I seriously think my junk multiplies with each box I pack.  Layer upon layer of "stuff" from over 10 years of living in this house.  My "I'll do/sort/throw it away it later" mentality is not serving me well now that I have to sort through all this stuff.  Blech.

Can a person change from a clutterbug (me) to someone who immediately deals with accumulation of junk?  I feel like I'm always in a rush and always putting off things until later.  I'll do those dishes later, I'll throw away that junk mail later, I'll sort through the boys toys later...and then when later comes there's always something else to be done.  Exhaustion...that's what I'm feeling!  Hehe.

Surely there's some site/blog/group out there for people like me?  If so, I'd love to know about it.

I Am Here

Yes, I am alive.  Things have been so hectic.  What kind of blog post do you write after over a month?!  So much to talk about, I've written hundreds of posts in my head over the last few weeks, just never found the time to sit down and type them out.

I feel like I've been hit by wave over wave of change and challenges.  Not sure when it's safe to come up for air.  Seems like things just keep coming.  It'd be easy to just do a bullet point list of the craziness, but each bullet would probably take it's own post to explain!

  • We're buying a new house and close next week
  • Corbin changed programs at school so now he's gone 4.5 hours each day :(
  • We went on a quick vacation to the grandparents house last week
  • I'm packing for our move!  We have a lot of junk.
  • My grandmother is coming to live with us in our new house
  • In preparation for her moving, she's coming to visit and see the new house on Wednesday
  • Holidays...
  • And life's general craziness besides all the above

Overwhelmed is my current state of mind - so pray for my sanity please!
