Sell, sell, sell!

We sold all of Espen's furniture on craigslist this weekend...all but his little couch which should have a home by the end of the week. We are holding our yard sale this weekend. I hope we can get rid of EVERYTHING over the weekend. My goal is to only bring one box of items to the condo. Well, one box that does not have to be unpacked. We won't have room to store anything, so we NEED to clean house this weekend. Only 4 more weeks here, I still can't believe it.

Wait a minute, strike that, reverse it...

My boss hired me back full time today...for now. Thank heavens! Love the job, love the hours, love me some money. This is definitely a fantastic turn of events. Lets hope it keeps up.


On Saturday my boss informed me that he no longer has enough business to keep me on as a full time employee, I now have 2 weeks, while working just 2 days a week to pound the pavement and find yet another job. This is unreal. My brain feels like it shuts off every time I open my already lengthy novella that is my resume. It shows that I have a ton of experience in all sorts of fields (within real estate) but every time I have to add something to it, I begin to feel more like a failure. I know it's not true because if you look back I either left on my own or had to leave because of others I will press on.

We still have not settled on a moving date. There are several things we need to straighten out first, obviously a job for me, but a few other items as well. I can't wait for the yard sale! I just want it all gone so we can start fresh in our tiny new home.

Considerable Downsizing

As you all know, the economy has taken it's toll on just about everyone one way or the other. For us, it's been quite a rough ride, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. And although we will be 'losing' our home of six years, we have the opportunity to keep a roof over our heads, albeit the roof is only 600 square feet. We are diving head first into 'small space living' with a 2 year old in tow...and we are going to make the best of it!
Now comes the daunting task of cleaning house, de-junking, yard saleing and testing our skills at savvy space saving design. Between now and December, we have our work cut out for us.
Wish us luck!
