L'ARMEE DE NOTRE SALUT...
If on Monday, when the "Army" come to pick up, they take everything in the "give-away pile" that has now migrated from the other rooms in the house into our garage (and by pile I mean "MOUNTAIN"), we will be VERY relieved...and that's a HUGE understatement.
The garage is a catastrophe BUT the rest of the house is starting to look organized enough for movers to do their job.
Then all that will be left to dispose of is garbage on Tuesday and Friday, recycling on Wednesday and hopefully only a few "odds and ends" on departure day.
There is a bit of cleaning yet to get finished- I now realize how many closets and cupboards we have- some paint touch ups and a few repairs have been done, the refrigerator is starting to look somewhat empty, and the gardener is coming for the last time on Friday.
And then we can breathe.
Well...I'll breathe on the ride to the airport.
