I am feeling a little overwhelmed today. My house is a mess and there are boxes everywhere. Not to mention the sea of laundry that is all over the floor in front of the laundry closet.
I have probably started 50 lists for everything that needs to be done before we move. I have three weeks to save up enough to pay double rent for May, have utilities, internet, cable turned on at the new house, and make sure I remember to have everything turned off at our current house. We are renting, so I have to make sure I can do things like hang curtains and plant flowers.
Then there is all things I need to fix at our current rental before we move. The owner does not like the pretty grey walls in the master, so I have to repaint them. I have to touch up all the trim, and attempt to repair some molding my oldest took a knife to. Yes, I said a knife. All I can think is she was attempting to whittle. Then there is the broken window, and the carpets need to be cleaned. I should probably put a shot of whiskey in my coffee.
I am letting my little bit have ice cream for breakfast because we have been running errands all morning.
I am happy to report that my kitchen is almost packed, along with my closet. I was gong through some old CDs the other night and I love how random my taste in music is. George Strait, The Ramones, and an Andy Williams Christmas CD were just three on the list. Funny!
I walked another three miles yesterday, and my back is paying for it. I found some yoga stretches on you tube to help. So far so good. (Please contact a physician before you do any kind of physical activity). I am not your mother or your doctor.
Or just extracting it from simple things. For example, admist all my complaining about everything I have to get done, seeing my 6 year olds face light up this morning when she saw me at her awards ceremony made my day, or the way my little bit calls m&ms lemalems. It really is that easy to be happy!
So, I am going to sit down today and make my final two list. I am only making two. A list for the old house, and a list for the new house.
I will not let the devil get me down, and I will always remember this!
