Slowly but surely getting there

Today Im in the process of washing all the laundry and packing up what we dont need for the next few days. On Monday night we'll grab last showers here and I'll do whatever gets dirty from today forward. By tonight the only things that should be out laundry-wise is 2 towels, a dish rag, a dish cloth and 4 days worth of clothes.

No, the picture to the left isnt a picture of ours. I wish it was though as it's so much more organized than the piles we have here. Anyhow today we finished up the little bit that was in the guest room and got all the boxes that were already done in there so we didnt have to keep stepping around them. In the process I found something in the bedroom and livingroom. It was something we dont see normally so I had to get online to check and see if Google had a picture of it. Sure enough the description under the pictures was the following word: FLOOR. Is THAT what it looks like? Damn I had no clue. I thought everything pretty much had gotten the hang of hovering everywhere. Oh and I figured out we actually DO have a closet in the corner! Who'da thunk?

Got an email a couple days ago (can I bop my hubby on the head for not sharing when it came in?) that stated that the company would be calling him with the address a week before we're scheduled for moving in. Someone tell me how helpful this is when address changes at the post office take 2 weeks to go into effect?? *Bites own tongue*. I think at that rate that we'll just need to keep the mail going to his folks' house until we're ready to go into permanent housing because I am NOT going to go through that hassle again. Lord knows what's going to happen to the post after the 9th when we leave as no one will be here to get it. We may have to have the next door neighbor just forward it on to us for a couple weeks. hmmm

Got a call today that the company doing the moving for us will be here on Monday to pack and Tuesday to load. The company responsible for transporting the Gran Torino will be here Tuesday to pick up the car. On Wednesday, Thursday or Friday a cleaning service is coming in to do a "make ready" cleaning for us. We'll be gone by the time they show up but the neighbor still has a key so he can let them in. Hubby's got ahold of all the utility companies and everything will be turned off by the 22nd...this way the house can be shown for about a week in fully functioning order. We'll be having the pest control company come in for one last spraying and the propane company to fill the tank with another 100 gallons so that should be a plus in selling as they wont have to put out money for heating right away.

Guess that's it for today. *HUGZ*

Well, at least everything's getting done out of the way. Admittedly you've hardly got time to blink with everything needing to be sorted so quickly, but at least things are progressing nicely.

Good luck!

I agree with Tori,it may not be organized but hey at least it's getting done.I'm sure it's frustrating trying to get everything sorted out just for when this ones coming and that one is coming etc etc.You're doing a great job with all of that!! Hugs!

*takes a moment..blinks...inhales, exhales*

Thanks you two :)

Well..once it is over and you get your permanent address and all you can do the inhale exhale thing..Unpacking and organizing was always a pain in the ass to me...

I dont do too badly packing...at least 2/3 the way through. When it gets to the last minute little things that dont seem to match up with anything else or got forgotten when the first batch of that item got packed...well I find that annoying. Yes. Unpacking is a pain in the ass though.

And here I was admiring the neat and tidy pile of boxes and chairs in that pic. :p

Hang in there, kiddo. This is all being done for a very good reason. *hugs*

LadyStyx said...

So what all are you still packing, if you have a company coming to pack and load?

LadyStyx said...

I was doing the typical Styxie thing and trying to get most of it done so the boxes would be labelled so I knew exactly what was in each box. Yeah, I know, rather anal-retentive of me but I like to be able to put my hands on what I want at a moment's notice and NOT have to search 50 boxes for the ONE item Im needing....

We managed to get roughly 2/3 of the house packed on our own.
