Too late to slim down Christmas--we had done most of our shopping before we got the news that we were leaving. As for packing, we're going to start going through our "STUFF" and remember Carlin's opinions on the subject. But the actual packing goes to the relocation company. YEAH! I have packed and moved so many times that I've earned having somebody else do it. I don't even have to haul it across the country myself. We'll get rid of all we can, but for once, I won't have to leave some of my furniture, etc. behind.

When is your moving date, Casper? Sounds like it may be soon.

We're taking a big step by going through our storage unit tomorrow. We have to get out our indoor Christmas decor, so I decided that's the perfect opportunity to get it all gone through and packed up for moving.

Another good reason to tackle it tomorrow....highs in the 50s! We only have two days of that, so we'd better take advantage of it before the next warm up.

Default Key amenities when thinking about moving to Maine

Please call ahead to make sure your new home is equipped with the essentials.

The high-end up scale outhouse and of course, the nice warm outdoor shower made from lobster crates.




don't say we didn't warn you.....

Hey Forest, I was thinking the same thing! I've always wanted an outdoor shower. The beach house my in laws rented for us on the shore in NJ a few years back had one. The intended idea was you could rinse all the beach sand off before going in the house. To heck with that!! All of my body wash and shampoo / conditioner, etc wound up out there. I loved that thing!

I like the outhouse. What magazines or catalogs does it have in it?

I'll bet the neighbors like that shower too! I've always wanted an outdoor shower, but I'd have all 4 sides of mine covered at least from the shoulders to the knees. And up there, it would have to have some very warm water attached!
