Coleen- I know what you are talking about. I have been in bed with a fever of 103 to 105 and yet, I still at least had to check in! I am better now and the first place I go even before email is AR! Katerina

Write if you find work. :~`)

 

I have been lurking around the edges of your blog as you prepare to move. It is an exciting time moving.

The last major move that I made ( somewhat similar to yours ) I went on property tour the day before the move.

Even better than that, I bought a vacant lot for cash while on the property tour. I still own that lot today some twenty years later.

Good luck with your move, I will look forward to your future posts.

Katerina,

I've dragged my laptop to bed with me as well!  Whenever I recover, I wonder how I go about sanitizing the keyboard. :)  Glad to hear you're feeling better. Thanks for stopping by!

 

Hi Ken - We are actually moving about a mile away from the rental home where we're living now. This will be our 3rd move in 18 months in Gainesville, Florida...which is about how long ago we moved here. Our home in PA took 18 months to sell....long convoluted story short, we're finally able to buy house #3....yes, we are the professional packers! :)  Glad you like the pic....it's a photo of the community where we live.  We love it here! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Herb - Thanks for stopping by. Thankfully since we are only moving a mile away from where we live now, we don't have to go thru the heartache and stress of finding new jobs. Have a great week! :D

A move is still a move, whether across the country or a mile away.  You will still have to pack and unpack and spend countless hours searching for where you put stuff!  I hope it goes smooth and you love, love, love your new home! Congrats!

That doesn't sound abnormal in my world.  I use to live on 34th st in Gainsvile and worked at what was then Paul West Ford.

Is THAT your new home???? If it is... it is beautiful. If it isn't.... too bad, LOL

I would be doing the same thing as you. I am also addicted and there is no cure. None, nothing, nada, zip zilch.

Just make sure your internet connection is up and running in the new place. And don't forget, your job title in this move is ..... stupervisor

Shelton - Go GATORS!! :)  Did you live in Gainesville a long time?  We've moved a lot, liked every place we've lived, but I tell you what, Gainesville has a very special magic to it and I am DEFINITELY not leaving here unless my husband gets an offer for $2 million and I get to be queen of a country.  Thanks for stopping by.

 

Andrea - No, it's not my house....in fact, that pic isn't anybody's house....it's one of the entrances to Haile Village.  SO pretty!  Our new home is lovely (as are the other 2 we've lived in for 6 months each), but nothing as grand as a fountain and pond in our front yard. If you're ever down this way I'd love to show you around! :)  Stupervisor, huh?  Well, I AM in a stupor for sure....have only been sleeping 3-4 hours a night....I'm sure it's not the least bit stress related.  Thanks for stopping by.

Coleen, I expect pictures of your new house, LOL. Demanding aren't I? That's because I have perfected stupervising to an art form. Try it, you will like it, LOL.

Take care, don't work toooooo hard, and make sure the first thing that is done in the new house is to connect to the internet!

Andrea - No better cure for stress than being pushed around by you. :)  I'll try to get some pics for you once we settle in.

Thanks for your good wishes....something tells me that over the next couple of weeks or so I'm really going to need them. xo

Hi Sheldon!

Thanks! It did! We're up to our ears in boxes again....but this move was much easier.....not nearly as hot in April as it is in August, thank God! Thanks for stopping by! :)

 

Hi Carra - You betcha!  Thanks for the good wishes.  Is that a feature cow?  If so, thanks! If not, he's cute anyway.  :)
