Get my passport back from US embassy, get to the end of the ironing pile, empty out the guest room of sheets and towels so I can use it to store everything we will take on the flight with us.... convince my husband to decide what he needs to have for the next 2 months until everything arrives !!

We will not be moving until next year, but I am sure it will take that long to get everything done! How nice to have a place to chronicle your accomplishments toward the ultimate goal of moving. Thanks Marylee!
We have been working on the house to get it ready to put on the market. So far we have completely gutted and renovated the master bath, put in 3 new storm windows and ordered 9 others to be placed when they arrive. I am currently stripping wallpaper out of the eat in kitchen area. We have stripped wallpaper and painted the hallway. I just had a yard sale last weekend, but will probably need to have at least 2 more when I get through junkifying!! My husband is currently working on the garage...he has put up new insulation and pegboard on one wall and painted another. Then new insulation and wallboard on another wall. It is coming along nicely! This past weekend we put down ceramic tile in the washroom and painted the walls. We are also researching our new location, which is how I found CD forum. Now I can read everyone's list of things they have done so that I don't forget to do anything when it is time for the big move!

Our house hasn't sold yet but we are packing non-essentials and I'm selling down our home inventory; mostly power tools at this point.
