After 37 years of marriage I have accumalated quite a few things. I am not a packrat by any means. I do intend to have a moving sale before I actually move out of my house. I will be moving in with my parents on June 1. My parents do not have room for all my stuff that I want to store so I will have to get a storage unit. I have been that route before and know that storage units have all kinds of things wrong with them. However, I must store some stuff. I do not plan to store any furniture because I do not want to take a chance of bugs or spiders, etc. getting into my things. I plan to buy the plastic storage containers with lids for most of my stuff although I know it will be fairly expensive. I have been buying up a few already. I guess I just don't know what to really keep. Since I will probably live with my parents for at least a couple of years I dread paying the storage and just wonder if I will really want most of this stuff in a few years. Do any of you have any advice? I have my grandmother's crochet bedspread, some quilts, some dishes of hers and lots of pictures of my grandparents. I also have papers and pictures of my family and just seem to be stumped as what to keep. This is so hard. I feel that the next few weeks I will be living in a fog. I don't want the divorce but it is going to be here and I have to deal with all this stuff and all the memories. My husband only wanted his clothes and his "stuff" in the garage. I have 3 bedrooms full of things. Thank goodness I have a few months to sort through all this stuff. When I move out of my parent's house will I even want to use some of this stuff? My daughter is going to take a sofa and my new dining room table and chairs. I am taking everything in my bedroom now. What to do with everything else? I plan to give things that I think would mean something to other people in my family before my garage sale. I just don't want the things that I have to store to be ruined. I would also like for all of you to send up a few prayers for me throughout the next few weeks. I'm really afraid I am going to fall apart before the 6th of February. I do have the help of my two grown kids and my parents. My two sisters and their families also. I'm not alone but in a way I feel alone. I just want my heart to stop hurting. I know a new life for me is just around the corner but I feel like I'm not ready for it. I am just sick of all this pain.
