I've sold the headboard, footboard and frame for my bed. I've given away two laundry baskets of books (that one kinda hurt). My leaning ladder bookshelf just walked away (in a manner of speaking). The Rattan Box floor lamps - 2 of them anyway - have been sold and that wrought iron thing I really didn't like that was hanging over the sofa is gone too. While I haven't sold everything it's pretty fulfilling to get the price I've asked without any dickering. Haggling over price can be fun at a garage/rummage sale. But, I've been horribly undersold in the past. I'm a push-over when it comes to face time.
I'm thinking I may just be able to get this down to a 4x8 trailer. I know it's only the first days of selling and giving away and sorting and boxing. There's a lot of things that need to find new homes yet.
Next weekend is my aunt's 60th birthday. She's giving a party. My Saturday is booked to drive to Cedar Rapids and see her and my uncle. I hope to take the time in June when I return for my daughter's graduation to visit again. But graduation is a big deal and I'm not sure what I will be able to pull off. I don't know that I can really fit in this visit as it is. But, I can't not fit it in either.
I'm just taking it a day at a time, a moment as it is. The taste of elephant kinda grows on ya'.
