Ok, dear friends... prepare to be amazed... prepare to be amused... prepare to SHOP!

i just got the first email from the Endless Knot giving alert to their impending Warehouse Sale November 8 - 11th. Be there or be square. Come once, come every day!

For those who love their clothing and know it well, but somehow managed to miss the email list... here's your warning. For those who have never shopped there before, but like my flowy clothes.... here's your chance. All their stuff (normally $60-200) is on SALE.... usually from $5-$20 for "regular" pieces and around $40 for silks. These are off-season pieces, sample pieces, 2nds (that have flaws you wouldn't really notice unless you were THE seamstress), and odds-and-ends.

If you want to make a little party of it, let me know and we can set up a couple shopping excursions (i try to go several times because they put out new stock every day... and Sunday she does extra discounts). Or... go by yourself and treat yourself to a new outfit or two for less than a pair of jeans. :)
The Movers and Moving Van arrive Wednesday morning bright and early... our goal is to have 90% of the house packed and moved prior... or at least off of all the things that we want the movers to move. i am low on motivation, so it is taking me forever do to the work that would take 2 hours if i focused. But i am also washing dishes and clothes as i pack. And poking on the Internet. And watching some TV.

So... on the the REAL reason of this post... stuff that will need a new home. Or some of it, anyway.

1) We have a couch and loveseat... it wasn't the best when we got it, and a year of kids and cats has left it with a couple more stains and a bit of scratching on one arm. The loveseat comes with a white cover... the couch with a comforter for a cover. Free is a good price. :) Comfy enough.... definitely.

2) 4' tall x maybe 30" cabinet... again, not in the best shape, structurally sound, but the finish isn't great.

3) 4' tall dresser... it is white and looks nice... it should have 5 drawers, but only has 4 since one drawer got broken when my son stood on it. We just keep the empty one on the bottom and put clear plastic boxes there for adl. storage.

4) 3' tall dresser... wood and 4 drawers and (honestly) ugly. But very sturdy.

5) Small 3-drawer bedside table sized chest of drawers. Also pretty ugly, but works ;)

6) What was once the "printer stand" part of a Sauder desk set... now being used as a bedside table. In decent shape.

All are free, unless you want to give us something for it (money, cookies, a starbucks drink.. :)
i am... overwhelmed and afraid and scared and terrified and panicked and obsessed and dead inside.

i don't know how i am going to make it through this move. To be prepared. To be financially able. i need to rehome my chinchillas. i need to rehome most/all my birds. i may need to rehome my dog. i need to get rid of at least half of my "stuff" - or more. And i have maybe 8 weeks to do it all. And i want to crawl into a hole and fill it in after me.

Mom is coming down tomorrow to help. And of course, the thought of her seeing my house so messy is making me want to hide even more. i need to sort through at least one room a week - sort and pack. If i can sort and pack one room a week, i will be pretty much ready by the time we have to move. 4 upstairs rooms - living room, 'school' room, family room, kitchen/dining room. But i have to add in the storage shed and the pantry area. One a week may not sound so bad... but most of you haven't seen my house. And... in addition... i need to get [livejournal.com profile] darkmuffin back on school track, do all the cooking and routine cleaning,... plus find a new place to live, figure out where to get the money to pay for the move, keep on top of all the bills, screen homes for the animals, get [livejournal.com profile] darkmuffin to hockey on time at least twice a week (Sat and Sun mornings by 7:30 usually), and make time for time with my husband. Oh... and maybe time for me, too.

i went through several boxes tonight... i am trying to be brutal. i have kept about 1 box of the 10 i have sorted through so far. i have thrown out all the writings and papers and cards and letters and stories from the past 30 years or so that i have been hanging onto for no good reason. i found my girlscout pins/patches... they are gone now. i found letters from an old love... gone. Pictures and papers and notes and letters. Who needs things and stuff... the memories are there or they aren't. If they are, then wonderful. If they aren't, do they really need to be dredged up again? i found some rose potpourris that my friend Jill and i made when we were about 14 - amazingly it still smelled fresh and strong nearly 24 years later. Gone. The glass bottle is up for grabs.

There is so much up for grabs. Books. Records. Betta tanks. Decorative boxes. Baby/craft scale. Dishes. Books. Clothing/shoes. SCA style/Con style clothing (none my size now... and who knows if i'll be that size again or if i'll ever do things like the SCA or Cons again anyway). Stones. Petrified wood. Books. Free or donation.

For sale i know we have at least 1 DVD player. A pilates performer similar to this one only with 4 resistance cords and with burgandy/brown, not black, vinyl and no videos. A spinning wheel with some fibre. A table loom. Probably a TV. Probably another DVD player. Probably a VCR. Likely a surround system that does great for TV and for radio, but whose DVD/CD player part is broken - or free on that one.

To add to the joy, i am having sleeping issues again. And stomach issues. And eating issues.

And i still want to be in a hole. Oh. i am.
Hi all. More things to re-home. This one is for sale, though. It is a 10k men's wedding band... never used. It is a size 11 or 12... plain and very solid. It is from Fred Meyer Jewelers and is the 'comfort fit' style - which means the edges are slightly rounded so that it is more comfortable for men who use their hands.
