In Which I Shake Fists at the Sky and Wait Some More

Once again with the waiting.

We are approved for lovely Townhouse we saw. It's only 7 miles /12 minutes from campus, it has 2 1/2 bathrooms, a garage AND an attic. Ok, the rooms are small and are all carpeted. Ok, it's all beige and white. But it's new and clean and nice, the layout works, and they will let us have the cats. So, we want to sign a lease.

We can't sign a lease yet. The inspector who inspected our house has to write a report about it for the buyer, so the buyer can sign a piece of paper that says they are cool with the inspection and if we fix the leaks/insulation things, all is right with the world. Our agent says she thinks it IS all good and cool and happy, but we should get the paper first just to keep it all even and good. So, we are waiting. *sigh* Waiting and waiting and waiting...

It is possible the buyers could back out at this point, but it isn't LIKELY. They have a limited window in which to do so, and that's running out. I think the universe is working in our favor, but I don't like to take anything for granted. So, I wait and I think good thoughts.

With a little fist waving. Just a little.

Attics are a must-have. Just be sure to label your boxes with huge numbers and then have a spreadsheet with the contents per numbered box.

Boxes in the attic are A-1, A-2. Garage are G-1, G-2 etc.

And I mean 8.5x11 sized labels - 3 million point font.

I concur with Whall, attics are a must have and kudos to his plan for organizing. I wold add one small caveat/idea: take pictures of the contents of the boxes and add them into the spreadsheet. However, don't do that for the boxes with the dead bodies and/or severed limbs. Those you ... just ... just don't take pictures of those. Not any more pictures, I mean.
