I have so much to do, as I'm sure everyone does, but I just can't seem to get motivated to do much of anything anymore. I hook on my rugs, work on my wool felt pillows and other items, and do my stitcheries, but other than that, my motivation is pitiful.
I'm supposed to be getting my house ready to put on the market so I can sell it and move in with my significant other of 18 years. But the problem with that is I have 25 years of "stuff" that I need to downsize to be able to move in with him. He lives in his grandfather's house which is 125 years old. The problem is that he has a house full of stuff and I have a house full of more stuff (way more stuff!!) and I'm having a hard time jumping in there and downsizing my stuff. Because his house is so old, it has little or no storage, because I guess back then they didn't need storage because they had way less things than what we have now. The only closet on the 1st floor is about 15 inches wide... Hello!! That's pretty scary!!
So every weekend I have all this stuff in my mind that I know I need to do, but instead I put it off and really don't get anything done. I have a few "tweaking" things that I need to do my house to get it ready to list, but those involve $$, and I'm not really very flush in that area right now. Who is? I love my significant other, but he wants my house sold before I move in so that debt is gone. Naturally, after all these years together, he waits until the worse time in the history of time for me to try and sell my house!!! Duh. My good friend tells me I should not look at the whole picture of how much I have to do to get ready to move, but should take baby steps, and just look at it as one project at a time. Easier said than done.
Right now my significant other and I are paying 2 sets of bills and we're both strapped for $$. Things would be a lot easier in the money area if I could just sell my place and move over there with him. As I said, his house was his grandfather's home and it needs some work, but after I don't have a mortgage, insurance, utilities, etc., I should be able to help fix it up. At least that part should be fun!!
I'm getting out my notebook right now and starting a list of things that need to be done in order to get my house ready to sell. Maybe I'll just fix up what I can and sell it as it is. As long as I can enough to pay off my mortgage, then at least I'm in the clear and the new owners can fix it up as they wish.
Gotta go. Have writing to do in my notebook!!
