Craigslist, Cleaning, and Cuddling

So, we have been trying to thin out our home in order to make the move go seamlessly. I put up about 10 postings on Craigslist two days ago and within minutes my email was blowing up!! I literally received 25 emails in the first 3 hours after posting the items. That was followed by 40 more emails the next morning and several phone calls. We've had more than 10 strangers in our home buying items and that has been in the past two days alone!!

A friend of mine had tenants in her house here in KY and they moved out early (broke their lease). So- I offered to go clean her 4500 sq ft house right around the corner from where we live. I wanted to bust it out in one day, so I left this morning at 8am and by the time I got the carpet cleaner from my parents and grabbed some cleanser from the store and made it back to her house, it was 9am. I began cleaning right away. I finished at 12:30. I was quite proud of the work and the timing. I made $200!! I could get used to that....

My kids are starting to feel the pressures of moving already. Jenna said, "Mom, all you do is work on the computer and have people come over from Craigslist!" I felt horrible. Tonight, Rob has a gig with his band, so I thought the kids and I could have some quality time together. NO CRAIGSLIST STRANGERS TONIGHT!! Only my cute little family and a free movie from MovieCube at Krogers!! I can't wait! Kids- grab the's time to cuddle!
