Here's what I'm looking at.
end of July: #2 born
first of November: begin new job a few states away
In between, we need to pack, sell our house, buy a new one, find housing for MIL, etc.
I've begun a spreadsheet of all the normal move things (turning on utilities, change of address, etc.) This is all pretty easy for me because I've moved several times as an adult.
But selling and buying a house is freaking me out, plus I don't know what to expect with birth of #2. (With DD1, my 12 week leave was simply a nightmare all around.)
Does anyone have any suggestions for planning this process, any advice, anything I can use to help make things go smoothly? I'm so overwhelmed and scared about all this, it's driving me crazy. I keep thinking this is an organizational challenge, but maybe it's a mental health challenge?
ETA: I should also add I'm curious if anyone has had experience using PODS or something similar to "stage" a house for selling and then again to move? DH is a major pack rat and although he's promised to get rid of some stuff, there will be a lot to remove from the house before ANYONE would even look at it. Oh, I'm getting a headache again just thinking about this.
