It’s been a frustrating few weeks for me on the home liquidation front. Partially, I felt stuck in a rut of analysis paralysis; constantly planning and no action. However, mostly it just not finding time to get anything done. Between my day job, my side work on Fore & Aft Design and just the stuff that we have to do to keep our lives afloat, there just wasn’t enough hours in the day.
Beware the barrenness of a busy life.
Thankfully, I’ve been able to arrange three weeks off work to get to work on house repairs and to downsize like crazy. Plus I’ve been able to twist my father’s expert arm and he’s agreed to provide some much needed expertise to this undertaking. Even the first day, which has mostly been logistical work has felt like more progress than the entire last month.
Today we shopped for lumber, appliance parts, ordered a massive dumpster and did some minor repairs. It might be a small step, but it really feels like actual progress. Call me excited.
Tomorrow begins the porch rebuild . . .
