|One box packed, but a lot more to go!
Even though classes don’t officially start until about two months from now, it feels like the next few weeks are going to be the most stressful ones of my summer. I have about three weeks until I move, and there’s so much to do!
My daughter has been staying with my parents for the last couple of weeks, and the plan was that she would be with them until I made the move to Georgia. Well, plans changed and it looks like I will be driving to get her this weekend. I already packed up her room, and she has most of her clothes with her, so I’m hoping she doesn’t get too upset that she won’t be able to play with any of her toys. I also have yet to find an affordable two-week camp or program for her to attend during my last two weeks here, so unless things change, she’ll be spending her time with me in the lab. The good news is that I submitted my letter of resignation from my job on Monday, so things are definitely starting to feel real now.
My original move-in date was the first of July, but if all goes well, it will now be around the third. The person who I will be renting from will be taking his boards around that time, so I agreed to extend everything by a few days. I also have yet to reserve a rental truck, but I plan on doing that tonight. Hopefully, there will still be some available. My plan is to pack a little each day, but outside of my daughter’s room, I literally only have one box packed. I never realized how much I hold on to things that I don’t need, so a lot of my packing has basically been throwing away things I have not touched in years. I feel like such a hoarder! Well, a very neat one, LOL.
I’m not going to lie though, when baby’s away, mommy will play, and I’ve been doing just that. This weekend I pretty much did absolutely nothing other than binge on Netflix. I’ve also been spending time with my little sister because once I move, there’s no telling when we’ll see each other again. Tomorrow night, we plan on going down to New Orleans and checking out a movie at a theatre that serves you dinner while you watch. I’m definitely looking forward to it. I’ve also been pretty busy typing up an interview that I’m sure everybody will love, but I have to get final approval before I can post it. It’s coming though, I promise!
I’m trying my best to maintain at least two blog posts a week, but don’t be alarmed if I post less frequently in the coming weeks. Once I make my move, I will pretty much have the whole month of July free, so I plan on writing a lot more then. I also plan on writing through orientation and the first week of classes, but I can’t promise much in terms of frequency after that. As always, thank you for reading and any and all prayers will be greatly appreciated as I make this transition within the next few weeks. Wishing everyone a fantastic week!
