you really want it to slow down! :) We've been staying busy trying to work out all the details of the move. I haven't started packing yet, but have decluttered a little here & there.
This week Geoff & I drove out to south-central PA to pick up a new-to-us sectional for our living room. We needed new furniture because we knew that what we have probably would not make it to WI in one piece. It would make sense to purchase something in WI, but when you can't afford new, and the area you're moving too has VERY little used, it was best to check out the overabundance of Craig's Lists in my area. On Monday night Geoff & his uncle squished it through our doorway. Geoff's newly wed (as in 1 week!) sister & brother-in-law are interested in our older stuff since they have nothing for their living room and thought they'd come this weekend. So, in my living room sat a sectional, couch, dining set (since our dining room became an office when Maleia came), rocking chair, recliner, and entertainment center. We made a "pathway" that we knew would last a week and then our home would come to some kind of order before the movers took everything away.
UNTIL, a phone call came in on Tuesday afternoon. Our complex manager wanted to show the apartment to a prospective tenant on Wednesday!! The next 24 hours was a flurry of organizing closets, pushing furniture around to look somewhat reasonable-ok somewhat reasonable is pushing it, but I tried! I went shopping with a friend to avoid embarrassment. :)
