My View

This is my view right now. I'm buried in boxes!  The movers come tomorrow with the truck to get all he boxes they packed. It is getting tiresome already. And today is the last day for me to use the washer and dryer so I'm having a laundry fest.

I'm on my phone as the computer us packed so bear with me!!

Can we say "Why do these things happen when we move?"  Oh yes, the wonderful unexpected stress!

My daughter dislocated her knee yesterday doing cartwheels on the trampoline.  She landed on it wrong and right out of place it went.  I thought "Oh it will just hurt for a while and be sore but fine." -Because I have a "trick knee" and I thought it was just like that. In and out and sore but ok... Nope, it started swelling to the size of a large grapefruit.... and this is large on a tiny 14 year old girl with not an ounce of extra pounds on her! So to the ER we went...  she has damaged the tissue around it!  She is in a brace and on crutches for 4-6 weeks and I have to take her back to the Ortho. Doctor next week and then as soon as we get to Georgia for either physical therapy or God knows what if it doesn't seem to be healing the right way!  Luckily she is not in much constant pain, they gave her Tylenol with codeine and Motrin. She INSISTED on going to school today, the only child in the world who LOVES school and can not miss a day under any circumstances...according to her. The doctor said let her if she wants! Crazy child of mine!

I am trying to be calm!  But inside I am a mess!! Ugh!  I pray nothing else happens before we move! I should have known though.... something always goes awry at the best times!♥

I don't think I have ever mentioned it before but, I can procrastinate! I'm kind of a "Pro"crastinator! Uh!  I do it for a few reasons, which don't really make all that much sense, but to me they do somehow!  If I put things off, then I am not presently worrying about them!  Funny huh, I like to worry last minute!  I can relax now, and just have to hustle for a day or two instead of drawing it out. I think this may come from my learned ability to block things out.  I have gained this talent though out the years as a protective mechanism.  But it can bite me in the butt sometimes....

So the things I NEED to do today:

1) Finish cleaning the camper.  We are staying in it until we find a home in Georgia.  It is not like actually "camping", it's like a mini home.  Just crowded!

2) Start packing the camper with the things we will need while we are not in a house. Things we don't want the movers to pack. Like clothes and ipad and stuff.

3) Take deep breaths and try not to procrastinate these few simple things I have set out for myself to do today!! --Like I am right now while writing this post!!

I crack myself up!

My home for the next few weeks! Eek!!

Snuggle Saturday

Today they are asking us to pick one historical figure you would like to have dinner with!  I LOVE this question!  It was so easy for me: Virginia Woolf!

If you know her story at all by reading her words or even watching The Hours, you know she was a remarkable woman.  A woman who was a literary genius and a woman who suffered with mental illness in a time when there were few answers or little if any real help. I relate to her struggle with mental illness. She did take her own life, which I am not condoning in any way shape or form. I am alluding to her deep moving words that I can so relate to. Her deep desire to live life without pain and to have others be able to live their lives to the fullest. Her ability to take the plight, if you will, of the ordinary woman of her time and put it to paper making her real and making her emotions felt by the reader. To me she was a remarkable woman who I would love to chat with.

These were her last written words.

I hope I have not offended anyone.  I have just struggled with mental illness, most of my entire life and I find an understanding in her words. I find a place of being understood. Does that make sense?

Fridays Letters

Dear Time, I wish you would slow down just a tiny bit as this move is coming so fast and I am getting a bit stressy about it!  I have SO many things to do and it becomes a bit overwhelming at times!!

Dear California, mourning is starting!  I will miss you SO much.  It really is going to hurt to leave!  You have been a best friend to me with your sunny mornings and days!  San Diego has been the best city EVER to live in and I miss you before I am even gone!

Dear Georgia, Please don't let me down!  I want to like you, to love you, but it is kinda scary moving from such a beauty of a place.  I want you to be warm and welcoming and beautiful and kind to my family.

Dear Family, This could be our last move for quite a while!  I know it is a bundle of emotions thinking about moving.  But we will find new adventures and friends and be near family.  Lets do this together! ♥ you so much!

This weeks themes: Growing, Making, Worrying, Dancing, Laughing!

Growing:  Restless!  I am getting restless with this move coming to a quick start in less than 2 weeks!  Where has time gone?  Why does it move so fast sometimes and so incredibly slow others??  

Making: Lists!  I have a thousand lists of everything I need to do to move. Packing, buying, trashing, donating, un-registering for, re-registering for....and it goes on.........

Worrying:  About everything!  What isn't there to worry about when you are moving?  But mostly I am worrying for my kids as we move, again... Being a military kid is hard!  You have to go with your family and start all over again, whether you want to or not! :(  It makes me sad for them, even though I know they are well adjusted and make friends easily!  My heart breaks for their heart breaks on moving. It could get teary really soon!

Dancing:  Happy dance!  I love to move to a new house!  Yes, I do! I love to decorate and buy and organize and rearrange and make things pretty!  It is exciting to me to get there and find a great place to live!

Laughing:  At my baby Niece who I will get to meet very soon!  As soon as we step off the plane in Atlanta! It's gonna be so sweet to see my daughter and her growing up and being around each other!  Nothing sweeter!
