Week 3/11-3/17

We haven't heard back on the home inspection of our current house yet. I'm hoping everything is fine as we tried hard to fix all the things we knew of, and we cleaned the gutters and that sort of thing that always comes up. I'm not too worried about it. The buyer said he'd pay us to have the hot tub all filled and balanced and all in a note they left after the inspection, so I'm sure its fine. Best part, we can use our hot tub again before we leave (as it costs about $50 to fill up for chemicals and needed a new filter... all of which the buyer said he'd pay for). :)

I've been compiling a list and stockpiling cleaning supplies to bust out the initial house cleaning on Monday when we get the keys. We closed Friday, but agreed to give them the weekend to finish clearing out the house no rent-backs.

Schedule for next week is as follows:

S - Wal*Mart trip to get last minute supplies and see if the layaway area will give me a bunch of boxes (they've been nice about this in the past). Workout.

M - Work @ downtown office until I get a call from Erik (our cutiepatootie realtor) to come get the keys :) Then clean up a storm. Jeremy will help when he gets off work. I'll probably watch Veronica Mars or the british Office DVDs (*note to self* Have Jeremy download US torrents of The Office up to date)

T - Take Max to vet for free check-up**!! Work from home about noon to 5:30. 6:30 Direct Buy orientation (we signed up *holy expensive* for their service, but we get everything at cost direct from manufacturers, and we'll make the membership fee back alone in kitchen and bath remodel savings, not to mention contractor discounts of 10-25%) 9:00 pm - Make cake and frosting for class, Workout

**OMG I didn't mention that the neighbors said we could take Max with us when we move! They were actually worried about him living out here as there's always racoons eating his food, even skunks! EEK! They said there was also a young coyote that was wandering around the field during the day across the street! AHH! Our street in the city is not trafficked much, so we think he'll be ok. I'm researching on the best way to acclimate him to his new home. We'll likely keep him in the huge basement (which has large windows, lots of light) for a week or two with a feline pheromone plug-in thing to calm him and I bought him a harness and extending leash to let him explore. Anyways, back to the vet check-up... he may need to be neutered. Hopefully he doesn't have any kitty afflictions as he's likely never been vaccinated as the neighbors said he was just a wandering neighborhood kitty they started to feed because he was really skinny and tame a few years ago when they moved in. They think he's about 4 years old or so.

W - 10 am meeting at work (downtown office), work til 6ish. Maybe clean at new house for a few hours. Return home to frost cake for class (allow 2 hours). Workout if I have time.

T - 12 pm special lunch downtown for work. Likely work from home part of day. 6 pm cake decorating class (3rd week of 4). Workout. Start going through bins in garage and packing into the POD we had delivered for storage for the next few months.

F - Work downtown, clean house more, or visit Direct Buy to order things we'll need in the next few weeks, or pack POD up more...

    I knew it! I knew Max was slowly moving in. I figured he was slowly working on wrapping you around his little paw. I’m glad to hear that you are taking him with you. He’s going to have such a nice life with you. I can’t wait to see all the pictures of what you’re working on in the new house. Best of luck to you during the move and I hope you love the new house. It’s adorable.
