We have spent the weekend packing. I now have boxes everywhere in my house. OK, maybe not everywhere. My goal is to be able to say to the movers, "See everything in that room. You can take that." With that in mind we have been filling up our dining room since that is the first room you walk into we figured the movers will appreciate having so much stuff in one place. My quilt studio has also become a repository for boxes. There is a stack of bags and boxes for donating near the front door. The corner of the living room has become the area to put the items we are going to move ourselves.
Fortunately, our new condo is only five minutes away and we have two cars so moving some items ourselves won't be too difficult. We will be moving all of our artwork, my sewing machine, and whatever else we feel like moving.
Right now I am so tired of packing and feeling out of order I could scream. Moving wouldn't be so bad if we had done it in a more compressed time space. I started packing in late December and here I am eight weeks later and still packing. If I had to do it over again I would have taken this entire coming week off and started packing this weekend. I guess that's what happens when condo deals fall through.
I may not be around much until next weekend. We are having an Integrity Selling seminar for work on Tuesday and Wednesday which will take me out of the office two of the three days I will be in the office. We have our final inspection at 8 AM on Thursday morning, followed by the closing at 9 AM. We will be home owners by lunch time. Then we will start moving throughout the afternoon. The movers will be here at 7 AM on Friday morning and should have our place packed, moved and unloaded by 1 -2 PM. Our cable will get turned on between 3 and 5 PM. Then my computer guy will be our first dinner guest at 5 PM while he installs our wireless network.
Saturday my cutting/pressing island will arrive. My DIL is coming over to help me stain the sewing table, my old cutting table and the island. Between coats of paint we will unpack. Sunday will probably be a cleaning day for the old place.
Monday is a holiday for us and the office is closed. We have to meet the landlord in the old place in the morning. We have a close friend who owns a Hunter Douglas window treatment business. He is coming by Monday afternoon to discuss drapes and blinds.
We will be very busy. But, DH's spring travel schedule starts the end of the month and I have jury duty in March so we want to get as much done as possible in the new place.
Have a great week!
