Marti's Musings: The list is getting shorter!

After the wonderful break last weekend, we have been able to knock more items off the 'to do' list.  Our kitchen floor has been installed - worth the wait - it looks great! 

Unfortunately, Paul's camera case is still, umm, well - missing...  in it is his battery charger. (we think the case got sent to the RV)  He purchased a universal battery charger - yeah, right.  Don't believe everything they tell you... now the camera doesn't recognize the battery.  *sigh*  My lap top memory is nearly done, so I can't load pics from mine til I figure out how to free up some memory.  (read: transfer the pictures to a thumb drive or similar).  So, pictures may be few and far between for a while.

Living in this semi-moving state is already getting old.  We had fresh corn on the cob for dinner (yum!) and when Paul went to get the ear holder-thingies - well, they are - umm, well packed and in the RV.  Along with the grilling spatula that we replaced last week.  Wonder what else we will find 'missing' in this state of limbo we are in?

Ah, but I digress.  Also crossed off the 'to do' list:  removed the large entertainment center, replaced by a smaller, and matching TV stand.  That serves 2 purposes - the wood matches the fireplace mantel and the plantation blinds on the window, and makes the room appear larger.  A few more paint touch-ups have been done.  Our CD's have been sorted and moved from the stack of cases to the zippered holder, which is a huge space saver for the RV. 

Saturday we will have our walk through with the realtor, so we hope all the final little things will be done, so the house will look 'staged'.  There will be a some final sorting, runs to storage (and now probably to the RV) - and then we will know more after meeting with them.  Tomorrow night and Saturday morning will be crazy busy as our meeting is set for 1pm.

Wish us luck - that light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter!!  We'll keep you posted!     ~Marti

  2. Woohoo! Breathing gets easier, too, right? Have you ever thought of uploading your pictures to SmugMug or some such? I really like smugmug..it's very affordable, easy to use. I upload, then delete the pictures off my laptop, making a lot more space :)

  3. All the work you have done will pay off, the house will probably sell in two days and that will change the rush from getting ready to getting out.....lol.

  7. Backing up pictures and computer storage space is a several times a week task for me. My main backups are two one terabyte portable hard drives. Since I am a bit paranoid about losing everything, I also keep a portable hard drive in the car-just in case. Finally, once every four months or so, I put picture and video files on DVD's.

    When we returned to check on our storage unit once a year, I put an up to date drive in there.

    Yes, I know- a bit obsessive :(

  12. I agree with getting an external hard drive to put your important things on.

  13. I sure can sympathize with the frustration of never being able to find things you know you have. I have that problem in the RV and I don't even have 3 separate locations where things are at the moment.

    I know you realize "this too will pass" but I also know you sure wish it would hurry up.

    I'm thinking quick sale, quick sale...
