Whoever came up with that vacation concept was right on track! I could do that more often, ya know!
We spent the first several days packing and we really got a lot accomplished. This included moving firewood to my mother-in-laws house – some of which will stay there and some of which will go to the new house once we settle in. The attic is empty, save a few pieces of furniture that need to come down. One of the fridges will also go to the MIL’s, the other will go in the garage in the new house as they’re leaving the one that’s there. The microwave goes to a niece, the washer and dryer are being purchased by the buyers and the spare bedroom set is going to friends tonight.
My new house is going to feel pretty empty. We’ve decided that our current bedroom set will go in the second bedroom and we’ll buy a new set (with a king size bed!!!) once we paint the master bedroom. The desk will be set up in the third bedroom. Our living room set is going in the family room downstairs which leaves only two recliners and some end tables for the living room. I don’t have a dining room set (well, at least not a “formal” set – what we have is going in the great room) so that’s going to be empty, too.
Yikes, I’m going to need a second job just to be able to furnish my home! What fun it’s going to be though!
The countdown is now on! August 24th can not get here soon enough. Relieved as I am now that the P&Ss are signed, I’m going to feel a whole lot better once I have the keys in hand!
