I am moving in 2 days. I am being pulled in 30 different directions. Being told I need to see this person and that person and yet, I am the one moving and packing and trying to fit my life into 6 suitcases. There are a handful of people I would love to see before I leave. But unless these people just show up at my house, I doubt it will happen. I have listed several different events that people can come to and see me.
I have made a list of things I have to do before leaving. And I don't think I should be made to feel bad about not being able to fit other things in. I am also sharing this time with someone on vacation, so I have to do what he wants as well.
My brain, my body, my soul, can not take this non-stop, always on the go business. I need to stop and rest and melt into a chair and watch mind numbing TV. Sorry if that should not be on a list of things to do. But I feel like I'm getting sick, and that's just how it's going to be.
And why does it have to be me that does the calling? Can people not pick up a phone and call me. I hate calling people. It gives me wicked ajida.

On my list of things I need to do:

See Laura/Josh/Aedan
Lunch with Grandma and Cousin
Take Jeremy to get tattooed
Wash Jeep
Sell Jeep at Carmax
Give James and his gf Tooth Bling
Wash Hair
Go to Whitney's (bc her car is non-functioning)
Make my Jeep stop smelling awful
Clean dining room
Pack boxes to mail
Mail Boxes
Order Printer to be shipped to Boston
Find a place to put shoes I love in my suitcases that are already full
Go through suitcases and figure out what I don't need to bring
Last going away thing at the Little Cave in Highland Park on Wednesday
Wash clothes

And these all need to be completed tonight and tomorrow.

But, tomorrow consists of:
Leaving at 10am to have lunch with Grandma at 11am
Jeremy has a tattoo appt at 1pm
who knows how long that will take. I am also getting tattooed.
Come home and get ready for last night in town shin dig.

UGH.... I am so frustrated right now.

AND on top the things I need to do, I would love to do these things:
See Danielle
Have lunch with Jennifer
Hang out with Whitney
Hang out with Michelle
Post the pictures from today's adventures

sewing machine!

As you know, I'm moving to Boston Feb 26th. Since I'm flying there, I wont be able to bring a lot of treasured items, such as my printer, artwork, sewing machine, etc. So, I've been looking on craigslist for free sewing machines and printers in the Boston area.

Well, I happened upon an amazing find. A FREE 1940's Singer Sewing machine. It comes in a cabinet and came with a bench. After a week of emailing back and forth with the woman, I had my friend in Boston, go pick it up for me. The picture she had sent me, did not do it justice. This beautiful machine is amazing. Jeremy got it home and without even saying anything about it, he cleaned and polished it.

I'm so excited to get to my new home and use it. I'll post pictures when I get there!
