Time To Move On…

It’s time to move on, time to get going
What lies ahead, I have no way of  knowing
But under my feet, baby, grass is growing
It’s time to move on,  it’s time to get going

Totally cheesy, I am well aware, but these Tom Petty lyrics keep playing in my head…

Purge, purge, purge. To date, I have made $2200 from all of the stuff I’ve sold on Craigslist and SwopBoard. If you know where I live, please don’t rob me. I really, really want to sell my dining room set so I can buy these Room & Board chairs, they would look so perfect in my new house! As much as I love the cash, it’s not just about the selling, it’s about the donating and getting rid of stuff I don’t use anymore. It feels so good!  Old toys, clothes, shoes, etc. – get that shit outta my house! Moving has been the best motivator to pare down.

Out with the old, in with the new. As I just sold my old Bose home audio system, I was allowed to buy a new speaker. I chose the Sony HT-CT660 Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer ($300). I like it! It’s a different deal than the little speakers I had before, the sound is good, but I’m an audio layperson, so I’m not too particular. I also bought a new remote, which was just as expensive as the speaker, the Logitech 915-000201 Harmony Ultimate Remote with Customizable Touch Screen and Closed Cabinet RF Control ($349). This guy will replace the need for the 4 remotes I am currently using (Xbox, TV, cable, speaker) and I will be able to hide all of the boxes in my new built-in cabinets, yay! I bought it on Best Buy and it came with 1 hour of Geek Squad time, so they will do the programming for me. It is very, very sad that this may be the most exciting news of my day.

I move in less than a month. Movers have been secured, Comcast is being transferred (that is the #1 item on the list of things that need to be ready the day I move in, duh), new furniture is being delivered, this is all coming together spectacularly.

Here’s a little sneak peek. (Please note, these pics were taken by my mom, hence the odd angles)
