I think I’m going to be packing for the next 10 years!! I know most people hate packing, but I actually enjoy it. Or well, I’ve always enjoyed it the other million times I’ve moved. Not really the case this time. This feels more like I’m trying to SCALE A MOUNTAIN, rather than pack a house.
I think the difference is that this is the first time I’ve had to pack since my life has substantially changed. The boy largely works from home, so there’s a whole business to pack too. Plus, we inherited a small house full of things when his father passed away. There’s SO MUCH STUFF! And it’s all sentimental. I couldn’t possibly ask him to part with any of it yet because he feels it’s all he has left. I’m probably packing 3 times the amount of things we’ll end up keeping, which is incredibly difficult for me who likes to keep around only what I need. The things you do for love, I suppose.
1. Read 52 books this year
I’ve read a little bit during some of the sprints. I haven’t finished anything this week, so I’m still behind. Once this move is over, my brain is going to be putty, and I’ll have plenty of time to read.
2. Packing 30 minutes before work
This is working great! I’ll probably continue doing this until we’re out of here. It feels wonderful to get something done first thing in the morning and go off to work already feeling accomplished.
3. Twitter sprint each weekday
Checkity, check. I heart #teamsprinty! Come join us at 2 PM EST to write separately, together. We have a great time and get a lot done. A few weeks ago, I started a #teamsprinty pinboard on Pinterest. Check it out – there’s fun, inspiration, and lots of eye candy.
Also, I’d love to make this a collaborative pinboard, so just send me a message on Twitter or leave a comment here if you’re on Pinterest and would like to be able to pin to the #teamsprinty board!
4. Get healthy
Just puttering along here. Lots of water and better food choices. No exercise yet because I’m plain exhausted with packing. I have all the forms ready to sign up and prepay for the first year at my new gym, and I seriously can’t wait!! Putter, putter, but still moving.
I wish all of you a wonderful week! Check in with all the ROWers HERE.
