I bought a vacuum
The Hoover Nanolite aka my new friend.
I went to wal-mart this morning determined to get at least one thing I needed (i secured a kitchen trashcan at the dollar tree Friday) for the move. $50 dollars later I emerged with this blue and green beauty.
Yep, it's starting to sink in that we're actually going to be on our own!
(though I haven't seen Denise in a few weeks, she's been in Pasadena working and staying with her sister).
So far i've--
done the yard
shampooed the carpets (well the parts that don't have furniture on them still)
cleaned the bathroom (still have to scrub the tiles really good--you try getting engine grease out of grout)
moved most of our possessions down stairs in boxes
dusted...everything (fans included!)
cleaned the baseboards (again the ones that furniture isn't covering)
so yeah...i want to have to clean up as little as possible after the move.
Thursday morning we'll be moving! Excited!
Thursday is also Mom's birthday! Yes, I'll call ;)
So that's all I've got so far!
I still need:
*Washer & Dryer (have a 10% off coupon from lowes! but don't know what hook ups i have yet, just that it's a full size space)
*Coffee pot/electric kettle
*pots and pans? I know i have dishes in my storage but i don't remember is there is cooking wear in there!
*Food! I'm going to have to stock a pantry! (and it's a big one!)
*Spices! (this kind of goes in with food)
and various other things I know but I won't know what those are until i unpack my storage.
I also know I'll have some things to get rid of including (likely) two TVs and some clothes. One of my supervisors at work works with the local women's shelter so I'll probably unload much of it there.
I'll figure it out ;p
Okay--time to go to sleep!
Happy memorial day everyone!
