Well, since our offer was accepted on the house a few weeks ago, we've gone through a round of shuffling paperwork here and there. We've met with inspectors, we've had our minds officially blown by the amount of work that has to go into it and we've avoided packing.
All in all it's pretty successful. :)
I have the desire the pack, but not the drive. Part of me doesn't want to start because I know it will be more shifting stuff from one room to another as opposed to packing it up.
I need to start a "Garage Sale" pile, "Throw out" pile, and "Pack" pile. We obviously can't pack everything because we still have to live here another month, but I can pack the non-essentials. Books, winter clothes (because Lord knows we aren't using them in this 1000 degree heat), movies. Yes, I'll pack up my movies. I haven't been watchimg them lately because of the book I'm reading.
Which brings me to reason #35 why I am not packing right now. The Help is such a good book!!!
I've had it for over a year and haven't cracked it open. Which is shameful. It's such a good, griping, funny story.
I love the characters and the story is heartfelt and powerful.
I highly recommend it. Before seeing the movie, of course.
I'm putting together a gift package for friend's birthday that is coming soon. :)
I'll show you what I put in it, after I've completed and mailed it, but then it might not be terribly surprising for the friend who receives it though because I know she reads this. Hmmmmm. Decisions.
I've got a new pen pal too!! She lives in Michigan. Found her via the blog Crafted Love. Allison decided to open up the possibility of pen pals to her readers and she got such a huge response that she divided us all up so we could correspond with each other and with her. Pretty clever.
Anyway, we just started corresponding and I can already tell I'm going to like her. She's into art journaling and looks pretty darn good at it. Which is a God send because I just started art journaling. Emphasis on the start. I've got a few pages all prettified but haven't added any writing to them. I'm so bad at that.....
I could write my prayers and what I talk to God about. That could be a great start. :)
TTFN everyone!! Thanks for reading, drop a note, I'm still here!
Praying for you all!
