Out with the old

Who wants to see their lightbulbs? Not I.

Posts pending

I am pretty exhausted. We havent even moved, but for 3 nights straight we have been at the new place dealing with little stuff. And oh my... there is ALOT of little stuff.

Finding and replacing 8 bulbs. One dead fixture(RIP)

Figuring out WHY there are 4 switches for the same 2 lights... and which ones you leave on so the other ones work.

Trying not to gag when I look at my kitchen handles. I tried to clean this one a little bit, but never got thru the protected layer of grease.
Dont you worry---they are in the process of being replaced. By this time next week, that is a promise. Its a matter of picking one to replace all 24 handles with... but first the cupboards need to be cleaned. and cleaned and cleaned.

Carpets got cleaned yesterday--pics of that coming. Free advertising for the man.

Getting the place cleaned... that poor girl that Im paying... she may just have to move in.

Trying to get rid of the wood chips! Is FREE not cheap enough? And there are more where that came from!

So yes--tired... and probably wont get to update during the move.
I just dont see how I will get around to downloading pics from camera before unplugging the pc... and no internet til Monday.. oh--that should be relaxing!
If I ever figure out how to upload more than one picture with out them getting all jumbled.. I just may do some before and after for my 1 reader :)

Tick Tock

Before we know it we will be there!!!
Saturday we have a date to walk thru and I hope it goes well.
The sellers are MESSY. So we really havent seen the place in its best light.
I wonder if it will seem bigger or smaller with out all the stuff in it... on one hand all that stuff shows how BIG it is... and on the other with out the stuff... we will see the actual space. *Fingers crossed* that all the STUFF is gone.

It took me a while to realize there was a freezer and fridge hiding in the garage..
I also noted a frying pan, resting comfortably on a pillow in the garage on our last visit...
:@ <----- this is me, baffled, at the why and how of it was there... in the garage.

And wouldnt you know it---there is a window hiding back there.


Only 72hrs til it is OURS!
7 days til the move

P.S. One day Ill figure out how to format pictures correctly. And I have no idea how that text turned blue and is underlined--it just wanted to be. Ill add some pages to the blog, for the food and the to do list... and the MUST NOT WANT list.
