Boy - trying to get ready to move is time-consuming (actually - all-consuming!)
Mike is flying out to Oregon on the 30th to find a house! Hopefully, if all goes well, he'll go ahead and sign a lease while there (we'll rent for a while - if we do love living on the coast, we'll consider buying at some point). If that does happen, he'll be able to give notice at his job right away and we'll plan to move mid-July or so.
Sorting through my boxes is almost done. We are having a garage sale this coming Saturday. I hope to get rid of a ton of stuff. (Almost literally!) If stuff doesn't sell, we'll be donating it, as I don't want to take it with us!
Once the garage sale is past, we will start packing up what we do plan to keep. Pshew!
I'll update as we know more ... wish for the best as Mike tries to find our house on the coast!
