Saturday, September 22, 2012

I am so glad that this move is just about here! I am wiped out! Still have packing to do, but my mom and my baby sister came by tonight and we got a couple more rooms done! My shed is cleaned out and ready to be moved tomorrow!

So tomorrow:

Work 8 hours - get off at 2:30 pm.

Bring animals to kennel for safekeeping.

Pick up moving truck.

Confirm plans w/ mover.

Time for hot shower and bed! Did not sleep well at all last night and really need to sleep tonight!

    Good luck on your move. I also just moved....luckily not too far this time, but I inherited a mother in law, and her 2 dogs (on top of my 2). Moving can be a very exciting but a bit stressful too(maybe my stress comes from the in law. lol), so remember to take time for yourself and to breathe :) emoticon

Today was so long and yet so short.

I worked today for 10 hours and it was busy for a time and then during slow times I could spark, which is really helpful to me!

About 3 pm when I had about 2 hours left of work, my stomach started rumbling and growling and I was just praying I was not going to be sick now. I don't have time to be sick! I made it until 5 o'clock and ran to the bathroom.

I then laid down on the couch and it started to spin - I thought oh no, I am in trouble but I can't be sick! I have 18 hours of work yet over the next two days and have to be ready to start moving stuff out after that. After laying down for a couple of hours, getting something to eat and keeping it down - I am thinking (and hoping) I ate something that did not agree with me. I am going to bed early tonight without having done much, but sometimes we need to take care of ourselves before we become so sick we can't do anything at all.

It sounds like my mom and another sister may come over tomorrow night and hopefully we will be able to get more packed and then after Sunday, my husband will be here and we can finish packing and loading then. We will have time to rest and relax on Monday when we are between homes and will be staying at a hotel, hopefully relaxing by a pool or better yet, whirlpool! I like that idea.

Keep sparkin' - even if it isn't perfect, it still is something!

Today was crazy busy!

Up at 7 to go get boxes.

Sister here from 830 until 230 helping me pack and we accomplished alot. Craft room, spare room, most of bedroom, livingroom backed. Still have kitchen and my office to do.

A truck load went to the dump today and I another load went to donation.

I am exhausted and think I will head for bed. Already took a relaxing bath per sister's instructions. Just don't feel well and think stress is really starting to get to me. I will be much better this time next week.

Need to call vet tomorrow about faxing paperwork to kennel for animals.

Work 10 hours tomorrow - pack office!

    Give your sister a hug! I think a hot or warm shower/bath can help almost anything. Be good to yourself..there is only one you!

Wow! Time is really flying by. Made progress today. My good friend came over and my craft room in pretty much in the box. My spare room is as well and I was able to tear the carpet out in there so it can go to the dump tomorrow.


My sis is coming over to help me pack.

An old classmate of mine from high school that I haven't seen in 30 years will be bringing a load to the dump. Thank you facebook.

I will bring a load to St. Francis Homeless Shelter in our town that they will go through to give to people that will be moving into there own home soon.

Shed should be cleaned out and ready to move tomorrow as well.

One load to hazardous waste.

Back to work Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Start loading the UHaul on Sunday!

I will be ready to get back to my routine. I am not doing as well as I would like with my program but I refuse to let it go altogether!

What not to do when you are stressed with so much to do? Don't overdose on a bunch of frozen yogurt! My sugars feel like they went through the roof and I have been sluggish all day since. I also haven't eaten anything else since then. Nothing even sounds good.

Not much progress on the move today. I had to work 4 hours today towards my mandatory overtime and had lunch w/ my friend, which was awesome. Then frozen yogurt overkill and all went downhill from there.

So tomorrow: Eat right for maximum energy!

I have a friend coming over to visit before I move and she will help me pack too! Start at the front of the house and work my way back.

My sister is coming in Thursday morning to help pack.

Charity will be going Thursday and hopefully a load to the dump on the same day.

UHaul is on Sunday

Animals to temp boarding home Sunday.

Most important will be to check in here and spark!
