With the upcoming sale of our home...yes, we're moving and must sell our home, I've been stressing over decluttering and cleaning for weeks now.  It took months to interview several realtors until we found one we thought could sell our home the best.  It took months to complete repairs on the house and yard.  My daughter's room is not longer pink and tomorrow my son's room will no longer be blue.  We're getting stuff out of the house and buying things to stage the house.  Needless to say, keeping this house clean will be a challenge with two little toddlers running around the house but not as horrible as I thought since most of our stuff is out of the house.  Everything will have its own place.

Today, after all this stress (and Ryan can verify), I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Most of the major projects are done, its just the little things to finish up.  But I see the end in sight.  Once I find a routine for getting the kids and home ready for a showing, I think I'll start really relaxing.  I have my knitting projects ready to go and movies on the DVR. 

I completely understand how my friend Robin felt getting her family ready to move to Egypt.  They could only stay a few months before evacuating but enjoyed every minute of it, something I'm sure all the headaches made well worth it. 

So I'll leave you with a cute photo of the kids.  They always brighten my day.

Moving is always stressful but when you add selling a house into that equation, that changes everything! I'm sure you guys will have no problem selling or at least renting. I heard that the housing market is supposed to be on the upswing. Are you putting your furniture in storage and bringing in new stuff for staging? Do you have to buy new furniture for staging? I'm so clueless when it comes to buying and selling a house!
