New Place

We were given the walk thru and keys to our new place.... I'm excited and freaking out at the same time. We have to turn over our old house to the new owners on 10/30 and the amount of work still to be done is really overwhemling. We started painting last night and it went well, but wow I really didn't realize how small this place is, I mean really it's not with the 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, but compared to the house it really does seem smallish, or maybe I didn't purge enough of the things I should have. We'll see once we move everything in and start accommodating rooms, but I have that gut feeling that I will be needing to get rid of more things. I was going to take pics of the vacant place but forgot to grab the camera as I was leaving the old house, as with much of my life right now, it's either packed, boxed, shrink wrapped or semi lost. I can't wait to be settled, in the disarray of the house I am, as my boss put it, not worth my weight in gold anymore, oh well he'll just have to deal for now it hard to work full time and pack and move, with two people on vacation.

Tell your boss he shouldn't have let two people go on vacation at the same time. It's his problem. Moving does stink, but remember, it will all be over soon. Breath....

Sending an understanding hug. We moved from a NY farmhouse with attic, basement and 2 barns to this little house in FL , 2 of my sons decided to move with us-(there goes the sewing rooms plans!) It was a blur for months but soon began to sort itself out. I threw out a lot more once we got here-you can only do so much at one time. Be patient with yourself and try to find humor in the chaos!!!

If you take it with you but find that ten years later you haven't opened the box yet... you probably don't need it after all. Deep breath. And another.

It is so hard to downsize!! We did it about 10 years ago.
