I hate moving. Even before it starts since we haven't looked at new houses nor put ours on the market yet. But putting it on the market is a pain. Because it has to be "shown." It ceases to be a place where we live and becomes a showplace. I thought I was seeing light at the end of the painting/fixing tunnel until we had the realtor over -- he went around making suggestions for how it would "show" better.
He was right, of course. I've got enough marketing background in my past employments to know he was right. We need to declutter it and to open up the rooms. Which means we need a storage facility to put furniture and boxes of knickknacks, books, and crap.
And the new deadline is next week.
So I doubt you will be hearing from me much before Mid-November. Be thankful. Most of the time these days, all I do is swear.
