Prepare yourself. This is not a pretty picture!
This shows a fraction of the mess I make when getting together an order or listing items for sale on the web. Add to that a move.
I have 100 times more than shown all tucked away out of sight. Really, at least 100 times what is shown. It will take every surface in every room to organize this for sale, yard sale or moving preparation. Although we do NOT pack ourselves, decisions on what goes to the new location have to be made now.
We are/were waiting on an offer dependent upon someone’s travel schedule. And, we were waiting for another showing…for the past 10 days. Waiting. Waiting. Waiting.
I cleaned, as in Windex, dusting, vacuuming and mopping almost 4000 square feet just about every day for those days. And, the above mess, which will spread out on half that space with only pathways soon, takes at least a 16 hour day and lots of physical labor to gather up for a showing. Add another cleaning before it is shown, and you see the challenge.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to communicate this to the key people around me. You can find me on the sofa, in the fetal position, with a bag of chips, frozen yogurt and possibly a forbidden coca cola.
