When Jeffrey first started his new job and we put the house up for sale, we did a lot of sorting and donating, and Jeffrey took several trailer-loads of stuff down to Champaign and put it in storage. Then we pretty much stopped - because there's only so much you can pack up without making the house look completely empty. And we waited.
Well, now it's time to get back to packing - packing everything up, because we're really moving. We got an offer on our house, which we accepted. We signed papers. The buyer signed papers. The home inspector came today, and we've got some moving company representatives coming tomorrow to give us estimates on what it will cost to move the furniture and the rest of the big stuff.
In the meantime, I need to start packing everything up so Jeffrey can start taking trailer-loads of stuff again. Anything that I don't need in the next 5 weeks goes into boxes, and probably some of the stuff I do need, but I won't notice that until it's already boxed up, and I'll just have to figure out how to get along without it.
And, in case you missed the important part of this post - we have a buyer! Oh, and the fact that I'm going to be busy packing probably means I'm not going to have much time for blogging. Or facebook. Or reading those library books I want to read. Why do they all come in at the same time?
I am looking forward to living with my husband again.
