Tackle it Tuesday--Moving

Tackle It Tuesday Meme


Well, it's almost the end of the summer. My kids are still little so I don't consider it to be the end of the summer till Labor Day and Sept hits. After all, it's still well over 100 degrees here and will continue to be for the next couple of weeks. We're still getting lots of swimming in. But I digress...

Moving wasn't a part of the plan for this summer. It certainly wasn't on my Summer To Do List, nor was it something that I thought would happen for awhile. But here it is. We're moving into a 3 bedroom house with a friend of ours. Little bit more space and new location. Thankfully it's not too far from here and we'll still be in the same town. So I'm not packing everything, but a few things do need to be put into boxes. And of course, the apartment must be cleaned.

So that's what I'm tackling today. I have a sitter coming in the morning to stay with the kids while I have a doctor's appointment. Then we'll do a little packing and hit the pool in the afternoon. Nothing like a cool dip to reward us for our efforts.

Our small group is also coming over tonight to help us pack up the last of it and clean things out. It's amazing the "filth" that we've been living in. You never realize how dirty your house is till you're moving out. Wow.

Anyways... wish me luck!

I think moving makes you realize what you live in and how much stuff you accumlate that you don't use! Good luck. Stop by my tackle which is similar to the mountain we climbed in Maine last week!

How exciting! I know what you mean about not realizing how bad things are until you move. I'm convinced I need to move at least once every year so my house gets deep cleaned and I can weed out all my clutter LOL!

My kids started school two weeks ago and it's over 100 here in AZ, so I know what you mean about heat! Good luck with your move and all that hot cleaning.
