A long way to go and a short time to get there?

 

Its been a while since I last posted..we have been a tad busy..

I know I have written before about the task of ‘purging’..

Organizing, selling, donating and disposing of unwanted and unneeded items..

We have gone through this a few times over the past six years but finally we are actually committed to accomplishing the ‘monster task’..

Why you ask?..well our ‘work camping jobs’ for next spring have been confirmed..

The lease on the condo we are renting is done February 28, 2015..

We now have a goal..

But where does one begin with this daunting task?…

for us it began with our daughter moving out..

The storage locker was emptied and all stuff that occupied that space was brought home..

sorted into semi-organized piles of  ‘sell , donate, dispose’

We have sold a few items  on Craig’s List already..

there is also all the ‘stuff in the trailer’....

my goodness the ‘mess keeps getting bigger and bigger’ and just a tad overwhelming..

But we figured we needed to  ‘move out’  before we could ‘move in’ in preparation for our ‘new life’..

I don’t really know if this was the ‘right thing to do’ but since we are basically trying to combine ‘two houses into one’ better to have all the ‘stuff together’..

..and then there is the time frame of moving out of the condo and into the trailer..

So we made the decision to bring our beloved ‘Freeway’ down to the coast and store him here for the winter so he will be accessible to us mid-February..

This should make the ‘transition’ at least a wee bit easier..

We made the trek to Keremeos this weekend..we had some work to do..IMG_3946

Bin after bin was loaded up..

as we headed west through the Hope-Princeton..the truck handled the mountain passes..’piece of cake’

..within a few hours we were ‘parked’ at our new storage facility..Freeway has a new ‘friend’ to keep him company for the winter..’ACE’ says ‘welcome to the compound’…’You will be safe here!’
