so much to do.

I have just realised that I actually haven't posted a 'proper' post in ages, its all been about awards and family etc... so whats up with me?

Well, I woke up this morning to the realisation that I have only three full weekends left until I leave for Johannesburg. So I am currently in a mild state of complete panic! Only three weekends, because either we are away or I have family down for the holidays.

Our house officially goes on the market next week. We have already been speaking to agents, but officially it's from next week. The worst possible time to be selling our house I know, but we have too. Another panic attack sweeps over me.

I also need to get the house in order for the family that are coming down. I have not even started any Christmas or holiday shopping.

I also need to start planning in case we do sell quickly, what then, as I will be in Joburg. So I need to start organising what we will need to put into storage and what we need to keep. As well as start getting quotes for moving companies etc...okay, the mild panic has now escalated into a full blown melt down.

So I am busy compiling a list, a long one, of things to do and I am starting this weekend.
So much to do, so much to do, so much to do....breath...



UPDATED: My amazing Dad just phoned to find out how we are doing, and to tell me to calm down, and I must stop stressing and worrying about everything, and that everything is going to be fine...how sweet are my folks?

Oh Hayley, dont stress! It will all work itself out. Just put on some Christmas music, get your coffee and then start making your list. You'll be just fine.

Ick - our house also goes on the market next month. Just in time for school hols.

I break into a sweat thinking of trying to keep it is 'show condition' with 3 kids at home.

It does sound like you got waaaayyy to much going on girl but you will be fine.

If it all gets too much just go make cupcakes and watch Oprah. Used to work for me in my former life....!

Hayley said...

Thanks Heather, sounds like a plan!

Hayley said...

Thanks Brazen, going to need it :-)

Hayley said...

hey Emily, great idea, except not sure about the free part over here but at least it wil save me some time.

Hayley said...

Mel, why are you guys selling...thats the part I hate the most about keeping it spotless.
At least I know I wont be the only one :-)
Good luck

I dont envy you but a couple of things I have learnt. Tell the agent/s that you will only allow viewers 2 x a week and give them the days or if you have a domestic then give the agent a time of the day that they may bring people or it just gets totally out of hand. Start packing now!! you will be amazed at how much stuff you have that you CAN live without. Good luck. PS I used Stuttafords to move from Jo burg to CT and they were OK no great shakes certainly not worth the extra amount I paid.

Ness said...

You're moving? Where to?

Kitty Cat said...

Yes, I agree with Heather Nicole, just one step at a time.

Hayley said...

Thanks so much Joanne!
Good idea about telling the estate agent about the days....so going to do that...aswell as telling them that no visitors while the family are here...thats just hectic.
We used Biddulphs from Jhb to CT, they were very good, excpet some one else was paying, this time around we will probably go the cheaper route.
