Tedious and Stressful

because that is the REAL site. Thank you!

Those are the words I'd use to describe moving right now. A lot of the big stuff is done, but there're still enough loose ends that I have niggling little worries in the back of my mind all the time. And a lot of stupid little stuff is left, like cleaning out my nightstand of the entirely random, semi-useful, useless, very necessary, and "what is that doing in there?" stuff that somehow filled it up in a big ol' mess stew, and getting rid of extra miscellaneous crap (like new bottles of shampoo - dumb little stuff like that), that takes time, but I don't really feel like I'm actually DOING anything or getting anything accomplished.

*sigh* And it doesn't help that Pumpkin was wide awake for 1/2 hour or more at about 4:30 am... and WOULD. NOT. TAKE. A. NAP. today, even though she was so tired after our Gymboree music class that she was crying in her stroller on the way home. I eventually gave up and she's now watching a video just so I can get a short sanity break.

But I AM continuing to try to get stuff done, mostly by telling myself that hey, ANYTHING that I do get done is better than nothing.

So, with that inspiring ending, I'm off to do SOMETHING, even if it's just emptying out the dishwasher.

Just up-end that drawer into a box, ship it back, and sort it out when you get here. Oh wait, shipping. Crap, the mover's delight has been stolen from you.
