I find myself in some what of an unusual position. Our plan to do the Reverse Mortgage (please every one...hold positive thoughts, pray, and hope our home appraises for at least $200,000) will buy us time, over the next two to five years, before we put the house up for sale again.
I put a few pictures back and the magnets back on the fridge, but wonder if it is worth unpacking everything, only to pack it all again down the road... Not that I want to live in limbo until we move, but it might help me detach emotionally.
If our goal is to simplify, then it might be a good idea to get used to living with less stuff...If I stay on task, I can really eliminate, unload, purge out a ton of more stuff and then we can fit into a smaller space. We've discussed trying to find a smaller place in California, now. It would give us a place to stay when visiting, and would be a place to move to, when the time comes.
Sounds good in theory, let's hope we make it happen.
