    We had a lot to move and a lot of downsizing to do, so we got a storage unit and started packing boxes early and put them in the storage unit. When moving day came, we had the movers pick up the stuff at the storage unit first.
Added bonus, it got the estra stuff out of the house to give it a less cluttered look which apparently appeals to house shoppers.

    I am going through something similar, getting ready to move in with some friends. Is this the sort of move where you have to get rid of things?

    The only advice I can give is don't leave your packing until the last minute. It just adds to the stress.

AGM Aftermath

Thursday, February 13, 2014

The AGM was a bit more intense than I expected. There were only maybe 15 people there, but a few people went around to get proxies, so there was quorum. Since 2/3 of the people there were either on the board or married to someone on the board I figured there wouldn't be too much controversy. But there was one person who wasn't on the board (but had previously been on the board) who just kept stirring the pot and wouldn't let anything go. It was frustrating to watch. And I knew how hard my hubby and the rest of the board had worked - and what an excellent job they had done with managing all the crap they had to deal with, so it made me angry that she was giving them a hard time. DH handled things really well though.

Afterward I thought we'd both be excited about him relinquishing his responsibilities but it was actually pretty sad for both of us. Just seeing how much the other board members and their wives are sad to see us go and how much they appreciated the work DH had done. He really built some great relationships, and it put in perspective that moving out of the building means not seeing those people around anymore. Plus it was apparent that it would continue to be challenging for the board as all the rest of the same board members were acclaimed again plus controversy lady. It would be nice for them to get a break, but no one else shows up or has any interest in serving on the board it seems.

Anyway, we had already designated Friday as our celebration day for Valentine's Day plus the freedom from board responsibilities, and I think that will work out well. We'll have some time to process and let go of that part of our lives and turn our focus forward to the next chapter. Obviously it's a bigger deal for my hubby letting go of that, but I was surprised how much it affected me too.
