That's my life lately.
I have a hard time dealing with changes...even if they are for the better. I have my routines and when they are thrown off...I am not a happy camper.

I have been struggling with eating, I am hungrier more often than I have been in a long time and working on getting back on track. My normal weight range for the last couple months has been 278-283...this morning I weighed at 285. I knew it was going to show up after the weekend of eating that I had, and I know its salt and will come off within a day or two.

I have been busy packing and getting ready for our move. My beau is very limited on what he can do physically but he does try to help...which stresses me out more because I am afraid that he is going to hurt his stubborn self! I/we finally, FINALLY got the fish tank all cleaned out and ready to go yesterday. Its a gorgeous 30 gallon half moon tank, but it weighs a TON. It was about 2/3 full of water and I made about 15 trips back and forth to the sink emptying it, when it got down to where I couldn't reach it, my beau made about 10 trips. Finally, with about 5 gallons of water and rocks left in there, I had my son help us scoot the stand into the bathroom and we got the water emptied into the tub, then scooted the whole thing into the kitchen where it took me about another hour to empty and wash out the gravel and get the tank washed and dried out. Even when its empty, its heavy. When we go, the tank will be wrapped in blankets and packed into the car along with the computers.

I also got one book shelf cleaned off and all of the dvd's and gaming software is packed away. The other book shelf is the problem one...the one with all the books, lol!
I love my books but hate moving them because the weight adds up so fast. Oh, and I started on packing up the closet as well, I have all the stuff that we won't be wearing any time soon packed up and all that is left is the clothing that we will need with us. Good God at the amount of closet space we have now!

Things are going along surprisingly smooth, its just the change in my everyday doings that have me feeling off. Like, now, when I get home from work, instead of going for a walk/jog, I am sorting, packing, and/or cleaning. I think part of the problem is that now I am finally over being sick for the better part of December/January and since I feel better, I WANT to get back to working on my jogging and now lack the time/energy. I am trying to find solace in the fact that sorting, packing, and cleaning is decent exercise.

    Packing is LOTS of work, I know so well. Is where you moving, does it have lots of storage like you are leaving?

    Books: I have tons (ha, literally) of craft books I really like (quilting, drawing, papercraft) and two medium bookcases of books I like to read or bible study things.

    Though they are a pain, it is worth it in the long run.
    I did weed out some books before my move but knew
    I'd want most of them later on.

    It certainly does burn calories to pack and lug boxes later on.

    I like what Jenae said. Packing and unpacking will be over soon enough and you can get back to sparkin' more often. The end is in sight!

    The nice thing about moving is that there is a beginning, a middle and an end.
