So many PCV’s are much younger!  And that usually means they have a leased apartment, maybe still staying with parents and can “pack’n’go.”  Owning a home makes the prep much harder, but we are working through it.  Barbara sold her car.  I have found someone to ‘lease’ my car until we return.  Actually, I will sell it for a dollar and buy it back for a dollar….MORE PAPERWORK!  We have found a home for one cat, Randolph.  And maybe a good home for Scrapper, but we are still looking…just in case.  Lots to do!  Wills, power of attorney, taxes, rental agreements, credit cards and bank accounts.  Mail!  Verizon cancellation, service contracts for HVAC, and appliances etc.  The list is too long and would bore you.  We have a spreadsheet for tasks and one for budgeting, and we schedule a couple of hours each week to meet and review our next steps.  So the adventure begins WAY before staging and departure.
