NOW it is getting real

Thank you all for the well wishes and excitement for us.  We have been so fortunate to have such support from our IRL and virtual friends.

The kids had a great first day if school and birthday.  I still can't believe they are 12.  They really are becoming such great individuals.

We told them this morning that the move is on and they seemed ok.  I am sure we will have days that are not so good too.  But today they are on board and know that part of the weekend will be spent packing to get the house ready to sell.

G-man cannot get it together.   He is freaking out and creating a myriad of problems.   I finally got him to agree to stop going rogue.  Yesterday was a big fat waste of a day regarding preparation.  He spent all day in a frenzy and has nothing to show for it.

The realtor is coming tonight.

We truly will be laboring all Labor Day weekend....power washing the house and deck, packing, cleaning....

Additionally. ..I have a scout event with Bossy and we need to exchange a few things for Sassy.

Better put my sneakers on...Cuz now we are off to the races!


  1. Eeeek! Sounds busy (but exciting!). I'm moving too, but only 10 minutes away. And I have a solid month to slowly move my stuff in lol.

  2. Poor guy, focus man focus! We learn to do that in labor......

  3. We had just a few weeks notice to get packed and moved (like you, we *thought* it might happen, but had no confirmation until a few weeks before school started). We opted to all move at once, and try to get in as early as possible at the start of the school year. It worked out well, but it was a crazy insane time in our lives. Good luck! :-)
