Packing is dull

Exactly one week until we get to move into our new-to-us house. We already own it, but have rented it back to the sellers to give them extra time to move.

I should be panicking about packing, but mostly I’m just really, really sick of it. And I’m running out of places to put the boxes I do pack, which is hardly motivational.

We met the person who is taking over the top half of the place we’ve been renting; she has ducks and chickens. She seemed very nice, but surprised by the lack of wood floors – the place was advertised as all wood floors, while in fact there are wood floors in one room and the rest is carpeted. She is paying for the main floor and attic what we paid for the whole house last year. Yeesh, I am so glad to go back to owning.

Packing for the move

Mostly just packing like crazy and working on finalizing our financing. Takes a lot of concentration to keep track of everything you need to, and doing it while you are packing is a little mad because twice I’ve packed papers we need to complete our financing, heh.

If you are waiting for an email from me, I’m having some difficulties with my mail client right now, and answering things on the iPhone is tedious at best. I’m trying to get to things from my webmail, but it’s much slower for me. I’m hoping to take a second or two this weekend and straighten out whatever is not letting me send from my mail client (probably a blocked port is my guess, but who knows).

Picture above is our new office. The upstairs has some beautiful old growth Douglas Fir – the first owner did wood working and added a lot of nice features to the house. It’s not paneling, it is doug fir planks. Neat-o. Our inspector showed Brian how old it was by how tight the line are in it.
