I called and booked movers today. Yippee! That means we are getting close to moving day.
David the mover said we would need 2 trucks. Approximately $600 each. This will be the best $1200 we ever spent. I think Ironman was stunned when I first gave him the price but after thinking about it for probably 15 seconds he knew it was worth it. I did not book the packing service. Most of our stuff is already packed. And I don't really need professional packers to pack what's left. Just to drive 20 minutes. Besides I like to pack. I know, weird. I like to organize, pack, make lists........ all that good clean fun.
The Engineer left Friday for his job in Texas. He's going to have a hot July. He will also miss moving day. How did he wrangle that?
Dancer Girl is going to the beach with her youth group in one week. We still don't have a modest swim suit for her to wear. I'll be hitting the mall this week.
I.T. girl is going to spend a week at a music camp in Nasvhille.
So here is our July:
July 4th - eat too much
July 5th - start the vacation diet
July 10 - send Dancer Girl off to camp for a week
July 13 - CLOSE ON OUR NEW HOUSE
July 14 - move enough stuff ourselves to our new house. So we can MOVE IN! Why stay in the rent house when we have a gorgeous mansion with our name on it?
July 15 - Dancer Girl returns from camp late that evening
July 16 - Dancer Girl will sleep. I.T. girl and I will organize stuff in the new house. And Pack
July 17 - Leave for Nashville
July 22 - Return from Nasvhille
July 23 - Movers arrive at rent house 9am to move the big stuff. They are also going to unload and load and then unload again the stuff we have in storage. And there's A LOT of STUFF
July 24 - Unpack boxes.
July 25 - Take a nap
School begins August 18 so I'll have a good solid 3 weeks to settle into the new house. I'm pretty sure it won't take us long.
Gave my 30 day notice to our landlord. Actually I told her the very day we sealed the deal on the new house that we were moving out. She told me "just give me a 30 day notice when you know for sure" So I did! Felt SO GOOD. I do have to pay rent for July. Bluh. We are pretty sure we'll get our full deposit back.
And when we do?
I'm BUYING NEW FURNITURE! It'll "only" be $1500 but I can make that buy some good stuff at Pottery Barn.
Photos to come........... stay tuned
