This month is slipping away!

I'm both grateful and horrified at that! At the end of the month we will be packed up and whisked half way across the country. In the mean time we have to continue to live and keep on schedules created for Miles, take advantage of the time we have left with friends here, plan our move, coordinate the move, and prep our rented home for returning it to the management company. We are pretty sure that they are going to do what they can to keep the deposit. Anyway, that is another post all together! Right now I want to focus my thoughts about things to be done this month. Specifically things to prep the house so that there is as little as possible for Jared and his father to do before setting out on their drive.

I'm working up a to do list by room but the general starting point for each room is as follows:
Remove Art
Patch Walls
Paint Patches
Move Furniture to center
Wash Windows
Scrub Baseboards
Scrub window Sill
Vacuum floors/corners
Polish Floors
Remove Blinds
Wash Blinds
Replace blinds
Second coat Spackle
Second coat paint
This will be difficult to do in the office, but everywhere else I can manage on my own more or less. This will leave very little overall to be done while the movers are here or after they leave. There are 6 main rooms and I hope to hit at least 3 this week and complete their checklists.
