The Hardest Part is Over.

At least it seems to be. We got our list of things to be done to the house and after all the fretting and worrying it looks like it will indeed be electrical issues, a couple of small plumbing items (gas and water) and removal of 3 trees. It will cost us about $1800. Tree guy comes Monday (decided to have a liscensed, bonded guy do it rather than my brother, who is quite capable but does not have liability insurance) and I am waiting to hear back from the other contractors for scheduling.
Now we have to start packing. Ok maybe the hardest part isn't over yet...I plan on weeding out and thinning down and totally decluttering as I pack. It will probably take the full 4 1/2 weeks I have left. (yes, really, I am a total pack rat and sentimental to boot. We have lived here for 6 years and managed to not really throw much away in that time).

Um... yeah. Besides unpacking and putting away the weeding and the packing is the hardest part. Sometimes when we moved I wanted to haul it all out and set a torch to it. Good luck!

Hope that my new old wheel will be up and going soon. The footman will be super easy to do... going to use some Hard Rock Maple from an antique (cir 1940's)coffee table that the movers totally trashed during our last move to Germany. Yes I still have the mangled pieces. It was from the set my parents started housekeeping with. I used to take naps on the bottom shelf of the table. Talk about sentimental items. Yeesh!

I use to be a pack rat also, then as I've gotten older I've started throwing out so much, I wish I could find the happy medium :)

Yeah, almost to the end :)
