Matt got the job!!! He was told that a formal offer will be coming early next week. Whoo hoo!! Oh you have no idea how good this is, I am so thrilled! AND, yes there is an and, he went by an apartment complex that we had been checking out online and they have a 4 bedroom apartment opening up in two weeks, what perfect timing!
Sorry for all the exclamations but it's an exciting day!!!!
Thanks so much for the prayers, good thoughts, crossed fingers and even the chicken bones (Traci, you rock!), love you all!
Working on my list and doing fairly well so far. Heather, we load up the truck on September 13 and leave town the next morning. Should be in Reno on Friday the 15th :)

Ooops, got off topic before I even started this time, easy to do for me though. Okay, deep breath. Concentrate. Yeah, that's my problem in a nutshell right now. So many things on my mind, those mental to-do lists are taking over my brain and getting all muddled together.
Done - took the papers to a notary public, told my realtor which one to send the rest of the info to, started packing and keeping a list of how many boxes of what I have, found homes for all the outside toys & swing set, went through deep freeze and threw out a bunch of stuff.
To do - tell school board we are moving and get school transcripts for kids, tell doctor and get medical records for everyone, book a moving truck, find help loading said truck, get the freakin' lockbox off my front door (realtor has to do that), tell storage fellow that I will be vacating the unit so he can rent it out to someone else, call all utility companies with cutoff date, find someone to take over the contract on our cell phones so that we don't have to keep paying for another year or pay the ridiculous penalties for cutting out early, get some newspaper (no ink) for wrapping dishes & breakables, find home for freezer. And of course, pack & clean and such.
Hmmm, now that it's written down it doesn't look as overwhelming. I can do this!

Most of my brain has been consumed with the house lately. The home inspection is the one subject to clear and that takes place tomorrow at 1pm. I've been going over and over in my head what might happen, but I really have no clue. I mean, as far as *I* know, there is nothing major wrong with the place. Yes, there are cosmetic things to do, but that's not part of the inspection. And the back door needs to be replaced, we've never used it because it's falling apart inside, plus there's no porch back there, hasn't been since before I moved in here 10 years ago. But my overactive imagination is worried about termites and rot and mildew and plumbing falling apart, etc... On a positive note, I did meet the potential buyer today, she stopped by to "just look at the outside" and I of course invited her to come in as long as she promised not to notice my dishes and unvacuumed carpet. She was very very nice and just loved the place :) so that made me feel somewhat better.
Now to get through tomorrow, get the sold sticker put on the sign and get Matt a job. Easy peasy!

We're listed! I'd link you to the MLS entry, but it's not up yet. And do you really need to see pics of my messy home? Naaah! Enough for you to see my three girlies and to know that I do indeed have a "low maintenance yard" as the realtor described it. Hey, we're on water restrictions here, it's not my fault my lawn is brown and brittle!
In sorta related news, Matt's interview today went well (again, he's good at interviews) and they told him they would be making a decision by next Wednesday. Are you praying? I am!

So, to "my" moms, I'll see you in a few days. I will try to post on the board while I'm gone (if they find it again). Failing that, I will try to blog. And if I can't get internet access, in other words if there's no room for computers among the granola and tofu, I'll miss you even more. If you're going to the bbq, have a wonderful time and hug each other for me. If you're missing it this year, hug yourself and have a super weekend anyway!
See you later, alligator!
