This week has been insanely busy. My wife and I exchanged many e-mails and phone calls finalizing the division of our "stuff"... and boy, we have a lot of it! We've got antiques, leather couches, appliances and "big boy's toys" coming out the wahzoo. I can say there wasn't a single item we disagreed on. I was frankly astonished by my wife's kindness and thoughtfulness throughout.
I haven't seen behaviour like this since we were newlyweds. Sadly, it's too little, too late. She's burned too many bridges with former friends, neighbours, my entire family and even (to a much lesser extent) me and kids to ever fully recover in their eyes.
Today, the big move begins. Much stuff from the waterfront house is being moved to my wife's new little house in town along with selected items from the house which we are selling. I will have no involvement with this part of the move at all... the doggies and I will be doing a disappearing act. On Sunday, I will be moving a great deal of my stuff, most of it in storage all over the place, into the waterfront home.
I won't actually live in the waterfront house until our other house sells. We have concerns about it being left vacant while it is up for sale. Potential buyers continue to look at the house at a slow but steady pace. The response has been very positive but so far, but the "perfect buyer" is elusive. Our house requires a family with children who are willing to live out in the country and are very well off, as the house is a bit "high end." My wife is very confident that we are close to a sale. I'm very much less confident about it, but time will tell.
Nothing else to report, so how about some eye-candy? All pics from http://maledelivery.tumblr.com.
