after today, that is. Tomorrow night, just before we go to bed, DH will
be disconnecting both computers and packing everything up in preparation
for the movers early Friday morning....yikes!!!!!!!
It seems like, for a while, we had all this time to get things done, and
now it's here and I'm totally stressed out. I think I have a pretty
good handle on things, but have a list of what to do tomorrow and what
to do on Saturday after everything has been boxed up (which is what they
will be oding on Friday). As part of my separation from this house -
the first one we bought together, and the one that we moved into when
DS, now 5 years old, was only 1 month old - I will be back over here
Saturday to do the scrubbing and sweeping. Yep, me...cleaning...lol.
The current plan is to have the movers put the kitchen/dining room boxes
in the living room (I will be labeling them as to where they actually
go) so that I can sweep and scrub the floors. I am also planning on
getting the countertops, cabinets, possibly the entire fridge (inside
and out), then onto the bathrooms. They are actually pretty easy, so
I'm not stressing about that...in fact, my favorite thing to do when I
was younger was to thoroughly scrub the bathroom from top to bottom
(yeah, I'm a sick, sick person...<grin>).
Of course, some of you are probably wondering where the children and DH
will be during this time.....I'm making them stay away from me. Told DH
that he needs to spend time with the children without me as a
distraction, to help the oldest not stress over the move, and because
the youngest doesn't get a lot of time with him under normal
circumstances. The hotel we will be at has a pool, and both children
love being in water with their floats (DD has a little sit-in float, DS
has water wings and doesn't really come of the steps). ALso said that
he would have the minivan, so if he had to get out of the hotel room, he
had the right car to tkae both children in (his car only has a booster
seat for DS).
Today, the only thing I have to do is iron the clothes that he wants in
case our household goods don't arrive before he has to start work. At
6pm, we have to meet with our attorney in NY to sign papers for the sale
of our house and then we are pretty much done with it.
Tomorrow, I will be taking the furniture locks off the childrens
dressers and bookshelves and steam cleaning the furniture as well as
doing the last load(s) of laundry. Oh yeah, and taking DS to his last
night of karate <sigh> - we are already set up with a new school in VA.
Friday, DD goes to a friends house so she won't get stepped on by the
movers. DS will be going to his last day of summer school. The current
plan is that DH or I will be vacuuming around boxes (probably DH as I
will be making sure to label all boxes).
So...yeah, I'm actually busy, but I'm more stressed about not being able
to chat with all of you - unless I get to al ibrary and go through Google.
I wil try to give one last post tomorrow before we are disconnected.
Larisa, getting a little depressed now
