Our Next Goal to get Ahead

37 Carver St, Brandon, VT

37 Carver St, Brandon, VT House for sale

We need to sell our house.

The problem is, the people who have looked at it are in VT and are not exactly committed to buying a house. They look. They hem and haw, then they decide that maybe next year.

The people who are really looking to move to Vermont are those ready to retire or to find a home that they feel inspired to paint.

There are a lot of art galleries here.

The other group of people who will be willing to buy our house are “snow birds” or people looking for a summer home. Actually, our house is ideal for a summer home. It’s literally right down the road from town.

So my target “market,” are people who live in California, Florida, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Lower New York (like NYC, Manhattan, etc). In a few days, I’ll have a single page “ad” for the house.

In the meantime, for those of you who are friends with me on Facebook in these state, if you could share this link: http://on.trulia.com/2c42Bq4, that would help a lot!

Catching Up


Books (Photo credit: henry…)


Monday, I pretty much crashed. In spite of the “day off” on Sunday, I was really exhausted and slept most of the day. Tuesday and Wednesday was pretty much catch-up in basic housework. I’m finding that in the last week of this pregnancy, I seem to be unable to be on my feet for more than 20 minutes at a time. So it’s taking me longer than usual to catch up from not cleaning on Monday.


Today, I plan on going through the books in the living room, but this is by no means an easy task. I would much rather keep all of my books. Unfortunately, we won’t have enough room, which means I can’t have everything I want.


Now, I’m going through the books, eliminating the ones that are redundant, and taking notes from some of the reference books that I only use for specific information. The rest are outdated, or contain information that I can find online or at a library (educational books come to mind).


Perhaps it for the best, though, as I’ve always wanted to exchange my physical books for digital.  Actually, I had planned to digitize all of my physical notes, drawings, journals, etc., etc.


Sometime next week, I will be taking photos of the furniture and items that I plan to eliminate. Family gets first dibs, then friends, but only if they can come and pick it up. After that, it goes into a yard sale. Leftovers, after a couple of weekends will be in a “Free Stuff” box on the curb, in which will end up on the garbage truck on Tuesday.  I hope that we can get rid of enough stuff that there won’t be anything left by then.


The yard sale isn’t until the first weekend of May. I really don’t have a whole lot of time.

It’s Mere Hours Until 2013

Talk about procrastinating. We have changed the spare room into a walk-in pantry.  The problem is that it used to be a storage room. I had planned to either find a permanent place or eliminate the items that came from that room by the end of the year.

I’m about 10% done. Tomorrow is the last day of the year.  Yikes!

Well, I won’t be babysitting for the next couple of days, so I know what I will be doing all day… besides setting up my desk (more on that in a future post), and editing a montage video of 2012, finishing the design of this blog, and of course the normal stuff like cooking, cleaning, homeschooling, and keeping the kids from killing each other.

To say that I will be busy tomorrow, is an understatement. I don’t think I’ll be visiting any social sites, at least not tomorrow. News sites are also out of the question, but I guess I’ll live one day being ignorant on what the rest of the world is doing.

Perhaps sleep shouldn’t be an option either.
