The movers come on Saturday. It took me having to call in the relocation team to hand slap the movers to get confirmation of this fact, but that’s pretty much in keeping with how things have gone, no? We don’t know what time the movers are coming over on Saturday, however, so we’re just going to play it by ear.
In the meantime we’re sorting through a lot of stuff and trying to figure out what we’re taking and what we’re giving away or donating. I’ve reached a point in time where I’m pretty sure I’m going to just throw away everything in the bathroom and in my office (minus my beautiful desktop computer) and start from scratch once we get there.
As part of our packing, I did a major cull of my wardrobe and jewelry, keeping only those items I’ve worn in the last year and actually really love. In terms of jewelry, I got rid of everything that was cheap and kept only things that had sentimental value or was made of precious stones. (Several of these necklaces are made by a local jewelry designer who designed my wedding necklace back in 2002.)
Speaking of getting rid of things, we also sold our Subaru. I spent last Friday running around like a chicken with my head cut off getting it detailed and smogged. Turns out because it’s so new it didn’t need to be smogged. We dropped it off at The Buggy Bank in Berkeley and waited for people to call. It sold on Monday for $1500 less than we asked, but getting it taken care of and not having to worry about it anymore was a huge weight off our shoulders. This week I’ve been driving my father-in-law’s Toyota Sequoia and holy hell is that huge.
At this point, we’re hours away from the movers coming and OH MY GOD IT’S REALLY HAPPENING.
