8 days!

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.

    WOW…things are moving fast now!! I am so excited for your family and the move. At the same time…knowing I will never be in your current home again brings tears to my eyes when I think of all of the fun times we had there. But…time to start a new chapter and I’m sure that will provide many more wonderful memories over the years to come. Love…Mom

    How exciting. Enjoy every minute of your choices. It was great to begin with, but will so much better when you make it your home. I agree about the tiles over the stove. The couple seemed to make great choices and it is interesting that they didn’t follow the theme. Maybe a few tiles can be switched out. They do it in bathrooms all the time. I am sure you will make it wonderful over the stove. I am sure Keira is excited to have a queen bed and new bedding. I can’t wait to see the decorating. You both have a way with color and design. Love you all so much!

    Where did the great Christmas picture go? You appeared to being having a blast. There is nothing better than family. Hubby was blessed with his choice of a wife and a bonus that he also gained a great extended family.
