Weekending | News

So I posted Thursday, lamenting about changes, news, blah blah blah.  Then never came back.  Not even Friday for my favorite things.  I just decided to start fresh this week, and hopefully after having got caught up on some sleep, I can keep up a little better.

Only a little better though, because Sunday consisted of us watching Impractical Jokers most of the morning, and my reading.  Finally stumbling upstairs, after my second cup of coffee, to work on this little slice of internet heaven.

Saturday, however, things were full throttle.  We visited the Capital Forest Museum first thing, then stopped off at Walmart for some packing tape and a few other things.
A little sneak peak of the Shaker House at the museum... My original "weekending" post had a lot of pictures from the museum, so I decided to make its own post tomorrow.  
That afternoon, we started in cleaning up our guest rooms.  You may think this is because of my New Years Resolution.  Especially since I have sucked at them lately.  But it seems the universe decided to give me a little kick in the ass to get things going.


We found out a few days ago, that Scott has gotten a promotion!  He is the new Territory Manager for Orlando, and we will be relocating!  Now, Orlando is not one of my most favorite places- we lived in Kissimmee when we first moved to Florida when he was training for his job.  However, the territory extends east, all the way to the Space Coast.  The beach is one of my favorite places, so it'll be quite fun I think to be with in (a closer) driving distance.  Especially since we're approaching that time of year when it's too hot to do anything in Florida but sit on the beach / play in the water.

We're excited, and overwhelmed at the same time.  Hence the "woe-is-me" post on Thursday.  We've been taking it little-by-little, doing a lot of internet research.  Getting out house on the market and sold is the first step, so finding Realtors has also been up on the list.  As is cleaning the house and taking pictures for when we do actually get it listed.  One of my biggest pet peeves when looking at houses on Zillow etc, is all the crappy pictures.  We figure we need to make people want to drive this far out of town to see the house and property, and that ain't gonna happen with sucky pictures!

However, the cleaning/ picture taking is proving to be a slow process, especially when all I want to do is sit on my butt!  Unfortunately, what we did get done this weekend is the easiest of the easy.  So, more motivation is needed ASAP!

  1. Yay, congrats! So do you know how far away your new location will be from where you are now? Good luck with all that cleaning out and organizing and packing... that stuff isn't my favorite but unpacking in a new place will be fun!

    Congrats, that is so excited! I plan to put my house on the market this fall or winter, so I've been looking at some houses in different areas on Trulia and Zillow. I hate when there is only like one or two pictures on the listing. Good luck with everything!

  3. It'll be about 5 hours away- his office just outside of Orlando is about 3 hours away, and we'll be on the eastern side of that! I really hate packing and moving. but he's promised this time to hire movers for the majority of it. When we were going through things this weekend, I'd find something and would say "donate or craigs list?" and he'd reply "neither- we might need it." THIS IS STUFF THAT WE HAVE MOVED 3 TIMES ALREADY!!!!

  4. Yes! However, We were talking this weekend how over a week has passed already and it went in a blink of an eye, without us having accomplished ANYTHING!

  6. Thanks! That is true, and there are also a couple blog conferences in the area that I ran across! We are currently on day 5 of rain and dreariness, so I'm excited to get back to the sun, and where it only rains at 4pm for about 15 minutes then is done!

  7. Moving is always exciting and scary all at the same time!!! I send my best wishes on getting the house ready and finding the right realtor. It will all come together :) Such a great blogging community in Orlando too!

    re goring through it now :(

  10. Yes! SO overwhelming! Everyone keeps asking how I feel, and I'm just like... I'll be okay once I can sit on a beach with a drink in my hand and realize I can do that anytime I want!

  11. We have looked at so many houses online! The hardest part for us, is that we can live anywhere within this area! SO now I also have to do a job hunt simultaneously to see what kind of jobs are offered where!!
