Whenever I am truly overwhelmed with something, I tend to avoid it as much as possible. Instead, I invent projects for myself that absolutely must be done right now. You know, the kind of things that really could wait years to be done and nobody would notice. I suppose it's my way of feeling productive, yet not being productive at all.
This weekend, in an effort to work on move preparation I:
♥ Designed a new header for my photography blog. (Thanks Rae, for the inspiration!)
♥ Figured out how to have a cool font on my blog post titles.
♥ Helped Joel with a few projects that he could easily have done by himself.
♥ Weeded my front lawn.
♥ Watched the opera Hansel and Gretel with my girls.
♥ Read Spires of Stone by Annette Lyon and Extras by Scott Westerfeld.
♥ Designed a new header for my mom's blog.
♥ Designed a new header for Jill's blog, which I have owed her for a very long time.
♥ Did ten loads of laundry, and cut a deal with Joel that stipulates that he fold all ten loads for me.
♥ Caught up on a lot of emails that I have been ignoring the past month.
♥ Cleaned out the toys and clothes in Sophia's room, and filled four boxes with items to be sold at a future garage sale.
♥ Added a bunch of photos to my photography blog, and took down a bunch more.
♥ Put all 500+ CD's that we own into an empty dresser, so that the CD holder thingies can also be sold in aforementioned garage sale.
♥ Went through my clothing and filled one box with clothes I will never wear again.
♥ Made several lists of things that should be done soon.
♥ Read and commented on a bunch of blogs.
♥ Wrote blogs for the rest of this week and set them to post.
There. I accomplished a little bit of move prep, and a whole lot of nothing.
And that's something.
