Pack a box or clean up doggie doo doo????
Oh how great it is to be me, I swear things happen that make me shake my head and wonder if the universe is just playing a cruel joke......this is just an example of how things usually go around here.
Today we have to dismantle both trampoline and swing set and I find myself coming up with all sorts of excuses to not do it.
Funny thing is that most of the time I don't even have to try and find something else to do, I just bring it upon myself.
Like this morning I went into the kitchen and started up the coffee machine.....if you know me at all you will understand the love I have for that thing. (hence why I'm taking it with me on the move, if a mover comes at me with a box for my coffeemaker, I will seriously hurt somebody!)
I get the coffee going and then look around the kitchen and remember "I need to finish packing that instant aid box". I walk over to it and notice that one of the dogs has pooped right next to the box, so I walk into the bathroom to get toilet paper and notice that the seat is up, before I set it down I decide to just go ahead and give the toilet a good clean, which I do. When I'm done I figure the whole bathroom might as well get a once over to match the sparkly clean toilet.....yeah you know where this is heading, I cleaned the bathroom.
When I was done I walked into the living room and sat at the computer chair to check my email, the dog poop and the "instant aid box" completely out of my mind. Then I realize that I haven't had my coffee so I got into the kitchen and pour myself a cup. Now I'm sitting there sipping the coffee and start looking around again trying to remind myself of what needs to be done, lo and behold I see the box again, which prompts me to walk towards it only THIS time I wasn't as lucky because I stepped RIGHT into that doggie doodoo.
Moral of the story??? ALWAYS WEAR SLIPPERS AROUND THE HOUSE!!!!
I am happy to report that the poop has been cleaned up, my feet washed, the box has had some more items added to it and I'm happily sipping on the now cold coffee, not sure why I'm so happy about that but I guess anything is better after you've literally stepped in it.
It's pretty much crunch time and from today until thursday morning we'll be busy and exhausted and overwhelmed and stressed. It's going to be a rollercoaster of emotions but I'm fully prepared for it, I even bought some kleenex in case I have a little meltdown LOL
Since we'll be staying at the house until we leave, we won't have anything but our clothes, a small tv, the kids video games, our computers and an air mattress to sleep on. Sound like fun???
See I thought that I would be freaking out but then I realize that this will be an adventure, when do you ever get to camp out in your living room and eat out of paper plates on the floor???
Other than the times mommy is too tired to use actual dishes for dinner and couldn't care less if they sprawl out in front of the tv, though in my defense that has only happened when I'm really sick or lately with all the packing.
Well Curt just woke up and we need to get things under way, can't wait until the whole house is echoing because that will mean everything is gone. Watch out Arizona, here comes trouble LOL
You all have a wonderful sunday, have a glass of iced tea for me will ya??? I'm going to be sweaty and cranky by the time the day is over. Oh the joys of moving!!!
