Procrastination….Posted: September 8, 2008
I am a total freak when it comes to moving…. I LOVE it! It like this weird little high for me! I love packing and unpacking, reorganizing, the excitment of moving day…. even the stress of it all. I love moving.
But for some reason I can not get it together to start packing. We close in10 days. Our POD will be here in a week and I haven’t packed the first box. I keep putting it off for some reason.
I think its this house and uncertainty of the move. I love this house! I have lived in I think 10 houses and this one is by far my favorite! This is our house, our first house…. it is hard to leave! I have wanted to keep our house looking “normal” as long as possible. (I keep telling Mark I could pack this house in 24 hours if we needed to… looks like I might be there if I don’t get it together!)It also hard packing up to move when don’t even know where you are going to live. (We are camping out with my parents for a while until we find a job and a place to live).
This is defiantly my hardest move. Moving away from friends and family is hard. We have so many memories here in Atlanta. I have been so nostalgic! I have been trying to savor every bit “normalcy” here. There is a verse I think in Matthew that talks about Mary after Jesus was born. It says, “but Mary pondered all these things in her heart.” That is what I have been doing…. maybe a little too much. I really need to be packing.
So instead of packing, I got this idea today. I started a family blog. I want to keep our family and friends as in the know as possible. I want you guys to get the front row seat to all God is doing in our family. We just wanted a place to put all the nitty gritty details of our day… you know stuff only family and your closest friends would care to read.
So here it is. Take a look.
Ok now really tomorrow I will start packing!
