In the meantime, I’ve been working hard scanning stuff. I’ve scanned all my slides (and threw them away.. Yeichs!), Burned the DVD’s to hard drive and gotten rid of the DVDs. I’m in the process of scanning the photo albums, and any loose photos I have. I have scanned all news clippings that I’ve saved over the years, photographed the artwork I had saved from my youth (can’t believe I’ve saved some of this stuff). Although all these things do not take much room… I feel lighter already. We are also listing furniture, etc. on Craigslist, eBay, Facebook, and OfferUp.com. Next weekend my sister, brother-in-law, and I, am heading to Albuquerque to help my parents move across town. (Mike has to stay home to work). I’m taking the trailer filled with furniture and item to give, or store at my families houses. So we are making visible progress.
Yesterday walking into the movie theater, Mike commented “Never in a million years would I have believed I would be a SD driver’s license holder.” Well you know I would say, “Never say never!”
FOOTNOTE: On the drive to Albuquerque, David (Monica’s husband) says to me, “So, are you going to leave the trailer in Albuquerque?”.. I said, “Well, coincidentally Mike told me jokingly as I was walking out the door this morning that if I found a buyer, I should sell it… But not sure how I could connect with a buyer.” Monica pipes up from the back seat and says, “Let’s list it on Craigslist.” She proceeded to email Mike to get a description, pulled the photo off of this blog, listed it, and an hour later just as we were pulling into town had it sold. Wow!! Teamwork.
