kitty, i can imagine how frustrating that is. i hope that you can manifest them getting out of there and making space for you to move in!!
magpie, welcome to the group! and have fun with the getting ready. i t can be an amazing journey!
i have done just what you are going to do, and it SI hard and scary and sometimes panicky, but you will survive, and flourish. i know that the first while was hard on me, but i blossomed in MY new home, absent from the stress and sadness and hurt of living with someone that its not working with. all the best to you on your new adventure. keep us posted!
we are finally approaching our moving day. i have been steadily getting ready for the past 6 weeks but now i feel like i can just get it ALL done without worry of needing things or having it be too soon.
we live rurally and had a bunch of recycling & garbage that needed taking to the dump. ect..and we got that done in the last few days..big relief for me. my new town has garbage pick up, yay! and the recycle depot is just a few minutes from my house, another yay!
we have some outside things, like a bike trailer and a few outdoor toys that we plan to take so i scrubbed them all down..
im doing all of the house laundry and packing it away so that it doesnt get re-dirtied. sadly, its rained for the last week, so i have had to use my dryer a bunch, which i hate to do!
i have taken apart my sons ikea loft bed and sanded all of the pieces, its about 4 years old and over the years has gotten a bit beaten up. im happy to report with an hour or so of work, they all look brand new.
and today i also sanded an old neet desk that my dad made my brother as a child, and im in the process of painting it green. its going to look great!
i have a bookshelf that im also going to paint the same colour, hopefully tomorrow.
we get the moving truck monday, so im planning to pack it all up, save our mattresses and sleeping stuff, clean the house, sleep and then go first thing in the morning (im planning to pack up the fridge and freezer bright & early, and wash them out once its all in coolers). its about a 9 hour drive, so we want to leave early so we can get there by early afternoon...and to avoid the hot hot heat.
im nervous, but excited. i just hope that its all as easy as i think it will be.
the carrying boxes and furniture will suck, but it will be done once its done..
mostly i guess its the long journey that concerns me..cats, dog, kids, stuff. its all a lot to think about.
