FIRST – note there is a new contest. It only lasts 4 days, so get your entries in NOW! Follow the rules, please! 🙂
NEXT – it is raining. Hard. With lotsa wind. I like rain. Really, I do. But NOT when I am trying to pack, organize, have a yard sale, sort things, make difficult decisions and pack. (oh, did I say pack already?!) Rain makes me feel lazy, like curling up in my chair with a cup of chai tea latte, a good book (hell, even with a bad book!) and being swept away,ignoring the elements. Can’t do that. I have packed 4 boxes and 1 suitcase. Total. ACK! I am running out of room to store stuff already packed, and I can’t use the deck/porch I intended to use, because wind has spilled the rain all over the place out there. Okay. Deep breathing here… Ohmmmmm….
Another thing rainy days do, whether on Mondays or not, is make me question my sanity. In particular, my move. It is a good move, and will be a marvelous adventure. Just not in the rain. Hell, it is even raining in Arizona where we are moving! There is no escape! I have added today’s question to my interview with Betty Auchard, on Library Thing
(PLEASE visit!) updated my contest page here on the blog, answered emails and done whatever possible to avoid facing the mess that is my house these days. Remember the blog about rearranging furniture? That was a piece of cake compared to this! Before, during and after lists are being made, and we are stymied by the sheer mass of brain-cells required to make decisions, choices and plans.
LAST – I am busying myself by finding tasks for my husband to perform while I sit in my chair with my computer, in my pajamas, listening to the wind blow and the rain pound on the metal roof of our mobile home. I think he is on to me now… so my period of sloth is over… back to the arduous task of boxing up my life and moving it somewhere else!
