This week

I'm apologizing ahead of time, I'm afraid my posts this week will be rather uneventful.  Any free moment will be spent packing and any mental free moment will be spent trying to coordinate Saturday's Big Move.  Ok, so maybe a few free moments will be spent thinking about a new cat.  Daisy needs a sibling and my thought process is that if we get a new cat as close to move-day as possible than we won't be putting Daisy through 2 major transitions, just one...  That's my hope at least.  Pending any issues, we hope to adopt this 'little' guy currently named Elf.

I am pleased to say I had an extremely productive weekend house-wise.  My wonderful parents and sister pitched it quite a bit of time yesterday to help Hubby and I get set for the Big Move.  Carpets got shampooed (major stains are GONE!), kitchen cabinets are on their way to being filled, the closet door now latches.  We have a dishwasher and new faucet ordered and a countertop extension (for above said dishwasher) in production to be installed tentatively on the 22nd.  I think I just need to start a tab at one of the home improvement stores.

One silly thing that makes me giddier than it should is the master closet.  By ripping down some old trim and shelving (and having some plaster fall out of the wall in the process) I was able to add a closet organizing system and effectively triple the space.  I'm still waiting on 1 part that my sister is donating to me (an unused piece from her own closet).  Once I start getting clothes in and all the pieces together, I'll share some before and after pictures.

This week will consist of a lot of packing the remaining items and trying not to get stressed out too badly.  I will say, today has been a very good start to the week.  If the rest of the week can remain at this level, I'll be a very happy camper.
