Moving on Up

I once heard that moving is the second most stressful thing a person deals with, second to a death in the family. I'm not quite sure that's true, but the process of getting your home ready to sell is certainly up there.

We're actually making good progress. Bill has a 5 day weekend (Good Friday and Easter Monday being stats, and so his flex day was bumped to Thursday - w00t!) and so we've been able to put some good time into getting stuff done. Yesterday Duncan had preschool, so we got some stuff done then. Today Rhonda took the kids - bless her. And tomorrow my parents are - at least for the morning. Duncan miss his nap today because of it though, and by 6 PM You can tell. So I said to Bill that we need to make sure he doesn't miss it tomorrow.

Today we got the master bedroom painted. What's quite amusing about this is that it is the one room we have never painted since we moved in 9 years ago. We find it quite funny that we're finally doing it now that we hope to sell. And it looks quite nice! And so clean! It's just an off white colour, but it just looks crisp. Tomorrow we need to do other paint touch ups in the kitchen, living room and stairwell. Then it's just finish decluttering - we're doing well there too, and finishing our good spring cleaning. Oh, and the outside, but considering how stormy it is out today (blustery actually), it will probably be Monday before we get to that.

So, some of it is a little crazy, but we're making good progress. We like to chit chat about our next home - things we'd like to see in it. Perhaps all new flooring and paint before we move in (keep in mind we don't have a new home yet). Let's hope that once we are live on the market things go quick.

I'm praying for you guys! Way to go on the decluttering. It's a wonderful process.
