in a box.


I need boxes. Free boxes. And I'm working the Craig list circuit, but so far have fallen upon a no response and a second place miss.

And knowing that a realtor is coming.... today, and the house is a mess. Okay, it's tidy, but not truly clean...freaks me out. And I have no time to clean. The refrigerator, floors, closets, my room, MY ROOM, garage....it all.

And I need to stuff boxes with all the things we don't use and don't need and get them out so at least it feels more clean.

So the realtor will come. the house won't shine. and I'll keep working on boxes.

Too bad! I have boxes! Um, something I've done before is just go to the grocery store and ask for them. Usually they're really nice and will give you some, or they'll tell you when you can pick them up.

Are you really going to move? That's exciting!

Thanks!

I don't know - we're in no rush. So maybe we won't.

WHAT???? Where have I been? Are you really putting it up and making the move up north? I'll ask my parents if they still have the massive amounts of boxes from our-then-their moves.

Where have I been??? Jackie, we were supposed to be the last ones left in the 'hood. I can't do it without you!

Nothing's for sure. In fact, I don't know that we will actually be leaving Lehi. And Amy - I'm getting to the point where I totally want to stay. I'm thinking that with the market, even if we put the house up for sale it may not....so I'm kind of not worried about the actual moving part.

And, our real estate agent postponed our meeting until tomorrow. So, see? No need to worry. We're already on the track of not doing much of anything.

But Shawnda - if your parents have any boxes left, I will totally take them off of their hands.

where to??

wish i could give you all the boxes i have stacked outside the back door. too many boxes. is there a "freecycle" network in your hood? that's where i got all mine. from nice strangers online.

Sherry Carpet said...

okay, try this:

www.freecycle.org

find your local chapter and subscribe. i looked up your area and there are more than 2000 members there. it's a free yahoo group. a great place to get used boxes or give away things that you are sick of looking at. another man's treasure and all that...

good luck
