Our garage is now about 2/3 full of boxes and equipment [including a large Precor treadmill we are giving to our daughter-in-law]. Closing on our present home occurs in two days and moving begins a week thereafter.
The "stuff" keeps appearing; we keeping buying more boxes.
Yesterday, the buyer's family and agent stopped by to check on a couple of items the inspection revealed as needing attention... which were attended to. It's a lovely family with two children... a boy and a girl... who were polite and well-behaved and obviously excited. The kids got their mother's permission to go to the playground in the commons while I went through a list of "how to's" to properly maintain their new home.
We really will not have room for it when our new lake home is completed. I could have sold it on Craigslist, but this made the new family just a little happier with their purchase, so it was worth it. Sometimes, it is not all about money.
The boy will get that as a surprise when they move in.
Sometimes, "downsizing" is not all that bad.
