Well, some productivity in reducing my stress levels at least this week! I finished school! I graduate May 5
now I can officially concentrate on things at home more. I got several pieces of furniture sold this week on Craigslist. Of course she paid me and wanted to pick up tonight, then emailed asking if she could come in three weeks! I already cleared the shelves off, so I asked her to come this weekend if possible.
DP and I made our budget through August. Seems like we will be able to make things work decently with all the moving expenses, and feels good to have that all figured out. Still trying to make a bit of extra money though. A friend who DJs is paying me to rip all of his (over 1000) CDs and deal with some back paperwork he has. Rather therapeutic for my OCD self, but has taken over my dining room somewhat. Also picking up some extra babysitting when I can.
Trying to get a lot of little projects done before the move. seriously considering a Scansnap s1300 to get our pics and paperwork all scanned so we can reduce what we're moving by several boxes. I've been using a friend's scanner (we have a flatbed and an all in one printer, but neither work well for thousands of photos). Am I nuts for thinking of spending the $250 on this?
Alright, goals for this weekend, though it is cluttered with non-moving related committments:
Enjoy relaxing with DP at a hotel for free one night (offered a free room after our last stay there,Nso we get a date for our anniversary early)
Go to leadership team meeting for local poly group, probably my last one
Get first box of CDs finished ripping (about 400)
Finish initial sort through of friend's papers
See if I can drop off taxes that are ready for the accountant with exh for him to take to get done in IN (where we lived at the time). I think two years are ready to go completely and getting those done willf be motivation to get the rest ready.
Make decision on buying scanner and order if we decide to
Make decision on changing cell phone companies/getting a tablet
Oh and supervise stepdad with 3 friends sleeping over tonight. We swap babysitting with their dad a lot, so it is our turn!
