I was just thinking about this. I bet everyone will be so happy when they don't here that phrase "the buyers" anymore. I know I will. Did I say y'all there right NCN? I spoke with my supervisor yesterday and I have to give 4 weeks notice so, if I give notice this week, that will bring me to the week before we move. Hopefully new contract papers will be signed today or tomorrow. I guess this may really be happening...tea with sugar in the raw and soymilk......have a great day. Jeannie

I have to work on the y'all myself. We didn't say that in the mountains as much as they do here in Union County. There are several different ways to say 'you all' fast. As long as you don't slip up and say youse guys (I am sure I got that wrong) you will be all right. I have to be very polite and bite my tongue when I hear double negatives here in Union County. I know Union County has to be the double negative capital of the world.

Jeannie, I don't think you will have any problem in NC. It is the people that come thinking we are all dumb and need to be enlightened that run into problems. Because we are not dumb and we don't need to be enlightened. Your biggest problem will probably be to find a native. You may move next door to someone from NJ. We have from 12 to 14 homes on our dead end street. We have had people here from Eastern NC, Florida, Charlotte, Greensboro, Stanley County, Iowa, Michigan and we came from Wilkes County via Fayetteville, Statesville, Denver, Colorado, Orlando, Florida, Long View, NC and five different home in the Charlotte area.

April is beautiful in NC. We have March winds in February, April showers in March, and May flowers in April. You may want to make your first little beach trip and see Orton Plantation. I understand from a neighbor that the flowers are at their best there in April.

Yes, I can understand that. It really makes all of us northerners look quite ignorant when that happens.

Thank you Karla, I would love it! Only thing is if everyone comes up we'll probably get nothing done. I don't even know where to begin to get things started. Yes, 4 weeks notice is required actually are they will take it out of your last pay. We're actually moving ourselves so this should be quite interesting.

You got my post before I changed the wording. Notice I took the you out. I did that for you since it would never be you, although it is an indefinite pronoun. I guess you could say ignorant, but we usually think rude. We will probably just be happy to get another good nurse. Your occupation will be a plus for you.

I am going to have another cup of coffee now. I went to bed early and got up early. I like that but it gives me no computer time some days, so I may be awol on this thread sometimes in the future. Just don't worry about me.

Best of luck with the move! My wife and I just moved in August - exciting and exhausting!! I'm hopeful we'll be here (in CO) for a while. It's supposed to be 60 degrees on Friday and Saturday! After 2 winters in Cleveland and a lifetime iof winters in MA, 60 degrees in February is most welcome!!

My usual 4 shots of espresso and a clif bar...no originality here!

We have always moved ourselves. My dh got really good at it. He does not have me pack the things in our furniture drawers. He takes the drawers out, loads the furniture and puts the drawers back in the furniture. When we get to our destination he takes the drawers out, puts the chest of drawers,etc. in the place it should be and then puts the drawers back in. No unpacking and everything is where it should be. If you will look at how many places we have been, you can see how many times we have done this. You will have to decide if your furniture is strong enough to bounce around on the road with this extra weight. My bedroom suit is sturdy Basset and we have had it for over 40 years. We do have a new bed.

One note on our moving method. If someone else is going to be helping your husband, there are some drawers that may need to be covered with a towel. I will leave that to your imagination.

60 degrees sounds like heaven to me. My husband and I were talking yesterday about how my son, soon to be 11 year old does not like much clothing. If it was up to him he'd wear shorts in a snowstorm. He got off the school bus yesterday in short sleeves and his jacket rolled up in his backpack. I told my husband, wait till he finds out we're moving in 5 weeks and he may very well be wearing shorts soon there. Hopefully that will be a little motivation for him to move.

Another little moving tip. I use towels as packing material for dishes and things that break--less packing material and fewer boxes. Although I have not moved since 1975, we were quite experts by the time we got to this home. Hope I never have to move again. I told my dh he has to keep living because I know my children will want me closer if anything happens to him. We older women take good care of our husbands, because they take good care of us.

That sounded awful, didn't it. I would still love him if he wasn't so useful.

I bought a fur lined coat last year to take on vacation to Colorado. I have to work on being able to use it here. I am lucky if I get to wear it six times a year in NC. Your spring coats will become your Winter coats here. Raleigh is a little colder than Charlotte.
