It's on like Donkey Kong!

I can't believe it! We've got 4 weeks to go till we move. I have soooo much to do! Life has been busy and I didn't get as much packing done as I wanted to up to this point but I still have time to get it together. It is time to hunker down and get serious.

I'm finally going to start on main floor and second floor stuff. My plan is to begin packing up decorative stuff, extra dishes, etc. At least I'm not feeling overwhelmed yet, just under a little pressure.

Oh my! March Break!

March Break came so early this year. It's definitely a week earlier than prior years, but will all the sick days and snow days we've had since Christmas Break I was shocked to see it come up when I flipped the calendar to March. I wasn't really prepared for it at all. 

My genius idea came to me when my 6 year old daughter asked me what we were going to do for her time off. I got her a pen and paper and let her start a list of things she would like to do as well as adding in my own suggestions. So far we've done a couple of things and the week is coming together. I'm getting tired though. Not used to having so many kids around all day. ;) What am I going to do all Summer?!?

Getting Everyone Excited

I can't wait for the move but the kids not so much. Our current home is all they've ever known. Because they are so young they don't totally get it either. So I'm trying to get them excited about our new place before we get there.

March Break started today so I'm planning a few things to do with the kids. We're going to go pick out paint colours for their rooms. We've got to get some packing done while they are home as well. My daughter has been thinking about her room and what she would like in it. I told her we could start a list and watch for stuff to go on sale after our move. I'm not 100% sure what all will fit in her room. Can't really decided till we get there.

Oh, something fun that I did today was print labels for the boxes. I'm already getting tired of looking at black marker so I'm adding some colour. I printed out a bunch with names of different people and rooms that have specific colours. Now I just have to stick the label on the box and add any other notes. It's fun. :)

7 weeks to go

Wow! March 1st today. The days are flying by and I'm not getting much done. :S It's not my fault. February was just so full of other things - card games with my friends once a week, a couple round of sickness, more snow for me to shovel, volunteer work to do. I'm not making excuses, just explaining my lack of accomplishment in the packing department.

But you know what? It's not that bad. This morning I was looking at what I got done downstairs so far and it is coming along quite nicely. A lot of stuff is sorted and just needs packing for moving. There are some items I need to make decisions on and I'll have to do that soon.

So, in 7 weeks, I hope I'm ready to go. LOL
