Day 1 of moving

We moved part of our stuff to the storage unit today. Three truck loads in 90 degree weather...needless to say the boys were nasty and hot!

I have been cooking dinner every night except Thursday night... we went out to celebrate my passing the boards.

I have been keeping the house in really good shape. This is very exciting to have a nice house!!!
I still have so far to go though. I am trying to figure out how to organize our new house to make it clutter free. Any ideas?

FYI sold our kitchen table on craigslist for $40. We wouldn't have gotten $20 at a yard sale!

Great News

Just a little update:

I have been doing really great at the house keeping. I had to take a break on Fly Lady as we were at my mom's for the weekend,but I have been back at it and am now on day 10!

Here is the really great news. I took my nursing boards on Tuesday and found out today that... *drum roll* I passed!!! So that is very very exciting news.

I start my job Wednesday so check back to see about that!

Flying Day 7

Well, with this weekend of not being home, I am on day 7 of the Fly Lady's baby-steps. My house is more organized(no where near where it should be, but I am working on it,right?), I have more time as if there were ever enough time in a day, and my stress level is down! I love it!

Garage Sale update

We did really well at our garage sale this weekend! We made $192.50. Which is pretty good, not what I wanted, but it pays the bills,right?

After we shut the sale down, we still had 9 big boxes and 6 regular boxes of yard sale leftovers. I have posted them on craigslist, as recommended by a friend who does this every time she has a yard sale. Unfortunately, no calls so far, but hopefully by the morning!

Garage Sale














We kept a kiddie pool set up where we cold keep Kaden entertained and still sell a bunch!
We are having our internet shut off for a couple of weeks while we move(to save money)... I will be using my parents internet when I can, so keep checking back. When we get the internet back on I will be sure to update.

Semi-productive day

Today we did not get to do as much as I would like to have done! We went and looked at a house to rent/buy. We can get a loan because of poor credit, but we can rent this beautiful house while we improve our credit. It is a perfect match for us! So fingers crossed that we get it!!!

My parents are bringing their truck to help me get my yard sale stuff over there. I hope we make a ton of money because...we need it! I have over 15 Rubbermaid tubs and 20 boxes of stuff to sale so... I hope it works!

Not cooking dinner tonight. We will eat at mom's and David can have leftover BBQ chicken and potatoes and onions.

I made sure to clean the kitchen and living room before we left for the night.
