I've been talking about this for a bit, but I'm moving! I'm so excited that I just can't shut up about it. I'm heading to Michigan, land of sparkles. Last night I sent of the signed paperwork and deposit for my new digs. I've begun setting up all the little details that will make the move easier and that need advance notice, like handymen and the like. I'm going to have a lot to do to fix the place up. Let's just say my new home comes "as is".
I like the idea of working the new place into something that is all mine. My effort. My sweat. My hard earned dollars. Mine.
I'll have to post before and after pics, if I remember to. I was going to wait until the first week of November. Now, it looks like it might be a lot sooner than that. I have a conference to attend locally in the middle of October, but other than that, nothing is keeping me here. Maybe I'll move before the con and fly back. Hm. Not sure.
Basically, this weekend, I'm not only going to be writing my little fingers off, I'm also going to be packing. Woot!!! Did you know UPS will freight your belongings, packing them for you from door to door? Yep. Fortunately, I don't have a lot of excess shit and most of it will go in my car for the drive over.
Have you ever moved to a fixer upper? What are the most important things you learned and the things you wished someone had told you?
