packing!!!

why, oh why do I have so.much.crap?! I thot I could do a major purge and I did give a bunch of scrap supplies away, but I wasn't able to part with much else. wow! lots of attachment!

ok, I did trash those dried out markers and the cassette tapes from my days of teaching aerobics. and I thot about purging my videos and my paper scraps (yes, I save all pieces! its a disease, I tell ya!), but what if I need that one piece of purple and I got rid of it???

I'm so excited, Pamela took me over to the condo today to measure for my new fridge and dryer. in the kitchen, there's a corner cabinet with one of those spinning rack thingys so you have more space to store stuff (pots and pans). there aren't very many drawers however, so I'm gonna have to figure something out for my cooking utensils!

thanks to Robby, the dubins and the cute girl baristas (ok, the guys too!) at the Starbuxs near the office for saving me boxes! thanks to Kris for coming over on Saturday to help pack the kitchen!

my cuticles are wracked and my back is talking to me, but I accomplished a lot this weekend. hopefully, I won't stress as moving day gets closer!!!

The Reveal

I snitched these pixs from the realty company's flier since I forgot to take my camera the last time I visited my condo! I get my keys in about 25 days! Not looking forward to purging, packing, and cleaning my current abode, but its a necessary evil I suppose. Out with the old, in with the new, whoohoo!!!

Still processing. Seems unbelievable! I now own my own piece of California.

Bedroom. Note the closet straight ahead to the left. That's for all my art/craft supplies.*

5 stairs to this room...At the landing on the left is the black & white floor tiled* washroom with the washer and dryer*, to the right is the bathroom.

Kitchen. Cherrywood*...yum! Travertine floor*. All new appliances (dishwasher!!!),
lighting, faucet.
Split sink* and garbage disposal*!!!


Living & Dining room, laminate flooring*, sliding glass door to the deck. That wall* ahead is the perfect spot for my flat screen tv. Ok, once I buy it! Later, maybe in a few years!!! LOL!

The walls are painted a light butterscotch, with crown molding*!


Garage* and a half!!! My Dad is already planning what he will store here! LOL!!!

There's also a pool and a spa, lots of trees, and lots of green. sigh : .)

(*Huge selling points for Linda, hee! : .)
