First, thank you to those who gave me suggestions on how to go about packing up the house. It was helpful advice! I've sold or given away or thrown away a LOT of stuff, and will probably call Salvation Army or Goodwill to come pick up some furniture and stuff that I think will not sell well. I also just don't have the energy to deal with selling it. My piano was donated to a local church. The folks there were thrilled to get it. So, there is a lot less in the house. I've also packed many boxes of stuff I want to keep, and am continuing to pack, but more slowly now. The house actually looks pretty darn good! Two realtors came by today with clients, so we'll see where that goes. In theory, they are supposed to call me 24 hours in advance to schedule with me, but these two called this morning. Fortunately, I was home and it was ok. I just hope it sells soon so I won't have to worry about showing it. It's very stressful having strangers looking at my home! Anyway, I am surviving this so far, feel like I am making good progress on the packing. I did leave one vase out of the boxes so I can buy myself flowers when I need something cheery in the house, and have somewhere to put them. Just wanted to let you all know! Peace, Beth.
