I'm over it already!

Yesterday I got quite a bit done around the house. Of course I didn't do everything on my list though. NO ONE could complete one of my lists, lol!! The truly sad thing is that the more I did, the more I saw that needed doing. *sigh* It's like a never-ending list!!!! I think about all we had to do to come over here, and all the stressors involved. I know it won't be that bad, so that's something, right?? Thomas took out three large trash bags (lawn & garden ones!) yesterday, and they were quite heavy. So that's three bags worth of junk that doesn't have to get packed or unpacked. WINNING!!!!! I've almost completed downstairs, and did Bella's room and playroom upstairs. Plus cleaning (vacuuming, dusting, bathrooms, etc). I still have to go through our bedroom, my craft room, closets, storage and bathrooms.

The moving rep was here the other day, and they are going to use all three days - July 4-6th. Because it's such a busy time of year for them, they might only be here part of the day on those days. Luckily we'll be in the hotel starting on the 5th, so we won't have to live around boxes the whole time. Just be living out of suitcases, lol!!! They said they can't ship liquids or anything in glass containers. But you CAN ship wine!!! I literally laughed out loud on that one!!! Only Italians! It will take 2-3 weeks to get our household goods - *fingers crossed* anyway!! The inn here has a kitchenette, so we will be bringing some cookware and foodstuffs on hand. I can't stomach eating fast food 24/7 for a week!!! We'll also be leaving Italy with over $9,000.00 in our checking account. We're rocking the savings thing!

I'm sorry in advance if I don't reply back to your comments right now! I soooo appreciate yours, they really make me smile and keep me going. I just don't have the time. Procrastination sucks, but what can you do???

It seems (so far) that things are going so much better this time. What a great start in cleaning out! Do you hire out?

Well you'll be back to normal in no time..... Probably longer than you want, but you'll do awesome.

We move in 11 months and I'm *already* preparing. Yeah, it'll take me that long and I still probably won't finish.

I'll be back on the 3rd, if it's not too late for your liquids! ;)

You're making headway! Glad you will have a kitchenette. That will make it much nicer. Won't be long now. :)

You're on a roll now. The end of the tunnel is in sight! :)

I procrastinate more than I used to. In fact, I never used to proscrastinate at all. Always wanted things done and out of the way. I guess things change when circumstances change. Good luck with the moving. Will be thinking of you. *hugs*
