So this is what it feels like to lose your mind...

I am so serious when I say today has been ultra stressful. Lorenzo went to go visit some family that he has living not too far from here. I chose to stay back because I've got so much to do to get ready for the movers. However, I knew that Lorenzo needed to visit these family members before we left because we've been here almost a year and he hasn't gone.

I love Felix -- I really do but it's really hard to pack with a baby running behind every one of your steps and than crying whenever he bumps his head, not to mention the meals and naps that I had to tend to as well. All part in raising a baby, I totally understand, just maybe today wasn't the day to have Lorenzo flea the nest for a day of pleasure.

Got our bags packed for the plane and alot of stuff disassembled for the movers and also had someone come over and gather the stuff they had stored in our garage. An overall successful day but I'm pooped and my back is killing me. I have this sickness when it comes to packing that I need to take EVERYTHING with us...I just can't leave some stuff behind. When I really went through the clothes I had packed for myself and out of the 9 shirts and 6 pairs of pants/skirts I took out just one of each...I tried.

You've really just got to take this kind of stuff one day at a time. I know everything will work out in the end but I want to make it go as smooth as possible. I also realize that I can't control everything but that's hard to let go because I feel like I have to have a firm grasp on everything around me.

So I'm done for the day -- It's 7:30pm and I'm de-stressing. I have an apple pie in the oven and I'm going to savor it when it's done!!! Lorenzo is on his way home and soon Felix will be heading to bed and I'm just going to take a nice relaxing shower.

I will let you know how tomorrow goes after the movers are out of here -- I know I'm going to be surrounded by cardboard but at least I'll have the laptop to keep me sane and Felix to keep me entertained!!!


  1. You should try the apple pie with vanilla ice cream. I'm sure that will help you de-stress. Hope things get better for you soon :)

  2. Sounds like you're a member of the 'Control Freak Society' and you should be proud. Sometimes it pays off being in control of your surroundings and over packing can be a godsend if something happens and you're glad you did. It is better to be prepared then under-prepared.

    Enjoy your apple pie and shower. I hope the move goes well tomorrow.

  3. I understand completely about the kids and the packing.. I always over pack. I don't know why I will end up packing things that I won't even wear! It is a hard adjustment to make and I am still working on it! I hope the move goes smoothly for you tomorrow!
