    Congratulations I think? I'd say you'll start moving on the 9th and end sometime on the 11th. :)

  • Shez 17.12.08

    Oh my, moving in January.......were my first thoughts when I read your post. Then it took about 30 secs for it to sink in that, you do not live up this way, and it's not -20C, and snowing heavy... you guys are in your summer months. LOL I'd say you'd start moving on the 8th Jan,and keep at it till the very last minute:) Best wishes for a great holiday season and your new home Kim.

    For the last 20 years, we moved three times. All of them created a lot of fuss and mess. Since we're still in a temporary home, I am anticipating a fourth move. And I'll make sure that it will be the last. But I find house-hunting rather enjoyable.

    yesterday? (because I am always a day late)

  • Anonymous 10.2.09

    Yeah. Moving is one hell of an exhausting task i have ever experienced. First you have to pack all those things, then move them to new house and then set them again.Wow

  • Anonymous 19.2.09

    you bet it was not easy to gather all those things. Especially your store room stuff. So much stuff is in there when i was moving to a new house

  • Anonymous 20.2.09

    I know it is so hard to move.. as my father is in Govt. and we had to move whenever they got transfer.

  • Anonymous 22.2.09
