A slight reprieve...the house I'm moving into is not ready so I have an extra two weeks. I'll do it right this time...I won't panic...take it easy...easy as pie!

fallen or just sleeping?

"I said, tell me brave captain
Why are the wicked so strong
How do the Angels get to sleep
When the Devil leaves the porch light on?"  ~Tom Waits

the grass is always greener...

...or so they say. I am putting my hopes on that idiom. It's not just the move, it's all the other things in my life that seem to be crowding in right now. I'm drowning...
"When you're drowning, you don't say, 'I would be incredibly pleased if someone would have the foresight to notice me drowning and come and help me,' you just scream."  -John Lennon

I'm not the screaming type but don't think it hasn't crossed my mind a time or two...

another fine mess..

I don't do well with moving, and packing, and change
today I packed one half a box then ran away
to do something else. But they canceled school tomorrow 
due to inclement weather so now I'll work twice
as hard tomorrow to make up for my lollygagging today.

I was going to write about it all...I thought that might be cathartic
but it just feels like one more thing I have to do...
so instead here's a picture of the inside of my head!

moving on...

I'm moving soon. No not here but moving to a delightful little house in an older neighborhood close to the school where I teach. I think I'm going to be very happy in this house but the move itself is a tad overwhelming. But as moves usually go, I will wait until the last minute and then panic and start throwing things in boxes and somehow it will all work out.  I promised myself I would start early and be really organized this time but I don't think that's going to happen. Life tends to get in the way and I procrastinate and make excuses. I should at least make a list, isn't that what people do when they are getting ready to move? Even making a list seems overwhelming at the moment. 

Still...once I get moved there will be sunbeams and bluebirds...I just know it!
