Moving Out Quickly! (Part 2)

We are on Part 2 of “Moving Out Quickly”.  I am trying to hang on to my sanity while my house looks like it has been through an unnatural disaster.  Thankfully, I’ve had some flexibility with work and have been able to do a great deal of packing.  Here’s the run down on the last couple days:

We have officially bought out all of the Heavy Duty Boxes in the store

Day – 5: We called the electric company and water company to make sure we weren’t missing anything when it comes to transferring ownership.  We gave the realtor that information to pass on.  I opened a P.O. Box and sent a mail forwarding notice in to the Post Office.  I stopped by the kiddo’s school to write a note that she would now be a car rider.  So far she has not missed any school in this huge transition.  The Hubby and I packed up our offices and emptied the bedroom closets except for our clothes.  At the end of the night, in a move of desperation, I made some Thanksgiving Pancakes to add some cheer and use up items in our pantry/fridge.  They were a success!  After that, I used a little deep tissue massage to work out a knot in the Hubby’s back so we can press on for the next day.  The pressure is starting to build.  We are all super excited the house has sold, but now I feel like we are running out of time.

Life is Moving

Life is moving along, and we’ve been focusing on getting our camper out on the road all this week.  We still have a house to sell though!  It has been on our minds for a while but life has just been getting in the way of us preparing for it.  We are hoping to have the house on the market by 1 November, and that date is quickly approaching.  We have lived in this home for six years, which is a long time given our work.  This has been a wonderful area to live in.  I didn’t realize how positive South Mississippi could be.  But since the disaster of Katrina, this area has such a strong sense of community.  It is a different world than the South Mississippi I grew up with.  And I love it!
