Moving Funiture, Painting, Demolition, and Yard work! Yuck!

Seems like Progress...........

This weekend, we spend all our time on the back yard triming trees and also the demolition of our out door Gazebo. We installed it when we first moved in 13 years ago and it was a little on the old side with all the years of rain beating it up! We had to break it down.  The stager, (Jerri) will use the masonery stone pad that the Gazebo was sitting on will be used to display some out door patio furniture, on the day of our open house.

The carpet installer came to mesure the for carpet this morning. We plan on replacing the carpet for, all two master bedrooms, the family room, the hall and the stairs.
However, we still have 2 berooms to paint before the carpet comes - and then we can stage after the carpet is installed.

Our staging is going to be this weekend - if we can finish moving all the furniture out into storage and finish all the painting by then. Oherwise we will stage for the open house - for the weekend after next.

All our final room-mate will be moved out by that we can paint his masterbed room.  Yippee!

I also spent some time this weekend going thru some of my moms vintage jewerly and craft items...........and I have cried my eyes out the entire weekend!  It's really becoming very real now.  I also had to go thru my father's things.  I managed to give lot's of the items to my daughter (Stephanie) and my grand daughter's Tori and Ajah.  But it's has been a very emotional rollercoaster this weekene for me.  I still have quite a lot of there items I will be going thru the rest of the week as well as packing up all our personal items, pictures, candles, decor, mirros, dishes, rugs, towels, Pot and Pans, tupperware, All ,my mom's China cabinet pieces
utility closets and I will also have to pack up the Casita.

Our Casita is a small studio apartment with a full Kitchen and bath - it's about 600 square feet, and we used to use it as our entertainment room.

My Hubby and friends and my self are hugh Karaoke singers and movie buffs so set up our 70 inch wide screen T.V. in there and made it our little rec-room.  We also rented it out for a little while 2 years ago to one of our friends.  And it's where my daughter lived for a year - when she and hubby and grand kids moved from Las Vegas just recently.  Also when we first bought the house in 1996  and my mom passed away - I had my father living with us.  He passed away in the casita in 2003.

We have had so many birthday party's and baby showers, and pool parties, and reception's in this home.  So many wonderful times....

All those memories have flooded my mind all this week.  However, we must push on!

Thanks again to everyone - and all you comments.

I'll post again in the next few days.

My warmest hugs to all.  : )
