One step closer

The company approved my husband's proposal - he'll work there four days a week, then commute back here on the weekends until I am able to move. So we're getting closer to moving, though it's not entirely a done deal - he still has to pass the background check and drug test, which should come back okay, but since we don't want to count our chickens, etc., we are waiting until the word is official before informing our respective employers about our plans.

I've been looking into real estate. Crap, it's expensive! No surprise, but still somehow shocking. Because of my (grudging) willingness to move, my husband has offered me ten (10) things that I want but must specify in advance. So far, I have figured out two: first, a new mattress once we move, and second, maid service weekly while we try to sell our house (instead of biweekly). Any suggestions for the others? They can't all cost too much money or we won't have any left over for, like, existence.

Laundry service. And a part time sitter. Maybe one evening during the week, so that you can get some packing and stuff done.

I think the bay area is taking a dive in the market now, so you may be able to get a "deal" on a house. I say deal with the strict meaning of "maybe it'll be "ass raping lite."

I second the sitter. Sitters, sitters, sitters.

Snow removal dudes/dudettes. At the rate we're going, you might need them up until June. They could maybe double as sitters as well.

I vote for a massage - if going for one is too expensive, tell your hubby to get his fingers ready.

How about professional packers to do the tedious (and fragile) stuff like dishes, glasses, framed things, etc.?
