After the Montana wind finally destroyed our poor gate a few weekends ago, it was fixed on Friday.  It ended up being quite the undertaking to find someone that could get to it quickly.  Don't get me wrong, I am very happy things are picking up for these handymen, but dang, I just needed the gate fixed.  Handyman B was able to handle replacing some of the posts that needed fixing so now all our gate issues are complete.

Painting has been going well until one runs out of paint and then the temperature drops.  Once the remaining half of my room gets painted we will be in business.  Hopefully the house will get on the market this week and we get a big bite.  It will be a big relief knowing it is going to sell and we can begin to look in MO.

Willa has been a trooper as I have boxed up the house around her or sold things.  Other than a few toys and a pair of sweatpants that she flipped out about, it has gone well.  I have sold almost $300 worth of stuff and donated a ton.  So glad I started the decluttering awhile back and wish had done more.  It sucks to think how much we have spent on some things that have gone back out the door.  I also know we will be able to purge some more things even after we get there because I know on at least one day when I was on a packing spree I was more packing thoughtlessly than purging.

Haven't quite figured out what the best move plan is yet because...well my depth perception sucks, so I really don't know how much stuff we have, plus all the furniture and washer and dryer.  Once we get the garage situated though, I hope we have a better handle on it.

Willa has been a hoot lately.  Having her dad back home means she has stepped up her funny game.  Get those two on a roll and they just think they are a little duo of funny.  And the poor dogs are always happy to get a break from the pestering.  Bosco learned last night that having a girl owner means you get to dress up to play wedding even when you are a boy dog.  She got a balloon at a birthday party and that was his main accessory.

We have been staying pretty busy just trying to get things situated and figured out.  It still seems like everything is happening in such a blur.
