Unpacking is also not fun, kitchen and bathroom are done. Bedroom is getting there. Just doing major rooms while waiting for a furniture delivery and enough to get me to work everyday. I'm not sure where to put anything, as everything had a place in last house (lived there 15 years). It is an adjustment, but everything will work out. Dogs are not real happy, but they are coming around.
Great idea on the dryer sheets! I will do that for sure.

I wasn't sure which box of space bags to buy, so I just went for the big pack ($40 at bed bath and beyond, plus 20% coupon). Included are 2 travel ones that I think will be great for vacations. Why didn't I buy them before!?

Just scheduled my utilities in my new place. My current energy company sent me a letter of credit, so hopefully that helps keep the deposit down. This is my first experience in requiring a utility deposit! I have had utlities in my name for nearly 20 years at a couple of different companies and never had to do that before.

Because the stuff I am moving is so little, I have not done any major packing yet. I am confident I can do it in a day.

I leave in 9 days!

Went through a couple of totes of pictures. Man, I took pictures of EVERYTHING (still do) and when I would get them developed I would ALWAYS get doubles...they were free so why not? So I sorted out probably 7 hundred zillion prints, tossing all of the envelopes into the recycling bin.

I also packed a couple of boxes

I see the kitties are helping. Jasper is already at our new place. My daughter is staying there, and felt too alone, so, Jasper is now situated in his new home.

Right after that picture was taken, the orange cat booped the dog on the head.

I have decided to get rid of all old appliances, I bought a new small white microwave today, toaster oven, coffee maker, and two 32" flat screen TVs

Put away things in the new house, worked for a few hours, now back home, contemplating the work for the weekend.

Mom is up helping for 10 days to start getting things into boxes and prep for the first moving sale. Doing a dump/Goodwill run here shortly and then they will start boxing books. Our place has been rented and we are just dialing in on our timing/flights now.

Work has been absolutely crazy too this week, so I get home and am too tired to do anything/just can't make any more decisions. We are in that limbo period of a bit too far out to really pack and sell things and a bit too close in to not do anything. I wish lighting a match was an option!

2 Goodwill runs today.
Cleaned garage and what didn't go to friends or Goodwill is going to the local dump on Wednesday; along with a mattress/box springs and bed frame.
Removed all non perishables from pantry and packed.
Took down all pictures and bubble wrapped.
Put all extra comforters/blankets in large bag that zips.

I am at T-14, for the movers! Freaking out now. Was planning on going thru things from storage at the new place, now the goal is just get it put away for now. Today, have to seriously work on putting storage stuff away, and make runs with my stuff to new place. Next weekend is it. This week, I better work every day after work.

This moving is hard. I am not moving for a long while.
