Peach State says: Noooo! I’m Not Ready!

IMG_6067.JPG

Why is it, with everything already on my plate, I am suddenly handed another plate? I am going to need another cup of AWAKE…a strong one!

“Nooooo! I’m not Ready!”

Grocery shopping,
Haircuts for me and my youngest son,
Packing more boxes,
Sorting through and throwing away,
One last load of laundry to fold,
Fix dinner for one extra person tonight…

But wait…that’s just the normal stuff!

Follow-up with dentist after Oral Surgery a week ago,
Follow-up with Urgent Care doctor after an untimely slicing incident Sunday,
“Oh honey, don’t forget the cement guy is coming to tear up the driveway and pour a new one”,
“Hey Darling, why don’t you go pick out a new refrigerator that you want and have it delivered the day we move…”,

And if that doesn’t look fun…
“Hey Hon, could you sort through my shoes and pack the ones I don’t really wear…that would be great!”

The fun thing about packing up boxes is the fact that I have a slight excuse not to do much cleaning…the down side is the fact that I have had to open two sealed boxes already…1)to find the thermometer. “Yep, I have been running a low grade temp!” And 2) to find the razor hubby uses everyday…”OOOPS!” At least I knew right where to look! “I’m sooo organized…“HeHeHe!”

The sun is just beginning to rise through the trees and it’s almost time for the mass exodus. I will then begin the second part of my day. “How many parts will this day have?” I will wait for the arrival of the cement guy and then head out to my Urgent Care facility for that follow-up. I wonder if I can just stay gone most of the day. No grocery shopping though…I am not going to park across the road and then unload the car!

I am going to finish my coffee and get dressed…carefully. I don’t want to hit the bandage.

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: Slow Down…It’s Not Even Halloween!

IMG_6059.JPG

School has been in session for almost two months and today is the last official day of “Fall Break”. My son and I have been watching the store shelves unfold the to be expected seasonal creepiness…but mixed in with the fall foliage and bags of dental anxiety is the oh so early signs of Christmas! “Come On!!! How many times do I need to say the same thing?”

Slow Down…It’s Not Even Halloween!

I guess this bring on the next holiday mentality is hitting me a little harder this year due in part to the multiple taped cardboard boxes filling the rooms on the main floor of my home! I cannot decorate yet…not until we move into our new home sometime the end of October. “I am going through seasonal decoration withdrawals!” What’s a girl to do? Grin and bear it…grind my teeth till my jaws ache in overwhelming agony! “Oh wait! Been there done that…another story!”

Can anyone explain why retailers insist upon initiating the Christmas holiday before the end of Septmeber? Don’t we have enough in our proverbial plates without the continuous reminders of how many shopping day remain until Christmas? Have I even started shopping? “Well I did find a perfect gift for my Military Son…and yes I bought it!” I can only hope I can find the box marked VIP Christmas 2014 when I get to the new house!

Perhaps the progressive march of the calendar is moving faster than I am ready to admit. So many differences this year as we head into the seasonal decorator’s paradise. With the three older boys no longer living at home and the expectations of change virtually doubled (or quadrupled) by moving;
it is easy to feel like I am moving at a turtle’s pace compared to most.

Hold on while I enjoy my pity party…

Okay…time to move one! Lots to do today and I need to move the laundry. Oh how I wish someone would drop by and wiggle their nose or blink everything into neat little snug boxes so that I could focus on the house work! The good news is the fact that with boxes everywhere I don’t have to vacuum or dust. “Well…not as much!”

I must confess…I have, in all my pre-planning of room arrangements, been trying to figure out where the Christmas Tree would go. Crud! Does this mean I am one of those way-too-early Christmas people? I hope not! Otherwise the fall candles I have in another specially marked box will not be enjoyed as they should.

Enough said…I am off to see how much I can pack away!!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: Sounds Like A Plan!

But…you know what would make it an even better day…you could do the same thing. Wouldn’t that be fun?

“Sounds Like A Plan!” or maybe NOT!

I am house hunting today and I can’t imagine my day with an un medicated son! Great…now I need a new plan!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: Oh The Places We Can Go!

IMG_5933-0.JPG

The time has come to begin our downsizing! With the three older sons out and about…hubby has decided now is the time to buy another home!

“Oh The Places We Can Go!”

Trying to meld all of our wants and desires into one home has been an event-planners-nightmare BUT…I MAY HAVE ACTUALLY FOUND ONE TODAY!
The one pictured above is not it…seeings how a model is only available.

This will be an adventure for the both of us as this home will be built to our specsifications. “OOO…maybe I can get a screened porch!” Master on the main is a must as well as fireplace. Room for visiting children ( VISITING) and/ or entertaining is a must! They have plans including a basement that run a bit more than hubby wants but he may change his mind!

All in all a great day! Walking around empty1newly-constructed homes, with a dear friend playing body guard, was a lot of fun!

Back to reality:Now it is time to get ready for the youngest to get home from school and rush off to his doctor appointment. After that…maybe a trio to Walmar-Che’. [translation: southern term for Walmart]

I will keep you posted about the house hunting!

I better have time to swing by Starbucks on the way to the doctor.
