One week...

Just one week left in this house... man - I'm so ready to be out of here!

Tonight as I was hauling trash cans down to the curb I could see into the living room windows. I couldn't help but think to myself... it isn't my living room, it isn't my house. My living room has red walls - the walls through the window are brown. This isn't my house.

The rooms are pretty much devoid of furniture - a few boxes and suitcases are scattered through out the house. I've pretty much finished sorting through the last of the clutter boxes. I've got one more carton to send to the shredding company thanks to a couple of boxes my eldest daughter managed to leave behind when she headed to San Diego. It was full of receipts and statements from 2002... there was only a small handful of stuff I thought she might want or need to keep... a very small handful.

I can't believe how tired I am at the end of the day... I was ready for bed at 6:30 pm tonight.

I have put a hold on a 3 bedroom townhouse with a garage in Pennsylvania and have requested a move in date of December 22nd. We have to be out of the MD apartment by the end of December - so that will give us a couple weekends (and the holiday) to make that move. So after getting out of here - we get to go and pack up the Maryland apartment and get ready to move out of there.

I'm pretty sure I'll be ready for a vacation in January! It doesn't have to be a week in the sun and the sand... nope - I'll be happy with a 'box free zone'... and with 3 bedrooms and a garage - that's going to be easy to achieve! WaaaHooo!

One week... in one week I'll be closer to that 'box free zone'.

moving out is never easy leaving behind the memories and sorting through life. moving in is never easy trying to figure out how to set up a new space so it functions like home. enjoy!

Living in limbo is the worst feeling....
BUT you do have a light at the end of the tunnel.AND NO it's not a train!

I always enjoyed moving... a new place a new space, LESS clutter!!!

I look forward to being closer and having a "Sister Day"

I hate to move!!!!! I'd rather lap out a toilet bowl......

You have done a wonderful job, Cheryl, and I hope Tom knows the magnitude of the load you have let him off the hook for. LOL

His apartment is all packed for you, right?!

I sent you a big envelope today, and I need to talk to you about it, before you send it on..... Call me when you get it, ok? It has a label, for Dakota's new quilt, in it.

Happy Thanksgiving, my friend. I hope it's calm and uneventful!
