Thoughts Meander Like a Restless Wind Inside a Letter Box

Sometimes G.'s impulse is to throttle first and ask questions later.

Okay, kids. I'll just apologize now for my bad blogging practices this week. I'm not sure how much time I'll have to write and/or visit blogs this week. I'll do my damnedest, but with the cleaning, packing, moving and then more cleaning, unpacking and starting to work on the house, my time could be extremely limited. I'm taking Thursday and Friday off work this week to move. I'm not sure how quickly I'll get my computer and internet hooked up after I move in, so I could be off-line for a couple of days too.

She's working very hard to keep her hands to herself...

I also want to make a big point to say that just because I bitch about packing, doesn't mean that I don't appreciate having my house. I try very hard to appreciate everything and everyone I have in my life. Since it's almost Thanksgiving, I might as well get a jump on counting my blessings and I feel really fortunate to be in this position...I'll just feel that much better once I'm moved and in and can start doing some work on it.

...And remember that hands are for helping, not for hurting.

This weekend was great, if not a blur. I got to run everyday and I went out for a couple of hours on Saturday night, which was perfect. I really needed to get out of my mess of an apartment in transition. I'm sure this week will just fly by. I just hope I can get everything done by Thursday.

There is no way not to complain about cleaning and packing! Thanksgiving really does make this the perfect time for all of this to be happening though, doesn't it?

Glad you got your downtime this weekend. And don't you worry about blogs! We'll still be here when you get more free time :-)

I'm so happy for you, Churlita.

Packing is the worst. Except for unpacking. I feel it's kind of healthy to have a vocal distaste for it. ;)

So glad you found a sub-letter btw. Phew!

Good luck with the move!

Packing and unpacking: sounds like a great opportunity to "clean" house.

Hey, get things situated and get all moved in to your brand new home, don't worry about us! We'll be waiting for you. It's up to you to decide if that's creepy or caring. Hehe. :D

What laura b. said. Whoever invented cleaning and packing was a nut.

I hate packing too, but once it is done and you are "home" what a thrill that will be... YAY!

Don't worry about blogging... we are all going to be here and we all do that on occasion too. Nothing eats more time than moving.

I can't wait to be complaining like you are complaining. Now I'm just sitting nervously wondering if my entire loan may fall through because the bank is stupid.

You can do it!! I am cheering for you. Maybe we can all take a break from reading your blog - give you a vacation from it - while all this packing and moving is happening - just so you won't have to worry about it. Don't check to see if anyone is looking either - just do what you need to do.

Take your time and be careful while packing. Don't lose anything in the shift and come back when you're done. Have fun, packing is a PitA, but it's so worth it.
