Does anyone else hate to move? Because I realized this weekend, that it is a task that I really do not enjoy. Finally after 9 years, we are buying a house, an amazing house, and trust me I am so excited about it! It has way more space then we have now, an extra bedroom (4 total), a family room in the basement, and an actually laundry room. And it is convently located 5 minutes from both of my girls schools, now we are 15-20 minutes away. And I don't know about anyone else, but mornings are NOT my most favorite time of the day. For some reason it is all I can do to get my kids, and myself out the door with enough time to drop them off at school, and drive all the way back across town to make it to work by 8am. I know my boss is seriously annoyed with the morning phone call of.... I'm stuck in the car line, I'm running about 5 behind! Oh and were buying so what could be better then no longer having to throw money away each month on rent? I can tell you, since we are doing owner financing, the people living there now opted to not buy ( too much space for them, or something) so they said they would be out by the 20th. We give notice where we are now that we will be out by the 22nd figuring that gives us two full days to move. Well on the 19th we find out that she will not be out until possibly the 23rd or 24th, but for sure by the 1st. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?!?! We had to be out of our house yesterday, as the new renters are moving in on the 24th. So in the last 24 hours we have moved our stuff out of the old house, into a u haul, and now we get to sit and wait for the next two days while we see if she will be out. If she's not out, then we get to move all of our stuff to storage for a grand total of 6 days until we can move in. FUN, FUN TIMES. All of this while we are stay with my in law's - thank goodness they are letting us stay with them, because I do know that having to pay to stay in a hotel and waste that money would annoy me even more than I am already annoyed.
To top it off, I sell Thirty One part time ( like you didn't know for reading my blog) but our new catalog comes out in 9 days. I have tons of people wanting to set up dates for party's, get catalogs mailed out, I have about 10 giveaways and 3 online/catalog party's going on or starting in the next 10 days. All of my things are packed up, I am really stressing about that because these are things that I need to get done. And the longer it takes for us to get into the house, the longer it will take for me to get organized! Thirty One is one of the things I really want to focus on this year, and this whole moving thing right now in the middle of a catalog change is not helping things at all.
I love the joy's and stress of moving :) And I know that if I can hang on for just a few more days that we will be moving into our wonderful new house, I just don't deal well with not being in my own space.
