Still no word on selling my house. I had a showing a couple days ago, but no real feedback has come in yet.

In the meantime, I am trying to envision what my new home will look like. It will be an apartment, of course. I don’t foresee ever being a homeowner again. I want to keep my new place clutter-free (I’ve been doing a great job getting rid of stuff; please refer to previous posts). I plan to have an earth-tone palate throughout. Well, except for the kitchen where I will have shots of red. Red Zen-like dishes, red tea kettle, red dish drainer, red sugar bowl, Red Kitchen-Aid pots and pans. Yummy red.

My yard sale was today. This was all the stuff that B doesn’t want, I don’t want, and I want it OUT of the house. I’ve been slowly going through and sorting stuff for three months. This week, I consolidated all of it into the dining room. I also spent almost $40 to place classified ads announcing the sale in addition to posting it on craigslist. Last night I got as much ready as I could. This morning about two hours before the sale start time, I began setting everything up in the yard. I was ready.

V-E-R-Y slow day.

I started the day with $50 in my pocket. I ended with $99. After paying myself back the $40 for the classifieds, and deducting the original $50, I made NINE F****** DOLLARS.

I grabbed a bunch of huge trash bags and began to pile things in them. Stuff from the dollar store went in the bags as quickly as random anniversary gifts that B had given me at one time. I was indiscriminate in getting rid of stuff. When I was done with this mania, I had 12 bags of…well…things that I don’t want around as reminders of a life that I no longer have. I backed my truck into the yard, loaded the bags and drove them directly to a donation site. They’re gone.

And yesterday, I mailed out the last of B’s boxes. Gone.

I’ve let go of so much in my life in the past five months. But, I am ok.

However, I think I am allowed to bitch a bit more about making only NINE GODDAMN DOLLARS today!

Yeah, I haz a fierce alright.
