January Progress Report

21 Jan

Damos gracias for a three-day weekend to move along the preparation for the move to Bacalar, Mexico. Major things have happened and continue to happen, even though people have said, “but you’re not leaving until July!” We know better. There’s much to do and time is short. This month we purchased a 6×10 cargo trailer and moved it to the driveway in front of our house. It serves as a storage unit for garage sale items as we clean out closets, drawers and rooms. We also made a trip to Target and purchased 20, 30-gallon plastic tubs for $6 each. Score! It makes sorting that much easier.

Our catch-all room, the “computer room” which served as massage studio, office, yarn/craft room and bicycle-gear storage room had been slated for painting this month. I’m happy to say that the room is empty and Lisa is texturing and prepping the walls for painting as I write. This is HUGE! The room was our nemesis. Much of its contents are stacked in our living room to be gone through nightly while watching TV…photos, diplomas, books, knitting patterns, tax returns, old love letters, geesh. Years of not being responsible certainly can bite one in the tush.

Another milestone is that Lisa got new pictures to renew her passport. We also have an appointment on Tuesday to meet with a Title Company to talk about self-selling our house. You can see that there are many things that must be considered. Cleaning up 20 years of our lives has certainly been an emotional process. What to do with the toys I keep for my grandson to play with when he visits? If I give them to him they will disappear in his electronic playland. Sigh. Good thing we’re prepping for the biggest adventure of our lives. Stay tuned dear readers. February is right around the corner and believe me there’s more to do.
