I feel like I have been caught in a whirlwind. I have been out of pocket all weekend, but I am (currently, though subject to change) excited about gearing up for the move. I want to get the house all cleaned up and start packing. I feel like we should get it cleaned/organized before we pack it up. This may seem illogical, but that way I will know where everything is so I can pack it in a more organized fashion.
Each time I've moved (which has been all-too-frequent in the last 4 years), I like to pack like-things together and label the box of EVERYTHING that is in it. I want to know where everything is when I start to unpack.
We also want to snap a few pics of our current house since it is our first home together. We have a few pics from Christmas and when I made a project, but I want to be able to remember our first place. (And I want to show you our before and afters)
So this is our to-do list:
Take pictures of our house now
Weed out all our clothes and junk we are going to sell
Gather all our yard sale item in one corner
Put prices on everything
Plan a going away party
Make signs and post online about yard sale
Have said yard sale and going-away party
Count our stash made from the yard sale (yeah right)
Whatever we don't sell, give to Goodwill
Go home for mom and dad-in-law's birthdays (conveniently on the same day)
Fix all the holes we put in the walls so we can get our deposit back
Deep clean the apartments so we can get our deposit back
Pack the last bit before the move

(You can see my priorities are in all caps.)
We (...I) have lots of projects planned for the new place. I'm sure Josh is going to love this DIY phase I am in right now. I want to turn the door we picked at a flea market into the dining room table. This is our Number One project, so we can have a space to work on as well as eat (since we are selling the big chunky desk Josh has). I want to make one bench seat for the table and the rest will be chairs, maybe mismatched flea market chairs, maybe new.
Stay tuned for updates...
