Procrastination

In a about three weeks we'll be closing on our house, and moving out. Despite the fact that date will be here before we know it, we've done virtually nothing to prepare. No services have been canceled, our address hasn't been changed, nothing is packed that wasn't packed prior to even putting the house on the market, nor have we really gotten rid of anything.

The thing is that we still haven't gotten official word the buyer has financing lined up. The deadline for that is the 10th, and so we've been dragging our feet this whole time just in case something falls through and we don't have to move. The last thing I want to do is spend a lot of time packing everything up, only to have something go wrong and end up having to unpack everything again. Or worse, cancel all of our services and then try to get them all hooked back up later on short notice. Plus most of the stuff in the house at this point are things we use at least semi-regularly.

I don't have any reason to think things will fall through, so to some extent this level of procrastination is silly. All it does is mean more stress in a couple weekends when we are trying to clean up everything at once. Perhaps it is laziness in not wanting to start a major project, or maybe just subconsciously being sad to leave the house.

Regardless, at the moment we're not making much progress on preparing to move.
