UPDATE(about an hour and a half after original post):  Ok.  I just (mostly) packed up the two tall bookshelves.  Now I don't feel completely lazy and worthless.  Phew.

Why, yes, I am a step away from being in full-blown panic mode.  Why do you ask?

Oh.  The scream above?  Yes, I suppose that would be a clue, wouldn't it?  Hmmmmm.

Right now I am working hard to not cry.  I am resting on my bed, blogging to you, and trying not to look at all the packing I have left to do.  Before Saturday morning.  Yes, I know that I still have two more days before Saturday.  Would you like to know what I have to do in those two days?  No?  Too bad.  This is my blog and if I want to blog about it, I will. ;P

Tomorrow is 8th grade graduation.  Yes, we have one.  Please don't get me started on how I really feel about it.  After graduation I have the 6/7th grade awards ceremony.  Then my goal is to come home, change, and finish packing up the front room (two tall bookshelves FULL of books, plus additional stuff that will eventually go in the shed), and the kitchen (one cabinet, all pots and pans, all dishware, the fridge/freezer, and various small appliances) and take all that over to the new place, unpack and put most of it away (except the books because I can't move the bookshelves alone).  Oh, and then go to bed.  If you're lucky, you'll get a post.

Friday is senior graduation.  I have practice at 1:30 and then I am hoping to get home by 2:30.  I have to be back at the school by 6:00.  Between those two times my goal is to finish packing up the dining room and empty my closet here and take everything over to the new place.  Sometime in there I will need to eat something, too.  After graduation, I need to finish packing up the bathroom (not too much left there). 

Saturday, bright and really early, I will pick up the U-Haul.  I will have about a half an hour to get things together before people (hopefully) show up to help me.  All the big stuff goes on Saturday.  The monster couch, the behemoth armoire, my desk, my bed, the two tall bookshelves, two tall cabinets from Ikea, the stuff in the shed, the stuff in the spare room (unless I can get that done perhaps Friday night), and all the various STUFF that I am forgetting.

Do you feel sorry for me?  You do?  Awwwwww!!!!  Thanks!  Now, COME HELP ME!!!!! :)

Really, I am still super happy about all this, I'm just panicking because, when I look around, I have this overwhelming feeling that I don't know how it is going to get done.  Have I mentioned that I really have too much stuff?  It is getting to the point where I am thinking, "Heck with it.  I don't need it.  THROW IT AWAY!!!!"

Girlie is liking the new place more.  She found a sun-spot today and was super happy.  Then she heard noises and started barking.  I hope my new neighbors like spoiled rotten divas sweet little puppies.  I think that, once all my STUFF is in the house and it smells more familiar to her, she will settle down.  I took her out to play in the yard for a little and she LOVED it.  I was so happy.  She kept running all over and then looking at me like she was having the time of her life. :)  As long as she's happy, then we are all good. :)

Don't be surprised if I'm not around much the next few days.  I'll try to blog at least once before Saturday but then you won't hear from me until Monday night (I hope by Monday night).  I couldn't get an appointment with Verizon (to hook up the Fios--I'm hooked on that) until Monday afternoon.  Two days with no high-speed, no TV, and no land-line.  Please see the scream above.  Anyway--I'll be back as soon as I can and I will miss you while I am gone--I promise! ;)


  1. Stop worrying so much would ya! It will get done, we have Saturday. It will be so much fun for you to be in your own house! Raven is going to love being the top girl in her own house!

  2. I know when I moved I felt the same. Fortunately I had a lot of help with the packing and moving. I also didn't have any deadline which helped, but it was still an overwhelming amount of work.

  3. Reading this post I know one of the reasons we are BFFs. Your brain runs just like mine! ;P Chill, take time to go to Starbucks and refresh, it will all work out. :)
    Can't wait to see it!!! :)
