I’m getting accustomed to the unknown. I have no idea when the bank will kick me out of my house. I e-mail my contact there and don’t get any response. My most conservative estimate is June 1. But it may be a little later. I don’t know when things will be settled between my ex-husband and myself. We are arguing over where our daughter will live once I have to leave my house. He’s also petitioned the court to throw me into jail and fine me for losing my home. The legal wrangling has no end in sight. I don’t know when I am going to be allowed to start the new chapter of my life, one where I am living back in the mountains, back on familiar territory, with my family.
With all that uncertainty around me, I am tackling the things I do have control over. I’ve begun the process of packing up the house. I am assigning my possessions to bins and boxes and piles labelled “Keep”, “Sell”, “Donate”. I have gone back to the library for research material, this time on book promotion. And I’ve spent the last two days listing every bit of inventory I have on Etsy and marking it down 50% in a sale that is meant to raise money for moving and legal fees as well as to help pare down what I will be taking with me.
So should you be in the market for a bag or skirt with pockets, some jewelry or a pencil roll, head to my Etsy store and you can find everything there 50%, no coupon necessary.
