Moving!

Hi all–been away for a few days so I could put all my energy into getting ready for our move (along with still trying to be a nice wife and mommy)! 🙂

So here we are. A week away from our ten mile move. You’d think with it being such a short distance, it would be less to do and less stressful! But the reality is, the entire house still has to be packed, loaded, and cleaned and then unloaded and unpacked at our new house. Here’s my tentative schedule for the next week, we’ll see how well I can stick with it. It seems I’ve learned something new with each move we’ve had (four moves in our seven years of marriage). Hopefully, I keep putting in to practice things I learn!

Saturday 2009Nov21: Garage, Garden, Outside Toys, Upper porch, and Continue to de-clutter taking the extras to Salvation Army, Crisis pregnancy center or the resale shop.

Sunday 2009Nov22: Continue to de-clutter, pack non-essential household

Monday 2009Nov23: Non-essential household, upper storage and basement storage.

Tuesday 2009Nov24: Non-essential household

Wednesday 2009Nov25: Kitchen as much as possible, Toys besides the few toys remaining out for moving day entertainment

Thursday 2009Nov26: [Thanksgiving Day] Finish non-essential household

Friday 2009Nov27: Take down table, Take down futon, Finish all other packing besides the Saturday last minute

Saturday 2009Nov28: Pack up current bed linens, pack up fridge and freezer items, load up truck, take down gates.

Am I forgetting something? Probably–I’ll just have to cross that bridge when I come to it!

Anyone in Northern Illinois wanna come help load up a truck?
