Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men

decluttering.001I’m moving back to Seattle this summer. Someone was kind enough to offer me their condo to rent, it was a sweet family deal!  Unfortunately for me (but fortunately for them) they have found a buyer, so I won’t be able to rent that spot. I gotta live somewhere else. I’m glad, of course, for the owners.

The tricky part for me is now finding a place to land with all my gear, without a deposit. My current plan is to crash with my sister for a while, it won’t take too long to save up. The trick with that is I’ll have to put most of my stuff in storage while I’m living in the guest room. I’m not too thrilled about that, as I will have to be organized and intentional about packing. Grr. However, I am looking forward to spending quality time with my sister and brother in law.

Then, when it’s time to move, I’ll have to pick a weekend and make it all happen. I’m a little worried about that.  The best thing I can do, probably, is go rid myself of extraneous belongings.  Again. Start over.

I have three weeks in June to read and watch Mari Kondo, and to Mari Kondo my current apartment. That has been my plan all along. Besides that, my only other obligation is jury duty. And occasional Southern California adventures.

One regret I have is that it turns out my friend R is a talented de-cluttering consultant in his own right. I think he’ll be long gone before I’ll be able to exploit his talents.

It goes without saying that all of this would be easier if I had a bunch of money sitting in my bank account. I have to work on that aspect.

    • not really inconvenient since it’s so far ahead, just a minor bummer 😉 I’m trying to pay less than $1500 a month and walk or bus to Blanchet HS in 30 min or less. It’s fine if I crash in West Seattle with H for a few months
