Adventures on Craigslist

The last couple of weeks I've been trying my luck at Craigslist. My first quest to find moving boxes was a HUGE success, so now I'm on to selling things. My new place already has a washer and dryer, so I need to get rid of mine. I also need to get rid of my hardly used golf clubs (really, what was I thinking?!). Well, the washer and dryer will be picked up on Friday and the golf clubs hopefully will be too! I've found two buyers and I think I'll get pretty darn close to my asking price for both. It's a big relief - and believe me, I needed one.

Last week is a bit of a blur. On Tuesday, I got a call my mom that she was about to go into open heart surgery in Kentucky. Uggg. I hopped in the car within an hour and was there for a week - it was crazy! She's recovering nicely and is now home and being taken care of by my sister (bless her). It's definitely going to take her awhile to be back up and running on her own, but we're so glad everything's taken care of (she had a stint travel from her leg to her heart - very bizzare).

Needless to say, this little getaway has put a bit of a damper in the move and saying goodbye to friends. I actually missed a going away party for me last night - oops! I'm trying to see everyone in the next week, but it's going to be tough. I decided to break down and hire packers for the move, but I'd like to get as much of it done on my own as possible. It's going to be a busy week - but a fun one with lots of good things planned!
