Oh Boy...

Here we go.  The movers are coming on Thursday to start packing!  I am only going to live in this house a few more days!! Uh! I am scared and excited and everything rolled up into one. We brought the camper to the house today, we are going to stay in it until we find a place to live in Georgia. Don't worry, it's not like "camping"!!  It's like a mini home.  So I am good.  It will still be a bit stressful all being so close under one roof, but we have done it before and it was fine.

I have a million and one things to do still.  My lists never end! And as soon as one might, I add to it.  Thank God we have movers to do all the stressful packing!!  Thank God the military pays for that.  That is just too much for me. I have done it before and it is NO fun!!  I like them to do it, thank you very much!

I need to really keep a hold of as much simplicity in craziness as I can this week.  If I start to feel stressed, I need to step back for a minute and chill.  It is going to be a challenge.

I will have my ipad as I move, so I should be able to update the blog from it.  It will help keep me sane!  You all help keep me sane!

Another thing I plan on trying my best to do... Don't sweat the small stuff!!  I have thoughts of going through every drawer and every cabinet and cleaning and rearranging before the movers get here, but I know that is just NOT practical, or really necessary!  So I will be trying to resist that urge as much as possible.  I keep telling myself, "I am clean. The house is clean. They don't care if there is one thing out of place or a spoon where the forks are supposed to be... " Hopefully it will work!!

I will try to take hot baths and breath in and out!  And I will try not to run and hide when they are in the house packing.  I will feel uneasy but I know I am going to feel that way, and I know that I just will have to deal with it.  Funny what we 'know' sometimes, wish my brain would follow along with it though.

Oh well... I just wanted to update.  Send me good thoughts and prayers!!♥

(Can you tell I was typing and thinking this all in super fast motion??  My mind is on blitz right now!)


  1. I will be thinking about you and saying a prayer for you, too, as you embark on the move. Be good to yourself and remember to breathe!

  2. Be thinking about you during your move, Good Luck sweetie xx

  3. Good luck with the move. I like all the plans you have for keeping stress and anxiety to a minimum. You CAN do it!!!
