pack ratPosted: March 12, 2012
what is the worst thing for a hoarder and a procrastinator?
i’ll tell ya.
it’s moving. packing. ugh.
i’m considering a move.
i’ve never been one for inspirational quotes or motivational quotes or posters with motivational quotes or whatever. in fact they bug me. unless they make me laugh. but sometimes you happen upon something that sticks in your craw. and part of this was a craw sticker.
“if you do not move forward, you’ll always be in the same place.”
and that’s me, folks.
i am stuck.
i am oh so stuck. and i KNOW changes need to be made. i know for a fact i cannot stay in this job where i am currently. it’s killing me. mentally and physically. mostly mentally.
and i know i can’t keep living in a ghetto my entire life.
so i’m quietly planning an escape.
and that means packing. and i’ve got a LOT of stuff.
so i’ll be taking a time-out for a while so i can pack.
in addition to packing and moving, i’ve got weddings and graduations (out of state) to attend. and a first aid/CPR course to take so i can get my massage license in another state. i’m gonna be a’busy.
and the kicker is, i don’t really have a solid plan. i have a quasi-plan. and that half-baked plan changes pretty much daily.
but man, i gotta do something.
so look for me to start posting again sometime at the end of may-ish/june-ish if the move doesn’t kill me.
(all those coffee mugs in top photo are now packed away…it’s a start…)
(and that other photo is me wearing a thrifted woolrich nordic snowflake sweater.)
i will certainly miss the thrifting in these parts. i am centrally located to some pretty good stores now. where i’m going, who knows? if there’s no thrifting action where i land, there will always be garage sales, right? and like i’ve mentioned before, i don’t really need anything. at all.
and so til we meet again, i’ll be up to my eyeballs in newspaper and bubblewrap. catch ya later….
