On this Thanksgiving weekend, my son and I are on another major threshold. I finally got the all clear to proceed with the sale of my condo and relocating to Vancouver Island. We hadn't started anything for the past month, afraid to jinx the process. So now the crunch is on and so much to do, but this will not be the first complex move in our lives. I can't see it being as bad as the last move in 2011.
So, before the realtor can set up our listing, we first need to 'try' and stage the condo as a regular condo, complete with living room, dining space etc. What you say? Well, since my son joined me, his bedroom was the living room, the dining area and den became my studio and my bedroom, well, became office, storage, my living space and where I slept. That being said, every available nook and cranny is crammed with both our belongings.
The process to get the condo will have its hurdles but in the end, it will all be worth it as we will then be in a good living arrangement and with studio/work spaces for each of us. We both also feel strongly drawn to the art community and First Nations communities on the Island.
So one day at a time. Oh, and if you'd like to help this family with its transition, you can do some window shopping during my Fall Sale on the 'Buy Now' tab above (which ends on Oct. 22nd). ;-)
Regards to all.
