This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

Packing, Packing, Packing...

Hello all you wonderful friends out there...just to let you all know, I am up to my belly button with boxes and have begun our packing mission...(no house purchased in Cali yet....but we have faith...)

It is very weird packing just to pack, in order to be READY.  My goals are:

To de-clutter and make for an nicer, more successful showing of our home.
To get my girlfriend to come and "stage" our home for a better showing.
To give myself time to organize what goes in the boxes so I can find it once we move...
To get a jump on the packing, "just in case" our home sells fast..so we will be that further ahead and more organized for the big move.

I still need to call some of the Moving Companies and get estimates.
I have made a list of all the utilities to call to cancel or postpone.
I have been putting things aside for donations, one is coming this Thursday.
I am working with two Realtors from California..
I may have to get another Realtor here in Nevada, because the one I thought I would use, is not returning my calls...(which is NOT a good sign).
I am checking the MLS listings every day and still, despite wanting to be in a nicer area, Hemet and Cherry Valley seem to be our only options...

More later...

It's good to get a head-start on the packing -- what a big job that is! But a wonderful opportunity to let go of clutter and STUFF!

Not so much fun, this packing, moving process! You will be in my thoughts.
The last time I we moved was 24 years ago! Can you imagine how much I would have to de-clutter?!!

Moving is sooo not fun, but a great way to get your stuff organized. Doing it ahead and taking your time is a very good idea. It will make things much easier on the other end. I say this from much experience as a mover. I hope your house has a quick sell.

You sound a lot like me, trying to be ahead of the game. As soon as I knew I was going to move I was packing it up. It sure makes it a lot easier when the big move comes. On the news a day or so ago, they were saying that our are area of Real Estate was going to improve and property vaules would be going back up. So I am hoping that things will work out for you. Good luck.
