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.

Choosing the Realtor

The Hubby and I have been talking for a while now on what company we were going to choose to be our realtor.  To be honest, our credit union has a great program that cuts refunds back to you some of commission your realtor gets from the sell of the house.  We have found though, from our experience that most of the realtors who opt in for this program are inexperienced and are trying to drum up business for a good reputation.  We don’t want to risk having a not so good realtor putting our house on the market so we have been shopping around on our own and won’t be using this program.
