Another weekend at the old house trying to get it ready to be put on the market. Lord, I am so tired & sore. I don't know if I have given the full story behind this move, so I am going to give y'all a little background right now.
My father-in-law was a sociologist & an obsessive collector of books. He died just over 2yrs ago from colon cancer, and at that time his library was about 20,000 books. My mother in law couldn't possibly handle their enormous house (about 3,000 sq ft) & getting rid of the books alone, so my husband & I moved into their home & she bought a condo in Ann Arbor.
Over the past 2 yrs, dh & I have been trying to catalog & sell as much of the library as possible and get the house in sale condition. We have managed to sell about 5,000 books online but at this rate it would take a lot longer than anyone wants to spend on this.
Anyways.. the house is pretty well cleared out right now except for the books. We spent all day today moving the boxed books & cleaning the basement. Next weekend we get to paint, can you sense the enthusiam?
Right now my whole body is sore.. really sore... "oh my god I can't move" kind of sore. I am really dreading waking up tomorrow...
