First steps

People have expressed an interest in the preparation that is going in to my adventure, so I’ve decided to post about these things.

I’ve had several items that have been sitting in my house, in the way and collecting dust. Yesterday I actually got rid of them. It took most of the day, but it feels great! The biggest hurdle for me is figuring out which things I might be successful at selling and which I need to just give away.

The big challenge now is categorizing everything in the house as to what stays, what goes out, and what goes with. The majority is ‘what goes out’ I think. Being rather sentimental and a diagnosed pack-rat, there is a phenomenal amount of accumulated… um, stuff.

I also need to find a place to foster my plants, or perhaps even adopt them out. I wish I could take them with me. African violets, Christmas cacti, aloe, bamboo, jade, peace lily, and other miscellaneous ones.

It is possible I’ve already found a home for the cat, but she too, will need to settle in. All these things to think about and take care of between now and mid August when I leave.
