Deadlines are for suckers!

Well, Momma and Stew were supposed to put our house on the market last Thursday... but Momma called the realtor to delay things until tomorrow (Tuesday). Well, after reviewing the "progress" made this weekend, Momma is calling the realtor again today to tell her we'll be ready on Monday, April 7th. Stew and deadlines don't mix. I can't recall a time when he's actually made good on any Momma-imposed-deadlines... unless you count the times (in the old days) when Momma and Stew would have plans to meet friends out for drinks. Momma would tell Stew to be ready to go by 6:00pm, which meant Stew would be ready by 4:30pm and sitting in the basement drinking beers and getting an early start on the night. Anyway, we could probably have the house ready sooner, but Momma has Georgia on her mind (my cute way of saying Momma is flying to Georgia for work on Wednesday and won't be back until Friday night).

One thing Stew managed to do within a reasonable timeframe is order a storage container and have it dropped off in our driveway this morning. We plan to put all the junk from the basement (junk = Momma's "stuff" from college and her pre-Stew years), plus a couple pieces of furniture in the container so we can "stage" the house. The container carries a monthly rental charge, and some dude will be back next Monday to pick it up and take it to the storage container lot. Then, after we put the house on the market, we cross our paws and hope the house sells very fast so as to avoid multiple monthly storage charges from the container company. I'm also interested in seeing how Stew and Momma manage to move the 250 lbs treadmill from the basement, up the stairs and out to the container. I don't have high hopes for a successful outcome.

In the meantime, here's a picture of Claire hugging her Easter chick from Grandma Judy. Maybe one of the grandmas will buy Claire a comb one of these days... Anyway, more Easter photos and house project "progress" updates to follow sooon.
