Whew! What a Whirlwind!

Wondering where I've been? Well, it's not been in Michigan for the last 5 days...we drove out to Maryland last Tuesday with two doped-up cats, one fully-packed truck, two bikes on the bike carrier, and a lot of hopes for an easy transition.

Before heading out, we were packing a Pod, having the carpets cleaned, a room painted, closet doors hung, packing last minute items, and doing a ton of last minute errands.

This was a life-saver:

The snow melted by packing day, but just as we got going, it started up again:

Needed to shovel a path at this point - it's about 6:30 a.m.

I think we even shoved a few more things in here after this pic was taken...

And this is the stuff that didn't need to be in the house to show it - mostly personal items, clutter, and a lot of my 'junk' ;) It's important to show a house like a model home - something that looks like a buyer could move their stuff in and live in it right away.

We were packing right up until noon on Tuesday and we had to get on the I didn't have time to take the staged pictures - SORRY!! I'll have them when I head back home...soon...and I may even have some news to share with you!

Keep your fingers crossed that my house sells and we can find one in Maryland quickly!


  1. How exciting! Best of luck selling your old home and finding a new one that you can make YOUR home!

  2. Fingers crossed...I would need 2 pods to shove the stuff in that didn't need to be in the house to show it! But, you know how I feel about Pods...

  3. Wow, you've been busy. Good luck on the move! Here's to sell the old house and finding your new home.


  4. It is an experience you won't soon forget, trust me. Like I said, I don't like moving. But it sounds like you are doing well. Good luck! Can't wait to see you all settled.

  5. How exciting Jill! Good luck with your move and hope you sell fast!


Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts! I appreciate each and every one of you!
