I have got to get moving!

For some reason, our silly apartment is not packing itself! I just don't get it.

And Hubby had told me he would do ALL the packing for or move and guess what? He has not packed a single box. Oh, some boxes are packed, but I did them.

We HAVE done a lot of sorting and tossing and continue to sort and toss, so I guess once stuff is sorted and pared down, the packing part won't take as long. And we DO have 3 weeks to pack as we decided to move the last Thursday of the month. Our apt manager told us we could have the apartment sooner at no charge, but Hubby thinks we can go ahead a wait until the last week. Maybe he figures he will get motivated and get us packed up by then.

No, I am not really expecting him to do it all himself.

Today, we are waiting to hear from a couple of my girlfriend's boys as Hubby decided we would get rid of his weight bench and they were ecstatic when I asked if they would want it. Once they come get it, we will have more room to stack boxes and maybe it will be easier to get motivated to pack boxes.

We shall see.

I also have to get motivated to list our aquarium for sale or giveaway. We have a 20 gallon that we have had for years, but our new apartment has a fireplace on the wall that currently has our aquarium on it. LOL! The floor plan is like ours, only flipped and with a fireplace. So, I figured I would give the aquarium away, but know no one that wants one. So I think I will list it on a Garage Sale page for my area that is on Facebook. I may list it for $25 or $50 and just give it to anyone that is interested. I was afraid that if I listed it for free I might have too many responses to deal with.

I used to list free stuff on Freecycle, but my town's freecycle site is really inactive. I may check out the ones for other local communities, as I would just as soon give it away. Of course, I will have to drain it and rehome the 6 remaining fish we have. But it has been an nice hobby to have, so I won't complain about rehoming it.

Well, I guess I will get up and do something.

Hope everyone is having great weekend!

Tell Sweet Knees to get off his keester and get packing! lolz

3 weeks left to go should give you enough time to get it all done tho.

Good job on unloading the weights...they would be a monster to move!
I hope you find a buyer for your fish tank. 8-)

I'm like you I want it all done, now. But I think that if you do slow down a bit and keep dejunking, it will be even better and more organized in your new place.

Weights and bench are gone and my "other" boys were SO excited to get them.

Hubby has been doing some sorting and weeding this weekend. We have several bags to go to the dumpster and a couple to head to the thrift store.

We will get there.
