As you all know moving sucks. It is the epitome of crap times. So after a wonderful weekend I am packing my brains out to get ready to load up a Uhaul and move all my stuff to my parent's house in Pinehurst. My Dad is coming tomorrow to pick up everything so I absolutely have to have everything ready by the time he arrives. It would be great if I could have everything ready by tonight. That is the goal, but not a concrete goal really. The concrete goal is by the time he and my little sister arrive tomorrow.
Stupid moving! WHY do I have so much stuff?!?!WHY do I feel the need to keep it all? There are so many people out there that get by with so much less. They not only get by but also succeed and excel in life! Why can't I be one of those simplestic people. Who live in super modern homes with nothing but a couch and a tv that is secretly hidden in the wall and one fancy vase with flowers in it??? Instead I am the daughter of artists, who have taught me to surround myself with things that I love and that make me smile. THUS I have a billion pots, books and various other nostalgic stuff. I am not blaming them, I am just complaining that I have a bunch of stuff to move. Who doesn't complain at moving time? Weirdos that is who.
So, I have to get back to the laundry mat to pic up my laundry then home again to clean/pack all my stuff. Luckily all this packing has kept me busy enough to not be sad about moving and leaving all of these people I have come to know and love to be around. People have been saying and sending me the nicest things about how they will miss me and I am always welcome and I nearly start to tear up and then I remember I need to go vacuum the rugs which are covered in cat hair and the tears go away and I save them for another day. But I do appreciate all of the thoughts and kindness that people have given me and I will miss Virginia! I will miss all of the friends I made here and unique people who have touched my life.
OK back to packing for real now, no more procrastinating. Then in TWO days to the BEACH with my best pals!
