My dear sister helped me clean my room today. Wow, so much floor space. How does she do it? So far I've only had minor difficulties locating stuff.
And I was of use to her too, by instructing her in knitting.
My mom called and we talked for a while. I now have a Plan. Two plans, actually.
Plan A: I pay for a rental van and mom drives my stuff to Brosvika.
Pros: much cheaper than using a moving firm. Don't have to worry so much about stuff being damaged in transit. Mom gets to see her parents outside of summer.
Cons: only that it won't be possible if the weather is severe.
Plan B: I store all but essentials in mom's basement, move to Brosvika with the bare necessities, and plan A is executed in Spring.
My mother is a wonderful and kind person, and I hope weather permits our planned trip to happen sooner rather than later.
