Finally got the contractor to commit to a date . . . woot!
He will be finished January 31st. In the 24 hours since we’ve known this:
Hubby ordered the blinds for the windows downstairs.
We scheduled the movers to come on February 1st to move the few large things out of our current house to the new-to-us house. YAY!
We scheduled the phone to be switched.
Hubby got on the horn with the new TV cable satellite people (no clue what his plan is) and got them scheduled.
Princess and I spent moolah on her new bedroom stuff (bedding since she’s getting a queen bed to replace her twin, warm window shade supplies, fun box wall hanging shelf things).
I cleaned out the beer fridge and the gatorade/water/pop fridge so they can be moved.
I moved almost everything out of the kitchen and unpacked it in the other house.
I moved the deck chairs and random decorative pots to the other house (can I just say how sad and lonely our small deck furniture looks on the ginormous deck?!)
I hired a painter to paint two bedrooms and an office after we move out of this house so we can get it rented.
We donated another car load of stuff to Goodwill.
We set up plans to pick up a trailer from a friend so we can move bookcases and a few other items this weekend.
Motivation – the end is in sight and I can’t wait to get into the new house! This Saturday will be our LAST SATURDAY NIGHT in this house . . . the house we’ve lived in since Dude was 3 and Princess was 8 months old.
