I’m struggling to keep a positive attitude about selling the house and leaving Moscow. I’m sure everything is going as it should, just not as I would prefer. John and I want to leave now. There are still a bunch of things to clear out, though. I’m trying to motivate myself to clear out the garage. John cut down a couple dead trees yesterday. We’ll have to pay someone to cut down the biggest. We’re also working to find someone to put on a new roof.
I don’t want to be here on my birthday, which is two weeks away. I know I shouldn’t focus on what I don’t want, only on what I want. I need to psyche myself up.
