Yipee!!

Late yesterday afternoon, a young couple put a contract on our house!! SO pleased. They kinda remind us of us when we first bought this house... so young and excited.. there is a catch though...

They need to move in ASAP... so the contract is a 30 day contract. In 30 days we move out.... "What's the problem?" I hear you say...
Well the problem is that the settlement date on our new house isn't until 19 December, you see there are tenants living there & their lease doesn't run out until then. Now we are hoping that the tenants will agree to leave early, but they dont have to. Otherwise we will be homeless for a few weeks. *gulp* That should be fun (and expensive!)

But the house has sold so we are very pleased! Now I need to start packing.... a month isn't long!! Where to even begin!!??

Oh, why is it never easy? I hope you don't end up homeless, and that the cleaning and packing go quickly and painlessly.

So great that you've got a contract, though!

Gratulations...it is a nice feeling when you selll...
We just sold ours, however, we do have the option to rent until we find something else to buy.
Happy packing and see you Saturday

Books. ALWAYS start with the books. They're easy to pack and they get you started.

Also... YAY!! ((congratulatory hugs))

Well done! I'd start by packing away toys. Let the kids keep out some that they have to have and pack away the rest. This serves three useful purposes; 1. you won't be constantly tripping over toys while you try to pack everything else 2. Fewer toys = less mess 3. How excited will the kids be when they finally get to unpack all their things?

Good idea with the toys!

I sure don't envy you. It is such a stressful time - but such exciting news!!!! And now you'll be so close!

Aaah! Wow. Maybe you'll qualify for all sorts of Centrelink homeless benefits for a few weeks... milk it for all it's worth!

(No, that's not really my advice. I hope it works out.)
