I'm Finally Home!...

Tuesday, March 09, 2010

I'm usually pretty organized, or at least before the FMS I used to be LOL... but even without that, there's always that last minute stuff, with DH hovering and saying HURRY HURRY... well. LOL

Maybe that's why unpacking after a move feels kind of like Christmas. Maybe it's just opening the boxes that were thrown together at the last... and not having a clue what's in them! LOL

There's still so much to do... and with my FMS is acting up, it's hard to even THINK. LOL

The landlord lost the key to the mailbox so we need a new mailbox. Once that's done, I need to notify my doctors, the social worker, my attorney, my FAMILY... not necessarily in that order! LOL

We have to make arrangements for a truck next weekend to get the rest of our things from storage at DH's sister's.

Then we have to move the refrigerator to make room for the washer and dryer the landlord is supposed to bring over.

I don't have a step stool, so DH has to clean the kitchen cupboards out before I can finish filling them. (Honey dew this, honey dew that LOL Poor fellow, he has to go to work too!)

The floors are dirty. Not only do I need to clean them, but they are extremely cold: there are no rugs or carpets-- which is probably a good thing for now, because there are wood shavings all over from where the landlord put in a new front door and didn't clean up after... can you imagine trying to get that off a carpet? No thank you! LOL

...and, of course, we found out last night that the bedroom door won't even close, the knob shifted when they attached it and it sticks out the side almost half an inch! LOL

The landlord didn't paint either, but I am NOT doing that for him! LOL Unless... hm. I wonder how much he'd take off the rent if we did? I mean, there is that "honey dew..." LOL I think DH would flip! LOL

In case you can't tell, this isn't the Ritz-- but for right now, it's OURS! And I LOVE it!

Just one thought though.

That HURRY HURRY stuff... it not only leaves us exhausted and frazzled, it causes more mistakes that lead to more on that "honey dew" list, because when we do things in a hurry, things break, mistakes are more drastic, we skip over the basic common sense stuff because we're too busy "putting out fires", we make more work for ourselves later-- and what we do doesn't seem to last.

Kind of like this whole weight-loss, health-building thing. A good foundation takes time to build. A clean and healthy home-- or business-- or relationship-- or lifestyle-- takes time to put together... and time for maintenance too.

I want a better life for myself and those I love, and I want it to really last.

I plan on taking the time to do it right this time around...

    My mom used to have a saying

    "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get"

    I don't know where the saying originated, but sure seems to hit the nail on the head! Thanks to Helen for reminding me of it.

    Glad you are (or got) moved into your new home sweet home.

    Congratulations on being in your new home. Sounds like a lot still going on...take one thing at a time, one day at a time and you will soon have it all where you want it...or semi-close at least. I know that the more I hurry the further behind I get. Best of luck to you on getting everything straightened out.
    Blessings and hugs,
