    I haven't been on here much lately. That's because I was in another state trying to find a job. I wanted to move to be closer to my Dad (my Mom died a year and a half ago) and was very worried about moving in this economy.

    Well, to make a long story short, I got the job -- I'll be teaching 4th grade in North Carolina. It is in a brand new building, and I have a wall mounted SmartBoard. I'm very excited --[ but now I must pack up and move very quickly. I'm a little overwhelmed with everything I need to do. I just finished boxing up 4 boxes of "kitchen stuff." Now I'm taking a little break.

    Send some positive energy my way so I can get all this packing done.

    -Rain

    I was just thinking about you last night!! I was thinking about PMing you to see how things were going. Congrats on the new job and the move!!! Will you be staying with your dad, or finding a place of your own? And are you going to try to sell your house in VA?

    Welcome back! We've missed you!

    I'm going to stay at my Dad's until my house sells. He has plenty of room. Then I will look around for a house to buy once my house sells.

    I've lived in this house for 20 years -- egawds do I have a lot of junk. I'm going to be getting rid of a lot of things. It is very stressful to try to get rid of things you've had for over 20 years -- but I know, in the end, it will be worth the effort.

    Can you have a packing party? Order some pizza and have some friends over?

    Good luck and congrats on the new job

    Congratulations on the new job and new start! I can certainly relate to the amount of stuff you accumulate over the course of 20 years--the thought of packing up this house to move would be terrifying! Best of luck!

    Do you know about burying St. Joseph by the front door of the house you want to sell?

    Someone told me about that, and she is getting me one.

    There are a total of 7 houses for sale on my street, so it looks like I'll need some "extra help." :)

    A friend came over today to help me do some packing. We got 11 large boxes packed. Now I'm a bit worn out, so we will do more tomorrow.

    What good news. It is very good of you to move closer to your Dad. I think you will be happy you made that choice.

    Wow. Yes, with 7 houses for sale, I'd take any help I could get!! http://www.bankrate.com/brm/news/real-estate/20040831a1.asp

    Will your house be empty when potential buyers are looking at it? Have you considered having some furniture in it? Not that you want to spend any more money than you have to, but some people 'stage' houses that are for sale...also don't underestimate 'curb appeal': new paint on the front door, keep the lawn mowed.. (I've moved at least 12 times, have owned 3 homes...)

    Good luck with this new adventure in your life!!:hugs:

    Thanks for all the advice and well-wishes. I'm very excited about my new job. Packing is no fun, but a friend came over and helped which made it a lot less tedious.
