Well, we've put in a bid on a house, and it was accepted! Oh, and don't worry, it wasn't Vacant and Easy to Show! I've been afraid to say too much about it, afraid of jinxing it and having the process fall apart somewhere along the line. If all goes well, we will be moving the weekend of May 16th, which is the same weekend that I'm graduating from college with my Master's in Severe Special Education. (Perhaps my next post topic...) So of course things are looking to be a little hectic for the next couple of weeks.
Our house was WAY OVERDUE for a decluttering. I was just starting to get into "baby steps" like the Flylady suggests when all of this started. So the process of weeding out and figuring what to keep and what to toss is really overwhelming me right now. Roland works for a truck rental company and ordered boxes from a vendor they use. They should show up today or tomorrow. I think maybe once I am able to start putting the things I know I want to keep in boxes, that might help me to feel more like I'm making progress. Right now I'm just moving things around, going through piles, trying to throw things away and organize the best I can. I am so overwhelmed!
A little while ago, Michelle asked me to see if I could find any traditions for moving into a new home. I've just started poking around online and found the idea of taking Paige's picture out front every year, having a special dinner when you move in and celebrating the "anniversary" every year, stuff like that. Anyone have any ideas?
