Thursday Thirteen


Today they are closing on my current house. As of today we will not own a home until October 24th. What a strange feeling! It has made me realize how close this move is now and the things I need to do to prepare. Here is a list of 13 things I need to do before we move.

1. Tackle the garage. I have attempted this many times but just stop and get overwhelmed. I'm baffled. I can't decide what needs to stay, go or be thrown away. Doug will be helping me with this during the week.

2. Fill out the withdrawal paperwork for the kids' current school.

3. Fill out paperwork to enroll kids in new school.

4. Have a long talk with Taffy explaining the move to her and comforting her while she realizes that she will miss her bunny friends.

5. Throw some things away from basement.

6. Clean furniture in basement.

7. Dust furniture so the movers don't get dirty :)

8. Pack up items that movers won't move and take them to new house.

9. Clean new house.

10. Paint Robyn and Garrett's new bedrooms.

11. Starve the african frog and beta fish to death so I don't have to move them in my car. Just kidding, you know I couldn't live with the guilt.

12. Call B water company.

13. Cry because I'm going to miss this house, friends and the city in general.

I'm so sad :( I have to keep reminding myself that you're only an hour away. It could be worse, you could be out of state. I'm so glad you're not.

Good luck. I'm sure it could be completely overwhelming. At least you have movers and don't have the stress of moving it yourself too

Movers make life so much easier. I feel like a pro mover by now, which I hate! I'm so glad we can still "see" each other thanks to the world of blogging! How are the kids taking it?
