But we have a new place signed and ready and movers set for the 21, though move-in is officially the 14th, so we get the keys and can start transporting some things we don't want/need the movers to take (it's not far). So, for ex, we have to move the fish ourselves, so I'm going to transfer them each to their own bucket to hang out while I drain the tank and we take it (and them) to the new place. Luckily it won't be so long it'll have to start the tank from scratch, but it'll be good to drain the water and clean it thoroughly. poor babies will be so freaked out at first (then they forget, luckily, because they're fish)
We also now have a big trash bin for.... *deep breath* the garage. That's going to take the longest. my husband has a room full of comics going back to the SEVENTIES (which is going in storage not the bin, I should clarify) and plenty of other assorted STUFF, including baby stuff that's now twelve years old. There's ... a lot to go through. But storage, new place, donation, or trash - those are the only choices at this point - no more "let me put that aside and figure it out later" not-choosing. Which of course is overall a good thing, to make all these choices and really cull out what we actually want and need, versus stuff we just have, but it's daunting to think about actually doing.
