I havent completely dropped off the face of the earth, I am in the midst of a packing frenzy. We got approval on our short sale last week and have an ambiguous closing date of any time between the first and middle of October. So now my ex and I are going through more than 20 years of shared belongings, packing and ruthlessly purging as much as we can.
Because we don’t know specifically when the closing will be, it’s really hard for me to make any plans for finding a place to live. If we close the beginning of October, I’ll drive to my mom’s in California, begin looking for a place, then fly to Houston at the end of the month for International Quilt Festival. If we close the middle of October, I’ll drive straight to Texas instead, stay with friends in Austin, then drive to California the second week of November.
Either ways it’s overwhelming with so many logistics; putting everything in storage, shipping supplies for 5 classes in Houston, not knowing when I’m going to get to the west coast to look for somewhere to live, having no forwarding address, etc…
On Wednesday I take a short break from packing and fly to Springfield, Missouri to give a lecture and teach a workshop for the Ozark Piece makers guild show, then fly back Saturday to resume packing and maybe? by then I’ll have a better idea of when I’m actually going to be moving.
