So much to do!!!! Time for a breather…

Well.

This whole moving thing is making me quite busy!  There is so much to do – but the good thing is that I don’t have too little time.  We’ll likely not move until June 1st…

That of course doesn’t make me want to get everything done right away.  I’ve already chosen and bought most of the paint, bought  a dresser, headboard (that I will torn into a shelf) and desk on Craigslist for $40, where I also scored 8 of these brand new chairs for $5 apiece (did I mention there are 4 patios?!!?!!!)!

I KNOW!

This is a very exciting time for our family.  Today we went over to  the house and Husband started prepping the walls for paint, not a stress-free experience.   Lots of ugly shelving, old and sticky shelving, painted-over unrepaired damage and inexplicable holes in the wall.   Thirty years of often-shoddy repair work means Husband was promising serious bodily harm to the unknown person or persons if their identity ever becomes known.

Me?   I started prepping the library – soon to be Son’s playroom – to be transformed from 70’s creep to kid-friendly chic:

Son amused himself while I worked, and afterward I let him jump into the pool with all his clothes on. We had fun.

It’s important to me that we enjoy this process as much as possible, and take breathers when needed.   There is still lots to do, and I’ll blog about some of the stuff I’m going through, some of the deals I find and some of the challenges we face.

Won’t this be fun?!!!!

Have you ever visited Solutions?  They’ve got some really cool stuff, perfect for that hard to buy person.

Right now you can save 20% on any one item. Apply coupon code SEP20 at checkout.

Two of the coolest things I found there:

Check out the Edge Brownie Pan. It’s made with specially patented interior sidewalls that gives two toasty edges for every serving. I personally like gooey edges, but I know many people who would love this!

For all the frugalistas out there who want to line dry their clothes but don’t want ugly and unsafe clotheslines in their yards, this clothesline retracts!  Very cool!

They are pricey, but if you had t o shop for MY Dad you’d be happy to find anything at all!
