Great attitude, ElaineDo you have a ratified contract? If so, you have a date to move of 8/26. If not, is it worth messing up your sale to get more time? As a pregnant buyer, I’d be a bit miffed to not move until close to due date. I’d ask for 9/1 but not any later. Just imho.
You can move by 8/26 if you had to. It’s hard to pack up everything but just do it. Start with 50 large Rubbermaid bins, pack up almost everything except essentials and put in a pod or storage unit. We made 10+ trips over the weekend in our car once. After final move, give the bins away or use for storage.
Who cares what a rental looks like if it is clean and meets your needs. You can be excited or stressed. It’s a mindset. If you view as an adventure, you’ll do OK. Once we lived in 6 hotels in 8 weeks with 3 toddlers and canceled a trip home for Christmas to close on NYE. New Year’s Day everyone got stomach flu in new house and strep throat and 1 had to overnight in ER. We laugh now about our 1st night in new house.
You survived last year at your job and left with your head held high.
You can do this!
Elaine (ps. Just missed you at Smuggler’s. We left on sat).
