W.O.W. I keep forgetting how exhausting it is to move. No matter how organized I thought I was (and I was) it's still taking a toll on my body. Not so much from the grunt work. It's everything. I don't feel stressed but my body is showing severe signs of stress. According to my doctor, eczema is stress related. I don't ever remember it being this bad. It keeps spreading. (apparently it's not contagious though, thank god!)
Anyway, I'm reading these signs carefully. Today is a light day of work. I'm in the process of trying to make arrangements to take Thursday and Friday off. Friday for sure! Many of my clients have already canceled for Friday anyway. Hopefully when I get home today, I will be on an extended weekend vacation.
Already that makes me feel so much better. A trip to IKEA is in order. At least one more stop at Target and Big Lots too. I'm looking on craigslist for things like end tables, tall narrow shelves and a couch. I'm so obsessed with it that I'm dreaming about it. Actually dreamed that Andi and Aileen were coming to town. Aileen was just passing through. Nice of her to stop by. We were all living at my cousin's house and we had to be creative with our space to make everyone fit. That was fun. [hi to cousin M, cousin E, and Auntie]
I've gotta say, I like having the option to be in another room. Hanging out in the livingroom rocks. I've actually used the kitchen every day and night. I bought cheap pots to make rice and eggs and stuff. Oh, and I bought a can opener. Yeah, that helps. Andi's bringing the good stuff.
I finally made use of the timer on my coffee maker. But I was so out-of-it that I forgot to add the coffee grounds. So I basically brewed hot water. Ha.
I'm making some kind of dent in all this chaos. I realized that I packed clothes on top of books and heavy items. So I had to open every single box, just to get my clothes put away. I got a few more hanging shelves from Ross. So far, so good.
Not so sure about the unmentionables though. We'll see how those little cloth drawers hold up with time.
OK, off to work ... let's hope this is my last day of the week!
