    Would this still let them open? The two upstairs lead out to a deck. The one downstairs is in the master bedroom and I wouldn't be worried about it opening or not.

    I'm starting to keep track of everything. It doesn't help that the people who lived there before uncle in-law had a destructive kid. When they moved he took it out on the house. As far as I can tell the biggest issue is the sliding doors. They were put in backwards. So the spot you'd normally put a safety bar is on the outside of the house. And all 3 bedrooms have them. The rest is little stuff. Or nothing super pressing I suppose.

    Today: - Pack - Clean - Hold on to what little bit of sanity I have left. - Pack some more. - Move things to house - Unpack at house? ETA: Found a dead, what I think was, a dead stink bug in the upstairs bathroom. Hoping not to find more. I don't think I'll use that bathroom unless necessary. It probably needs a whole remodel upon inspection. The whole house has things to fix and I'm very frustrated about it.

    12. They were 2 models of the same type of thing but I did finished them all in one day. There may have been more some day during Minivember but I can't recall currently.

    Also, my paper boat made it without damage! We did however have a couple of casualties as far as furniture goes. The legs on my vainity totally broke off. Which was really upsetting because it was from Husband's uncle as a wedding gift. FIL is determined to fix it and he's always done woodworking so I'm semi- confident that it's possible. The kitchen island top poppes off but it was just a matter of tightening some screw holder things, I've no idea what they're called. So that's fixed. Now to finish moving and packing the small stuff and clean. We're in the home stretch now and I'm both nervous and excited.

    Was worried about not getting our deposit back but because we've been here so long they are required to replace carpet and paint so we won't be charged for that.

    Almost all the furniture is out. The last two things that aren't lamps or our game tower are DVD cabinets. We have plenty of space for movies and games built into the house already. I'm wiped. But we're down to only about 10% to pack and move! Then cleaning.

    I am up too early. This has made me very grumpy. My mom came by the drop off more boxes. She said I looked tired my reaction was "No broccoli." I definitely didn't want to be up. Husband just left to go get some things for the house and apartment (this is getting confusing). Still have 15%-20% of the apartment left to pack and 5-6 days depending on how you look at it. In other news, in the desperate attempt to get some stuff unpacked for boxes I unpacked a box or two of craft/hobby/art stuff. It's, the hobby room at least, is starting to look like a facsimile of a home. I'll try to snag some photos while we're there today.

    I do prep them in advance but probably not well in advance. Depending on the project will determine how far out I prep them. I didn't know this was a thing but I don't expect to have the hobby area up and running by then.
  13. Got my journal in the mail today. I ordered a second one but it ended up being very...preachy and that's not my jam. This wasn't listed anywhere when I ordered it.

    Good to know, will probably have a drink or something with dinner. Not sure what all is left to do today.

    Can't get quote box to go away. So much to do in 6 days, we've shuffled all the misc. stuff to the dining room and some in the kitchen. Still need to pack the entirety of the those, most of the bathroom, and stuff in the balcony storage. Aaaaaaaa. Gonna have to rent a van this week that we really don't have the money for to get the last of the big furniture out and hopefully a ton of boxes. It's like 75 inside and not much cooler outside either. I'm drenched in sweat and have to do a ton of stuff today. We didn't make it to the house last night like we'd planned on. Did however make 2 trips out there during the day. I need some restful sleep, a drink, and some more sanity. Not necessarily in that order. <Purple> It's 11 am, that's perfectly acceptable time to have a drink right? </Purple>
