Just Keep Packing

It's Labor Day weekend, you know the last celebration of summer. You go the the lake, deer lease, camp out, swimming pool or whatever your family enjoys doing. My family and I, well I keep hearing the voice of Ellen DeGeneres from Finding Nemo saying "Just keep packing, just keep packing, just keep packing..........". I think I am almost finished but then I remember the coat closet, the building outside, the storage under the window seat and on it goes. Soon it will be finished.

Everything has happened so quickly, that I feel as if I am spending more time being reactive instead of pro-active. Just when I think I have a plan, things change and I need another one. I have drawn kitchen layouts on graph paper, I have measured closets and openings and walls trying to figure out where everything will go and yet it feels we aren't much farther in the process than when we first looked at the house.

The current plan is get the bedrooms painted and new carpet in those areas so we can have some measure of order. Everything else will be done in order of necessity after we are in the house. I just keep reminding myself that this is suppose to be fun!

I hear Ellen again, "just keep packing", so it is time to go. The next time I check in I hope to have a house tour of the new place. You are going to think we are crazy!
