then went and sold my car at CarMax. My car was 7+ years old and only had 32,600 miles on it. But we can't bring it with us to DC. Only one parking spot for us and no way are we paying for another one! Paul's car is a Honda which will last forever and it's only a couple years old. So I said goodbye to my 2001 Yellow Beetle. I was sad. I couldn't look at it as we left.
I have to say though, all this getting rid of stuff does get easier and easier. With the exception of my car, I look around the house and there's nothing that I feel that tied to. I am half tempted to get rid of everything and start over again. Would almost be cheaper than what we are paying to move it all!
I am starting to feel pretty tired tonight. Just have a couple custom orders to pack up to ship out and then off to bed. I need to wrap these up so I can start packing up my studio!
I know it's gonna do great.
I was the queen of moving - Kiesha and I had moved 16 times before she actually got to her 5th Birthday! So condensing stuff had become an art and yes isn't it amazing how much we actually really don't need when it comes down to it! Hope all goes really well with the move - will be thinking of you
it'll all work out fine!
after you get settled in DC, look into car-sharing programs - they're great for being your 2nd car (and some of them have Beetles)...
Then the kid went off to college.
And the Taurus got older and things began to break.
We donated it to the car-fixing classes at the junior college, and I felt awful about leaving it there.
I know just what you mean.
Sending you good vibes that the move go as smoothly as possible!
