That's great news. Will you be making a trip ahead of the move to find new living accommodations?

Thank you!

Mom is handling the rental aspect, I trust her judgement.

I just want to remind you to strongly point out to your mother that you need a place that allows cats. You're lucky your mom can do this for you.

Sounds more like someone needs a garage sale, to me. Time for the three-pile approach, PF. One is keepers, one is donate, and the last is pitch. Now all you need is a garage to hold the sale in!

IF there are no books destined for the new home, see if your local library would like them. I know ours puts the nice ones into rotation, the lesser quality ones are given to the Friends of the Library group. They hold a huge book sale twice a year to raise funds for library extras.

About three weeks, Dad will be here in two weeks and as soon as we can get the truck loaded, we are out of here.

The books stay with us...

And Taxlady, Mom knows about the cats and it's on her list of requirements.

Re-reading my statement, it sounded like I though you were taking NO books. Ack! Not at all! Books are..are...life! I meant if there were a couple of them not making the trip, the library would be one idea.

When we were moving from OH, I asked a friend who had just moved two states away for advice. Although Himself's company was moving us, we were trying to prioritize. While our house was up for sale, each time I headed to MA I would fill the car with "whatever". Gail suggested we take 1) heavy stuff and 2) stuff that might break and was irreplaceable. I would load the van up with boxes of books, up to the limit of the springs and shocks, then put Christmas decorations like vintage ornament boxes on top of the book boxes.

I just knew you'd get snapped up right away! Congratulations!!!

Try not to overtax yourself. Movers can be worth the cost and save you time and exertion. XOXOX
