The house is a total mess, but I'm almost ready for the move.

I've got bins and boxes full of things to take with me (tons of art supplies and materials), home decorating things, books and all sorts of office supplies and other things. THEN, there are the boxes of treasured items packed up so they'll be here and intact when we return. Also have stacks of stuff to cram into the car...mostly clothes and oversized or awkwardly shaped things. The car will be in the container with the pallets of things we're taking.
We go over on the 13th of August to look for a two bedroom house...apparently unfurnished is mainly what is on the market. So, we're taking some makeshift things like folding racks and those closet storage bags that hang from the rod and a card table, etc. Once we know what, if anything is supplied, we'll fill in the gaps with whatever is needed and start looking at garage sales, thrift stores and some places that sell excessed hotel and condo furniture. In the meantime, our living room will be folding lounge chairs and trunks that held pots and pans, etc.
I'm taking a lot of the old faithful craft stuff with me...like materials/thread/sewing machine for making clothes, cool bags and maybe curtains. But, I have some ideas using native products like coconuts and drift seeds so have put in tools and materials for those. My poor studio is being filled with pieces of furniture I don't want left out for the kids to use, My room is also going to be locked and off limits. We're renting the rest of the house to my son and my niece and her fiance. Boy, am I a strict landlady! I've got watchdogs for the place and have covered just about everything in the rental agreement.
We're planning to stay on Maui for a year until my health improves and I can regain some mobility from the RSD damage. I'm excited, worried and busy, busy, busy! The annual family reunion is before we go....in fact, next week! So we're busy packing up for that, too!
I've been looking at laptops.....anyone have any favorites or warnings on brands? I'd sure appreciate the advice!
