In Limbo

I don't know where to start with anything. The new house won't be finished until January sometime....and I know I have to start cleaning etc. around here...but It will be all dirty by the time it comes time to sell the house.

The market is still hot so I don't anticipate a problem with selling, or getting the price we want...but when do I start?

I know I can do all the stuff that won't be touched until sale time like the rec room and 2& 3rd. bedrooms but I can't pack up all the stuff that's in them. I have no place to put it. We use these rooms mostly for storage. I'm not going to wash all the windows inside and out until it's almost time to sell because in fall they are full of cobwebs and will get dirty all over again. I.am.in.limbo.mon.

I don't want to have the carpets cleaned just yet because Penny Loafer is still shedding the last of her last winter's coat of f*cking fur. She is almost done. I don't want get the drapery cleaned because it will just be dusty by that time.
I.am.in.limbo.mon. sing it with me....

I am sitting on the cusp. And it's making a dent in my ass.

We have about 5 more people to contact for doing the innards of our house. Very scary. Tomorrow is Windows & Doors day. Well I don't have a clue. I cannot visualize. When I see something I will either love it or hate it. But how will I know what will look good in a house I can't even see. I have the plans...but they mean nothing to me. It's just a piece of paper.

Balonie...scratching her head.

I have no idea. I will remain in limbo with you. It is a good thing that the market is hot and that you will be able to see your house!

Don't you get a lot of snow in January? I would hate to move then, but...hey...what do I know? 'Nuttin, Honey.

Just stay in limbo--make some lists, as you say, it is too early to really clean now.

I would hate the idea of getting ready to put the house on the market and move!! We have been here for 35 years. Can you imagine how much stuff has accumulated??

Limbo sounds good.

UtooooH! Better decide on something Girl! Gord just might decide to jump in there with plans of his Own!!Hahaaa
If you have a storage area, start packing and labeling all the stuff you don't use! OR plan a yard sale and make some money off all that un-used stuff you don't want to carry to the new house, while it's still Warm!
Money's Always a good thing!
