Blogging Halt

I have discovered a sure fire way (do people actually say sure fire or do you have to be 65 to use that phrase) to bring your blogging to a screeching halt and that is by trying to get your home listed to sale during the holidays.  Screeeeech...........

I have been trying for the past two weeks to clean out closets and get rid of anything I don't want to move across the country.  It is also very important to clean out long forgotten drawers so that you don't recoil in shame as you realized the movers have packed some unmentionable you had forgotten about.  Yesterday I spent the morning weeding the flower bed and removing all traces of Halloween decoration.

Our first realtor arrived today and she promptly handed me a book containing her sales information.  And there on the cover was our home complete with Halloween decorations.  She had been here Thanksgiving day taking photos of the outside of our home.  Once again punctuality and preparedness has bitten me in the butt.  Why can't people be late and forgetful like myself?  I would at least have a nice cover shot of my home for the sales pamphlet!

I am so not jealous. You are in for quite a ride! I wish you strength and calm through it all!

I don't envy you. I hate moving. But once it's over, the sense of relief is wonderful. Plus, you've already purged yourself of all the riff raff.
I'm sure the picture for the brochure is fabulous.

Maybe some Halloween lover will be attracted to your home by the decorations. It would reel Kira right in. But that does seem like a long time to wait to take down Halloween stuff.

I was so hoping for a picture of "your drawer" instead of that newton crap. that's nothing. i am sure Jason could do a whole post on what he found of my unmentionables.
But good luck, We will be waiting for you on this side.
