The Big Move, Part 1

So, our house is under contract. Shortly we’ll learn if we’ll move forward to the part where we sit in a boring room and sign it all over. I am so excited for that day.

Don’t get me wrong, I love our house SO MUCH. But it will be good to be done with this part and move on.

I’ve scheduled movers and started hoarding boxes. I’ve also started getting rid of superfluous stuff like a madwoman.

Bags of my daughter’s old clothes going to a friend with a new baby girl. Bags of under-used toys and books going to the daycare. Bags of who-knows-what set aside for Purple Heart pickup. Goodbye, goodbye.

I also spend a lot of time on Craigslist looking up possible new homes. Because – whoops, oh yeah, we actually still have to live somewhere.

We have our “must have” list and our “nice to have” list. We’re looking at 3 apartments this weekend. We’re scaling down, so the smallest is a 2 bedroom and the largest is a 4 bedroom.
