Yes, the move.
We move in three days, over the friday/saturday and I am exhausted already!
I have to get cleaning this house up so that I don’t feel so overwhelmed. Of course that means finding the energy to do it. I have to steam clean the carpets yet, clean the floors/cupboards/closets. The walls, save a couple which are covered in graffiti (the joys of children – and this is teenage graffiti not fit for most people to look at), are pretty good – we painted a couple of years ago. The graffit walls will be painted. Good enough I hope because I don’t have the time, money or inclination to do more. We have a good ‘one coat white’ paint that I hope will manage to cover the marks.
We have loads of furniture yet…a load for our daughter (in storage) until she gets a room or a place, for us – the piano, table and chairs, computer and table, tv/electronics, three dressers, two beds, a bunk bed set, some boxes, the garage (yikes on the garage) and I think thats it. Sounds so little…I like it in a list! In person, it’s not as great.
Here’s the plan…tomorrow carpets will be cleaned. Also, I’m hoping we have all of the stuff for our daughter in storage – including her couch/chair. All bedding will be washed tomorrow and hopefully we can move a load to my parents in the meantime. Then friday it’s a trip to the dump, tackling the nasty garage and we’ll take as much as possible in the truck out to my parents. Hopefully we can do this without renting a big truck. Money is money and the more we have right now the better. I can’t believe Christmas is coming so soon. Final cleaning and loads on saturday and we’re done. Again, I like this in a list, lol.
