I sorted the tool basket and part of the laundry closet, and the junk drawer in the kitchen. Things are pared down a bit. Also a little stuff from the cabinets in the living room bookshelves. I sold the KitchenAid mixer today, so more money went into the moving fund. The couch might go tomorrow; I'm more optimistic about this one than the last inquiries.

Laundry got done. [ profile] gra_is_stor took me over to the credit union to deposit some cash. A mammogram was scheduled, and the heater in the living room will be replaced Wednesday morning at 10am.

The day bed is a little harder than I usually like, but easier on me than sleeping on the floor, so that's good. The DoDC+3 has been sleeping on the couch in the bedroom, what with the tiny space we'd have to share. I may end up putting a couple of pillows on the floor for him once the couch is out of there, if he doesn't want to sleep on the bed with me, it being so small.

Still doing more research on living in Italy and all that. Consensus among the people I'm talking with on the Fodors travel forum is that I'm preparing pretty well and have been thinking it all through pretty thoroughly. I know I have a ton of things to learn, but I'm definitely willing to ask questions and follow up with research and discussion.

Just based on your LiveJournal, you're doing plenty for your move. Not to minimise the amount of work you've put it at all, but it's shocking how incredibly unprepared people are willing to go into these sorts of things. Yours is no doubt one of the most level heads one will find in an expat/potential expat group.

Thank you, that means a lot.

Right now I need an abundance of patience, and I'm not sure I have a huge store of that. I really want to be out of here and back in Seattle, where I can catch my breath and work on the visa application.

Did you get your asking price for the mixer? Hopefully the couch will be out of there very soon!

Nice progress. It's really the little things that are the hardest to deal with (the content of junk drawers and other miscellany).

Yes, I got the full asking price for the mixer. I was very pleased by that. I should hear later this afternoon about the couch.

And yeah, it's got to the point where everything I'm now sorting and packing/getting rid of is all details rather than big picture stuff. I need to mail some stuff out to the Pagan archive (it will take a car) and also try to sell the comics/memorabilia (which will also take a car) sometime soon. That will take care of a lot of space in the garage, and a lot of emotional space in my daily life as well.

Thanks! I will admit I don't feel like I'm making much progress but objectively I know I am getting stuff done.
