Staging

We really need to put our house on the market.

This means staging our house.  Which means moving things to a storage unit, purging, and consolidating.

I actually sort of enjoy getting rid of stuff, so I know I can do it.  I am just not sure I can do it with a toddler underfoot.  It is usually all I can do to keep the house clean and put food on the table.  And every time I put something in the giveaway pile, child finds it and does not want to let it go.  So I have to do all purging on the sly.  That makes it much more difficult.

I am thinking I may make use of our day care provider, and use my parents over the weekend, too.  Hopefully it will be better than I think, but I doubt it.

So far I have made lists of things that need to get done for each room.  I have also made a trip to goodwill and started another goodwill pile.  This week is just too busy get much done.  I am hoping that next week will be better.

Also does not help that I am sick.  Again.  Just enough to make me feel a little under the weather.  I was hoping that I would be over this once the weather started getting warmer.  I am going to slog through anyway, and pretend I am not really sick.  I just do not want to be sick any more

I also signed up for another 5K.  I wanted to run something around my birthday, so I signed up for the Blossom to Bottle 5K.  It takes place at a local winery and orchard, and it looks like it will be a beautiful setting.  And I can bring wine home from the race!  Who does not like that?

    We’re contemplating the same thing. With the negative that I am the pack rat of the house which makes it 10x harder if I’m the one going through everything.

    Hope the sick passes quickly for you.

    My solution for the toddler-reclaim…I keep boxes in the trunk of our van. I immediately take things and put them there so A doesn’t see things and take them back.

    Feel better.
