Do you watch The Closer? It’s a series on TNT about Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson who may be my favorite character on TV. She’s a strong vulnerable successful women who does her job and does it well even though she doesn’t always have it all together. Sometimes she seeks comfort in junk food and the scenes where’s she’s savoring a cookie or debating if she should open that candy bar from her desk drawer are priceless.
I’ve had many of those scenes today, downing handfuls of chocolate chips and combos. Although I’m not the Closer… I’m the Packer. I’ve been packing, boxing, cleaning and lugging for a straight 48 hours now. It’s midnight and the poor husband is still downstairs clearing out the garage. I’m not sure we realized how hard it would be to separate what can go in storage for 3 months and what needs to come with us to our temporary apartment.
BUT I’m happy to report MOST of our long term storage stuff is in the POD. Friday you may remember this shot as the POD was just delivered.
Well here it is today. I took the picture from the same spot mind you. :)
So right now I’m up too late and I have work tomorrow. It’s my only work day for the week and my last of part time. As of now this is what the rest of the week looks like..
- Monday: Work
- Tuesday: Move remaining belongings into the apartment – clean the house for new owner
- Wednesday: CLOSE ON THE HOUSE! (keep fingers crossed everything works out!)
- Thursday: Unpack and RELAX in the apartment.
- Friday: Do something just for me. I’ve decided on a trip to the salon. I have 2 inch roots and my eye brows are out of control! :)
I’m looking forward to starting up a new routine once we get settled. My eating has gotten a bit crazy these last few days and I’m starting to feel bleh. I miss my kitchen, my fresh veggies and my own cooking!! I can’t wait to hit a local farm stand once we are in the apartment!!
On the workout front I’m doing a little better. I did miss my 5 mile run today BUT I got up early yesterday for a weight training session and did a bit of cardio.
Right now I’ve got to run but not without announcing the winners of the book giveaway! Congrats Mrs. Mommy (WW set) and Annette (low carb set.) You guys didn’t leave blog address so just let me know if you have one. I hope to get the books in the mail on Tuesday.
Oh! One more thing! We drove by the new house today to discover this…
