I got a job offer today in our new hometown. I will finally be teaching the same place my DD will go to school. . Also, it looked like we wouldn't get a mortgage without me working, so this was a really important milestone in making this move possible.
Things are coming together. I packed up all the cloth diapers today which was hard. But keeping the house "show ready" with a stinky bin of dirty cloth diapers sitting around wasn't going to work, nor am I willing to do a water heavy load every day for just 3-4 diapers also wasn't going to fly. So they went in the box and it is disposable ones until we move. It is weird to have diaper trash to take out instead of wash to do.
I'm stressing out about appliances. Our new home has some, but needs others. If we bring ours, they won't match and we would be breaking the matching set here. But if we don't bring them then priority 1 after the move is going to be buying thousands of dollars of new appliances. On top of all the moving expenses! I suppose we will do it on credit, but I'm still struggling with the idea.
make the appliances part of the negotiations when you sell. Plus FWIW, appliances are bulky and heavy to move (think $$) and unless its a high tech fridge most of them are not that expensive.
