Getting ready for moving day

As I mentioned here earlier, our house in under contract and we are moving back into our condo.  Needless to say, downsizing your space by half takes some thinking, followed by moving, selling, storing, and giving away.  It has been a very busy week.

It was made a lot simpler with the help of Julie's mom Joan.  She flew out about a week ago, knowing that she wasn't really here for fun.  More like slave labor.  It is very impressive to watch this 80 year old lady go back and forth between houses, hundreds of times, up and down stairs, all while carrying boxes.  Glad she enjoys that type of work.  It gave Julie a lot more time to prune, pack and decide.
She left yesterday, and the timing was just about perfect.  We are now at a phase where there are lots of little decisions to be made, but not much packing or moving.

The first big day is Monday.  The movers come and get all the furniture over to the condo.  Monday night we will start staying in our new, but old, abode.  The next big day is the following Monday, when we actually close on the deal.

Busy, busy, busy.
