The attorney came today and we talked about the questions I had. I mentioned to him the "god bless you" bit in the packet from the law firm describing the hardship letter. He said he hadn't been aware of it (but he hadn't read every document that they give to people), and that he agreed it wasn't a great thing. He also said he suspected that yes, it actually does make a difference because so many of the places that do the approvals are in states like Texas. He wasn't thrilled with it, but there isn't much anyone can do. He did say he'd talk to the people in his office about it, though. Maybe, at least, the packet won't go out with that in it.

There is a slim chance that the short sale won't be approved unless I'm in default. He said in that case it could take a year or more to sell, but that I could just stop paying the mortgage and walk away. He did advise that I keep up the HOA payments if that happens, because being in arrears on the HOA payments makes it that much harder to sell, but he didn't think this was a likely situation in my case.

We had a pleasant and clear conversation, and I'm a lot more confident in where I stand right now. Once he left, I packed another box of stuff. I cleaned some more, and I took the CD player, the DVD player, the VCR, and the surround sound system out to the garage. I took photos of the electronics (except the VCR, which [ profile] gra_is_stor wants), and listed them and the mission style tv stand on craigslist. I sold both the CD and DVD players today, I have someone coming to get the tv stand tomorrow, and someone bought the bed frame today, so it was a really successful day in terms of removing some items from my list of concerns, and I got most of what I asked for. I've also listed my Kitchen Aid mixer, as that's going to be too large to deal with in a tiny apartment. I do have a small hand mixer that will do for the stuff I generally need, and I'll keep that unless I get approval to go to Italy.

I emailed the contractors about the repairs for the bathroom water damage and they will get back to me about scheduling for next week, to let me know when they can come and how long the repairs will take.

Tonight I washed dishes and floors, I hauled out more trash and recycle, and I went down to the store and got some flowers for the table for the photos tomorrow. Everything is about as ready as I can get it with the time I've been allotted. There's still a lot to do, but I have accomplished an immense amount today. [ profile] ingvisson says that he's good with taking stuff down to the storage unit whenever we have to go to Seattle, so that means I'll be slowly but surely getting things out of the garage. That will reduce the number of things that have to be moved when I do actually vacate the condo.

And now I'm going to try crawling off to bed because I'm exhausted and my head hurts. With any luck, tomorrow evening I'll be hanging out with steampunks (assuming I can get a ride). Also, more sorting and packing.

Of the packing of things, there is no end.

A big YAY on selling the bed frame and the other things (and fingers crossed for the pending things).

If you post the links to the other things still for sale I'll pimp them on my Facebook.

I'd imagine if it's in good condition and priced right, you'll have little to no trouble unloading the KitchenAid mixer. Those things are great workhorses, and very expensive when brand new. Mine is 25 years old and still going strong.

You've started off the week making GREAT progress. May it continue!

Thanks, my dear! Here are the links for you, and I really truly appreciate your spreading the word on this stuff. It's so great that you are willing to help out.

KitchenAid mixer:

Yamaha home theatre/surround sound system:

I have one more item listed but somebody's supposed to pick it up this afternoon. If they flake, I'll post that, as well.

Thanks so much!

How was the retreat? I'm eager to hear about it.
