Day 58: 124 days to L.A.
Tomorrow the plumbing is supposed to be all reconnected. After that, smaller stuff like installing the microwave and dishwasher and a few other odds and ends. Then, it's down to:
(a) yardwork (I did some this afternoon)
(b) staging (this will be a continuous process)
(c) paring, sorting, trashing, donating, packing - figuring out what we really want to take with us and what it's time to say farewell to.
I'm happy that we're almost to this stage. Being without sinks the past few days has been a bit frustrating and living in a constant state of clutter has been a nightmare. When I say clutter I mean boxes, mail, stuff from cabinets stacked on tables, my bags packed (or now unpacked) from the trip, delivered stuff still in boxes waiting to be put away (when there's a place to put them away), low priority mail, and on and on.
We've done our budget and can confirm that we actually can afford to live in California. We need to do our pre-approval paperwork and our disclosure paperwork for this house,
But yeah, looking forward to being able to get things put back into cupboards and off of tables.
