Yesterday I went to shrinkage, not feeling very well. I had a headache that got progressively worse as the day went on. By midnight it was one of those stake through the eye things that was just not getting better, no matter what I did. I called and cancelled my VA group and the attorney appointment I had, and rescheduled with the attorney. I spent today at home, dealing with the migraine hangover (not too awful, but I did feel kind of off), filling out and signing probably 60 or so pages of paperwork, and producing three letters that I needed for listing the condo. I did a two page letter explaining why I needed to sell the place and asking for permission to sell the condo, one explaining why I have not filed tax returns (none of my income is taxable, so it isn't required by law for me to do so), and one explaining why there is a lot of money right now in my savings account (I'm selling everything and saving up for moving).

That took most of the day and was pretty emotionally draining. What it does mean, though, is that we'll be listing the place for sale very soon. Their market analysis suggests listing the place for more than I thought they would; the more they get for it, the less of a loss the lenders will take on a short sale, so that was good. I've got some questions in with the real estate agents that I imagine I'll receive some answers to on Friday or Monday.

I spent a little time just resting and reading after that. Late this evening I went for a walk over to Safeway to pick up some things - I was nearly out of half and half for my tea, and wanted to get a few snacks and things. I stopped by [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor's place to see her and get my hair re-braided. She's got a cold and isn't feeling too well; she'll be coming over tomorrow and I will make her some food. I promised her golden beets, which she really likes. Circumstances have conspired against her and she's not going to be going to the Irish immersion week in Portland, though [livejournal.com profile] ingvisson is still going, so she won't have the car. This does, however, mean I won't have to look after her cats for her.

The real estate agent wants to come over on August 2nd to look at the place and take some photos. If anybody wants to come and help me do some cleaning and packing things this weekend (I need to get packing material), I would greatly appreciate it. I'll provide pizza or other food items and beverages. I need to get rid of a bunch of stuff in the garage, as well, which can either go in the trash or the recycle, and I've promised [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor the flower/plant pots, gardening tools, and whatever potting soil I've got handy for her patio. That will need to get moved from my place to hers in a vehicle.

I had yet another person come to look at the bed and then not buy it. I've got the craigslist ad renewed yet again. I'm going to list the TV and the bicycle this week, I think. I'm hoping I'll have better luck with them.

Next Friday, August 2nd, the real estate agent is going to be here taking photos for the listing; I really only got confirmation of this date this morning. This weekend (and into this coming week) I am going to need help with cleaning and packing. [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor posted a couple of FB events with details (you can see the info without having a FB account) at these links:

Here is the Saturday event:

Here is the Sunday event:

Essentially, if you can come over this weekend, preferably between 2-7pm, I will be happy to provide pizza, booze, and the beverages of your choice in return for some help with cleaning and packing so that the place is presentable for photographs. The nature of real estate sales being what they are, this means that I have to have my altars pretty much all packed and put away so as not to offend "sensitive" potential buyers.

If you're able to come by, please let me know. I shall sing your praises to all the gods and spirits for your aid. And feed you. And give you things to drink.

Thank you!
