A Moment of Silence Please

… for I am packing the sewing room today.

SIX DAYS people! And 3 of those are working days. And I STILL have a crap-ton of … well … CRAP to pack. OMG to the nth degree.

And can I pack into the wee hours tonight? NO! The marketing department has a command performance at the CEO's house for a "casual" dinner party. It will be fun, by why-oh-why couldn't this be NEXT weekend? I'll have to switch gears around 4:30 to get ready and get to the store for some sort of hostess gift before I head out.

I should've taken all of next week off, and I may just try to squeeze in at least half a day off on Wednesday. But my plate is pretty full there too. (Literally, OMG - let's not even talk about ALL THE FREE FOOD brought in last week.)

On the bright side, we've finally found another me so my workload will lighten somewhat in about a month and I may actually have energy left for sewing again. She's great (much better than the guy who was initially hired and then backed out — everything happens for a reason), and I think we're going to be good friends as well as coworkers. Can't wait!

Back to the boxes.

It's okay...you will get it done! When you are off with no other responsibilities, you will get more packing done! And the way I made it through packing my sewing stuff was to acknowledge that it would be going somewhere new and better! Hang in there and enjoy the party tonight!

Packing is one of the scariest things there is! But packing and sorting takes it to a whole new level of horror.

I am packing up a one bedroom flat, and I am really struggling so you do have my greatest sympathy. It will be great to start your new life in your new home though. Good luck next week I do hope that everything goes well.

Packing's the pits, but I think unpacking is worse. But I'm so excited for you. Glad you will have some help at work too! You know that we'll want pictures of the moving progress...even way after the fact is fine.

Moving so sucks but it almost always gets you to a better place. Will there be a new dedicated sewing room? You probably said as much but I forget. Have a great time at the party tonight!

Sending you good packing vibes! I am getting my condo appraised on Wednesday for a re-fi and was out of town all weekend and tomorrow is the boyfriend's birthday. So I have to clean the entire thing tonight. And I am not a neat or tidy person. Eep! We'll both be working like mad women tonight!

Weds - getting down to crunch. Hope your packing is going well and the move is smooth and fabulous. The best move ever.
