1. Packing - We close on our new home in 8 days. Approximately 10% of the basement is packed. Booze is not safely ready to travel, Christmas decorations are stored precariously, and I have no idea what may be stored behind a dresser that hasn't moved since we got here. The only clothing I have packed is the t-shirts I'm making into a t-shirt quilt. Oh crap, I need to figure out how to pack craft supplies. And the kitchen - I haven't even begun - as in, I don't even have paper to wrap the breakables in.
2. Dad - I have not actually seen my dad in two weeks. I feel awful, but #1 needs to come first right now, and I know he understands. I just don't have two hours every night to spend on the road driving home. I call almost everyday, and he sounds good. I'm comforting myself that we'll see him Saturday and Sunday this weekend, and are having a sleepover that will likely involve old timey movies.
3. Friends - Yeah... I text them. That's about all I've got. Oh, and I did go see one friend on Tuesday night, but I unceremoniously made her buy Chinese food b/c I had been working on #1 and it was 8pm and I hadn't eaten. Other than that, it's been too long. But #1 and #2 seem to come before friends. This damn house better be worth it.
4. Work - oh for the love, I'm not even going to bore you with this. It's a mess, it is stressful, and I am seriously behind in just about everything on my list. I needed to take Tuesday off for my sanity, but am afraid it will be Friday before I am caught back up.
Anyway - today (the day you're reading this at least) is Thursday. I am going to leave work before 6pm (please interweb people, hold me to this), finish the chair I am recovering, and catch-up on the blog world. Because I obviously need to blog myself (I'm only 4 days behind on the challenge) and my Bloglovin currently has 854 unread posts. Now, because I can't end a post without any entertainment or you people won't come back - check this out:
