The Weekend of Doing ALL the Things!

So the house is going up on the market this coming Friday, and while we've made huge strides in curb-appealing it, we've got a ton to do still, and we're gonna do most of it in the next 3-4 days. Tomorrow will be spent going to a nursery and getting a boatload of hastas and ferns to put into the muddy hollow that is our front yard, as well as trimming overgrown shrubberies and generally prettying up the yard. Sunday will be spent taking my huge and beloved (but huge) drafting table over to its new home at my sister's house, probably followed up with going to the College Park Ikea to buy a bunch of furniture (to replace some of the pieces we're getting rid of with smaller, more efficiently arranged ones).

On top of that we've still got to do painting, cleaning out the garage, moving some of the furniture to temporary storage and calling Goodwill to come pick up large chunks of the rest, shampooing the carpets, and cleaning out as much of the Junk Drawer Room as possible.

So... yeah. Gonna be busy for a few days.

One of the net results is that there won't be any new SJ pages next week, although that doesn't mean no content: today I did some sketches that will run in the blog section of the website on the days we'd usually have pages. I'm quite pleased with both sketches, and will probably develop Wednesday's into a cover and put a whole issue behind it... later.

Honestly, I'm pretty excited about the upcoming changes, even though they're going to mean a hectic few days, and I'm hopeful about the house's chances of selling this time.

That said, if anyone out there wants a big ol' desk, credenza, and bookshelf, or a big ol' arts & crafts style sofa, they're all looking for homes. You just gotta come get them some time in the next 10 days. :)
