We are selling our house, hope to sell and close escrow by the end of December. Should be possible. HOWEVER! my darling spouse is already living far away, working a new job. That leaves the bulk of the sorting and packing to me. I've already gotten rid of a considerable amount of stuff, but this is a tough job. It feels very overwhelming. We've lived here nearly 20 years, and that is a lot of accumulation. Granted, I've done a fair amount of sorting and tossing the past several summers, but there's a lot left. We aren't the tidiest people around. Clean, yes, tidy, no. So. Any suggestions from those who've been there, done that', on how to survive this? Summer break is over in a few weeks, and once I'm back to work I don't know where the energy will come from to do this job of packing. I do have one adult son at home, but he is not overly helpful. My sister offered to come up for a weekend to help sometime in September, so that will help, but I feel so overwhelmed with the whole thing. I am fighting the fibro, as it reacts to the disruption in the house. Things are a mess, I have piles of packing boxes that a friend just gave me, and somehow, this house has to be ready to be shown by the realtors! How do I get it and keep it 'showing ready'????? I haven't changed houses in 20 years, and last time I wasn't up to my adenoids in fibro and other health issues. I need a fairy god mother... peace, beth.
