What Keeps You Going?
Last night in Calgary for the summah!!!!!! I’ve been up since 3am because my brain is going bazonkers + there’s too much to do before we leave Alberta!!!!
I’ve been packing up this apartment for what seems like forevah. Boy, we really nestled ourselves into this place! Has it only been three months??? Insanity!!! Jeff + I filled this tiny, cute apartment with more stuff than all get out!!! I allow myself to believe that we have so much stuff because there’s two of us. NAW!!!! Who am I kidding?! It’s because we’re PACK RATS, y’all!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’ve been pretty systematic + anal about the whole packing process. I like to contain the mess – it’s probably a good thing that Jeff is at work + not helping me. Jeff is a spreader outer (which drives me up the wall), while I like to make specific piles. Oh, by the way tonight is his last day of shooting on “Hell on Wheels” Season 2!!!! Huzzah!!!! Labeled + ready to go, sir!!!!
If the room looks like a smoky, mysterious high priest’s temple that’s because I was lighting some incense…man. I found a dollar store in Calgary that sells Nag Champa verrrry cheap. No Angeleno hipster prices here!!!!
I spent a lot of my time spinning in circles. When my friend Kim was at work on a stressful, overwhelming day I caught her spinning + uttering tiny almost inaudible little (what sounded to me) chimpanzee noises. Oooo eee!!!!
I found myself muttering a little chimpanzee throughout the day while sorting throught the piles, trying not to pull my hair out. It’s been a challenge packing a tiny apartment that we’ve only been subletting for three months. I couldn’t imagine doing this with kids running around. Bravo, moms, bravooo!!! But, mind you – this isn’t packing for normal people. This is packing for hoarders. Maybe I should write a book, “Hoarder Packing for Dummies”. Hmmmm, I might be on to something….
GAAAAAAAH!!!!! SABOTEUR!!!!!!!! CURSES!!!!!!!
But what has really kept my spirits up was taking little breaks + watching “Adventure Time” on iTunes!!!!
My life has never been the same! I don’t have a TV, but I discovered it on Cartoon Network when I was put up in a hotel for work. Finn the swashbuckling boy? Jake his magic stretchable dog? Lumpy Space Princess? Marceline the Vampire Queen? Beat boxing??? This is the most inventive + hilarious cartoon series I’ve seen in a loooooong time. Here’s a couple tidbits for y’all to become hooked!
Obsessed! What helps keep you going?
