All the books except a couple I am reading, and the ones I'm using for Irish and Italian study are packed, along with several boxes of binders and papers. There are 54 of them. They are now all in the garage.

Jade came by again today and was a total champion box packer. Patrick did a ton of cleaning and will be back again tomorrow for more. My next door neighbor Sally helped out a little bit, as well, which I really appreciated. Someone came and picked up the TV. I had posted the TV as a free giveaway on craigslist (because really, nobody wants to pay for them these days, when the thin screens are so much more available and smaller and lighter). I got two inquiries and, as the inquiries were coming in, I actually got an email from some dick saying "if it's one of the big ones, nobody wants those". I mean who the fuck sits around on craigslist all day sending messages to people saying nobody wants stuff? Really? Does this person have no life whatsoever? *headdesk* Needless to say, the troll was wrong.

Anyway, I have posted an ad for my cargo bike. I'm selling it for $500 because I can't ride it anymore due to the dizziness. If you know anyone who might be interested, please pass the link along.

I will probably be doing just a little more sorting and packing of art and whatnot tonight before I go to bed. Tomorrow, more sorting and packing art and stuff, then [livejournal.com profile] randwolf is coming by about 1:30 to stuff things into his truck and take me down to Seattle to rent the storage unit. He'll bring me back up here afterwards and I'll give him some gas money.

I'm probably going to need to get rid of a few of the bookshelves I have, though I have not yet decided which ones. I'll need a couple in Seattle, I'm guessing -- the smaller ones if I'm in a studio just for a couple of months. If I end up having to stay, then I'll want at least a couple of the larger ones, too, but at any rate, they'll need to be in the storage unit until things are sorted for me about whether I'm staying in Seattle or going to Italy.

The place right now is both emptier and, paradoxically, rather more cluttered at the moment than it has been in a long time. Part of that is just that I've had to remove things from shelves and walls and haven't had a place to put them yet, so a lot of it is piled up on the table or on the back of one of the couches. Friday Sonia is supposed to come over for the mattress and box springs. I'll be posting the ad for the bed frame once I can take photos of it. I forgot to ask Sally what the condo policy on garage sales is. I'm not sure I can actually have one here, but if I can, then I'll set up for a couple of weekends from now and just post some ads and hope people will come and buy bits and pieces of my non-ritual things. I have a lot of stuff like vases and decorative stuff and way too many mugs that I could do with getting rid of without just giving it all away. Any money at all that comes in from it would be very welcome.

I know I'm rambling a lot about this lately, but it really is kind of eating my life, as one would expect from having to deal with something like this. I'm so blessed with good friends who are willing to come and put in some heroic effort to help me out. So thank you again, my friends! You are the best!
