Unpacking Stinks!!

As you all know, a few weeks back, I relocated from my house to another house that was bigger, a mere 1/4 mile from Mimi. Now I have been slowly begun the unpacking. I want to do it right and make sure everything is organized -- A place for everything and everything in its place. This is all well and good in theory, but the truth of the matter is that it is a time consuming process. And as such, with a 3 and 5 year old who are difficult to convince that fresh air and our semi-fenced in backyard is a great way to spend some time without me watching them all afternoon, little gets done around here.

Take the office for example. I did indeed get 3 boxes unpacked. However, it's all over the floor in the office, because I want it to be organized. And in order for that it had to be all out of the box. And now that it is, it's a mess, and I only have another 2 hours before I get to get Emily off the bus....*sigh* and here' comes Kaitlyn, wanting something else from me......Ok I'm back..

And then there is laundry. I know I have mentioned my hated of folding laundry, how I let it pile up....I am still doing it...It's all over the laundry room and all over my bedroom. I also need to switch out the clothes Emily has outgrown to the "save for Kaitlyn" box, and transfer all the summer clothes and baby clothes for Charity that Kaity has outgrown. It take a long time to do all this when you don't have the chance to focus.....I know I should call friends to ask to babysit, but I did that so much already, I feel like I am being unfair and becoming a nuisance to them....

And so, I procrastinate some more and write a blog entry! LOL

ok, now that I've vented about how much this sucks, I am going to do something -- Clean and organize the office!!

Cissa~You know this is the part where I am not jealous of you getting to move. Moving is a bitch. A big one. Next week when I am feeling less shitty I will take the girls so you can get some shit done. I promised Em a chicken nugget picnic long ago that we have yet to have.

Oh. do we understand> we don't have the problem with children but packing up the house ( the step we are on) is a real pain. You want to organize the boxes so that when we get to your step we will have it easier. But there is always an item that doesn't fit or gets left out. So now we have a doesn't fit-leftout box. It will never end.

I am following Dr John and he just said what I was going to say. On top of trying to organize before we leave I am thinking that our house is not going to sell and we will be moving in my daughters side of the duplex and storing our stuff in the basement. We will do this so we can rent the other side to help on the payments.
