Things I’ve been up to (instead of packing)

3 days until we move! 

Probably.  Its kind of up to the loan writers- and you know how much I love waiting until the last minute to plan things! 

 

ZERO.  I love it zero.

But I’m ready!  Well, not physically-my-stuff-is-all-packed ready, but lets-rip-off-this-bandaid-and-get-out-of-here ready!

And I’m really having a hard time balancing it all-

regular clean-up, dishes, the food that these children keep demanding (why have we not invented food pellets for children yet?  Hungry?  Here are your food pellets- now go away!), the summer-fun I want them to be having, etc etc etc along with PACKING UP EVERYTHING.

Oh yes, and laundry.  I am failing at the laundry too, obviously

But “this too shall pass” and all that, and I’m sure in a few weeks time this will all seem worth it!

Fascinating! Hahaha! I mean, the laundry is a clutter and there are all those other stuff to do, but those moments are fleeting and at least you've had them. Anyways, as long as you have the receptacles on the ready, then sorting things out should not be too big a deal. Good luck!

I guess procrastination comes with human nature. Hahaha! I can't blame you for choosing to set aside packing your things until the last minute. It's kind of daunting, with all the things that come and go with it. But don't worry, as you've said, that too shall pass and will be worth everything. I hope you're settling in comfortably in your new home. All the best!
