I am sure you have been losing sleep, wondering what happened with our house. You can tell I’ve been kinda busy with this whole moving thing that I haven’t even had a chance to post an update. Well, the good news is that we sold our house on the first showings. The fact that we didn’t have to clean the house for multiple showings was a Godsend and I could kiss those buyers for simply saving me from the complete nightmare it would have been to forensically clean the house one more time. I mean, come on.
So we’re sold, we’re messy and we’re now waiting for the next horror show – the actual move. Luckily, the purging and storing plan we were on helped a ton so we only have to pack up the remaining half of our belongings. J has quite aptly pointed out that the Storage Pod we used could now effectively be tossed into the ocean as we have clearly not missed one thing in there. (Well, I have missed my red jeans. Those are in there and I wanted to wear them the other day.) Don’t worry, we won’t actually throw it in the ocean, we’ll just pile it all into the new basement and look at it the next time we move.
All this aside, the nightmare of packing is still upon us. It absolutely amazes me how many boxes it takes to pack it all up. Linens and pantry items, clothing and dishes. Its a lot of stuff that we need to live everyday (ok almost everyday) and when you start pulling it out of the closets and cupboards and putting into boxes its a crap-load.
The actual move begins a week from today. Will we be ready? Will everything make it to the new house relatively unscathed? Will I make it through the process relatively unscathed? Will our kids make it through the process and not want to kill us at the end? Ugh. What were we thinking. The old house was great, wasn’t it? Damn you society for making us want to go bigger and better!
Wish us luck. We’ll probably need it…
