countdown is now well and truly on. We are finding so much that we need to do,
and so much we want to do before we move.
we are getting the wheels in motion to rent our house out when we go. So we
need to meet with real estate agents and work out what we still need to fix
before we rent it out. We also need to find time to do this work. Also the real
estate agents want to take photos, so I need to make the house look like a show
home (impossible – incidentally can anyone explain why we need to have photos
taken? We never saw any when we were renting back in the day!).
Country Boy has been putting leaf guard on our guttering, and repainting the
trim of the house to match the guttering (something I have been wanting to do
since we moved in – better late than never). My mother kindly came and washed
down the walls of our (awful) laundry to remove the dirt/dust etc of this
neglected room in our house. I have been doing more sorting of our
“stuff” trying to get rid of things we don’t need or use and convince
the girls to get rid of the toys etc they never use (mostly unsuccessfully).
|A few more piles like this are needed!|
also trying to wind down our involvement in some of the activities we do. Next
weekend our church has it’s annual fete. The Country Boy has been in charge of
the plant stall for several years, so he is busy getting his plants ready. The
girls are excited about the fete, and I am planning a pep talk on not buying more crap for me to throw out too
much. After this we are trying to clear the calendar as much as possible.
when life seems so busy. I know that it is only for a few weeks, but really,
will it be any saner at the other end when we are trying to unpack, enroll in
schools, meet people etc? I hope so!
