Sunday Afternoon Procrastination

I spent a few hours yesterday sorting/tidying/throwing out. I was shocked by HOW LITTLE I accomplished. There are boxes and boxes and closets and cupboards and basements full of things to be sorted, sold, thrown out and given away. I have no idea how I'm going to get all of it done. Oh, and for the next two weeks, I am completely busy with work, on a project that I can't get out of, so there will be little sorting/packing/throwing out going on until that's done.

I have to schedule the movers tomorrow, and we decided that the latest we can schedule them is SIX WEEKS FROM TOMORROW. Six weeks isn't a very long time. It's going to fly by. Ay-ay-ay-eeeeeeeeeeee.

The good news, I suppose, is that I have our housing sorted out. We'll have a furnished two bedroom two bath place while I'm in training. Everything will go into storage on the company's dime while I am in training. So essentially, once we get throug the next six weeks, life will be a lot easier, because it will just be a matter of moving our personal stuff in, and showing up for work.

I'm sure it will all get done somehow. I think.

it does sound like you will have a busy and exciting six weeks! I hope it goes well for you!

You ~will~ get it all done. It is funny how six weeks can seem so far away and so close all at the same time.

I'm just catch up here -- but I know how hard it is to leave a place that you feel tied and connected to.

I'm wishing you strength on this journey -- I hope its a new chapter!

We just packed and moved in 11 days. It sucked, but it can be done. Of course, we also moved within the same town.... But you get my point.

I'm wishing you lots of luck. We talk about making a drastic move every now and then and I do think sometimes about the things we would miss.
