It's been a while

Not much to report on the new house front. There's one house on our street that is already framed, and it looks like framing will start soon on the house 2 doors down from us. They also finally have the lot signs posted, but it was dark and I couldn't get a good shot. Our pre-con meeting is October 5th, I can't wait.

We're still trying to pack our current house and we're getting down to crunch time. I ended up getting 3 mobile storage units (plus we already have one). It's a little more expensive, but I just think the convenience is definitely worth it. Dan spent the day cleaning the garage out, we were both shocked at how much junk we had in there. It didn't look like a lot since everything was around the perimeter and the car fits fine, but the garbage men are going to hate us this week. I'm just really glad that I'll have a separate storage area in the new house for all of my work stuff (I have an event planning biz so lots of random supplies to store). We've sold some furniture, but still have a few larger pieces to sell. We still don't have a closing date, but the estimated date is "by the end of September."

We need to start making a list of everything we need to buy, refrigerator, washer, dryer, light fixtures, etc and the projects we want to do immediately. I've read about people painting the garage and sealing the floor, but I don't know if we'll be able to do that in January with the temperature. I know there are some organizational projects I want to do too before we put anything away (kitchen, closets, garage, basement).
