Accomplished and Grateful

I promise this whole moving experience won't take up every.single. post, but it's pretty much all my life revolves around right now so.... here's another little tidbit.

First of all, I seriously don't know what I'd do without my family. I'd probably be checking myself into a mental hospital today. They came over yesterday and my mum just completely took charge and kicked things into gear when I just couldn't seem to do it. She packed up my ENTIRE kitchen. EVERYTHING! Granted, I'm now drinking out of plastic cups and don't have my favorite sauce pan to eat my staples (mac & cheese and spaghetti) but I'll survive. And that's a HUGE weight off of my shoulders. LOVE. My brother, Stephen, forced me to get out in that shed of ours and face stuff that I really wasn't into facing. But now that I'm done with that... phewww. All I really have left to do now is:
price everything for the yard sale
put yard sale signs out
put an add in the paper
pack away all of Trey's clothes and most of mine except for what I'll wear
go through one more closet
OH YEAH... and sell the house!
For sale sign up: check. Flyers out with the sign: check. House listed on MLS: check. Doing an amazing big girl job at keeping it clean: check. All I can do now is pray really!!
Now that all this has been done, it's freed my mind up to think about the things I was really really excited over before all this: Going to Massachusetts for a long weekend at the end of the month for a craaazzzzaayyy family reunion, flying home and driving to Columbus the next day for Trey's graduation festivities (yayyyyyy), and the day after WE come home from that going to pick up Daisy!!! Finally :) It's also freed my schedule up, so on today's agenda ~ searching for the perfect formal dress. The mall opens up at 1:30. I'll be there at 1:29 ready to search through every single dress that JC Penney, Belk, Dillard's or Sears may have. I'm pretty optimistic, but if they have nothing, then I'll resort to buying online. that makes me nervous though. Also, I CANNOT wait to get back into the gym Monday after work. I honestly haven't been in about 2 weeks.. probably more actually. Can't Wait.
