So, this is what I've been doing for the past 2 weeks. Packing, packing and more packing.
The last time we sold a house and had to move, it was a week before Christmas and the buyer wanted to be in before Christmas, so it was a scuffle to get packed and moved in time.
This time, we had a little more warning. We sold the house the week after Christmas and will be moving out on February 28. So, I've been very methodical and packed every night and on weekends for the last 2 weeks. At first, I was very overwhelmed, wondering how I would get it done in time, but little by little I became less stressed as I saw more and more rooms cleared out.

Also, this move has given me a bit more time to think about the things I will miss. 2 things off the top of my head:
Addy and Jett sitting on our bed the whole day while we're gone to work, just looking at the birds.
The view of Drakes Creek out our back yard.
The upcoming week will be full of cleaning and dusting to get the house ready for the buyers. I'm thrilled that they value the view as much as we do and that they want to keep the window treatments and some of the decorations. It just makes me feel good.
