The Listing is online here.
Dave has spent the last two days clearing out the garage and tool shed, making it Christmas for his friends. He is even giving away the firewood that we have accumulated from fallen or cut down trees. His pals are thrilled to get all the goodies that he collected "in case we ever might need them" saying, "this was such a deal".
He loves a deal. We are so alike.
I took four large bags of stuff to Goodwill, and have more to go. I did find a box full of my quilt patterns, which a few folks have asked for over the years. I will make them available here on the blog in the coming days, when the move is over.
It's pretty darn cold here, for Tennessee. We got about an inch of snow. I'm glad I have no place I must go today.
With the move impending I am working on setting up electric, water, trash pick up, and internet/tv service. We will not have a landline, for the first time ever. I guess we're catching up with the rest of the world, finally.
The move-in will be incremental, since we want to stage this house to make it look move-in ready. And we want new stuff (Hello IKEA), like counter stools, and new beds and mattresses. The real challenge will be to take both dogs to the new place. I do have some knock-out pills for them and we hope that makes it easier to travel the 45 minutes it will take to get there. We have one big crate for the Chumster, and Tony will be a good boy and sit on the lap of the passenger.
Since Dave gave away so much stuff to his friends (with trucks!), he also bargained on their help to move us. We still have all the plastic bins and Rubbermaids from our move down here. They will be reused, and many things don't even have to be packed as they are already in bins.
