daily snippet

i don't want to do it.

i don't want to do it.  

i don't want to do it

...and i know i'm gonna have to get over myself real soon cause all the boxes need unpacking and linens need to wash and all storage studio items need permanent places to live and i am only one person and i feel i need to clone myself to get it all done and i know that i can't and despite it i will get it done but.....i don't want to do it.

so i sit at my desk putting off the doing and answering emails and recording receipts and dreaming of  a time away where nothing needs to be unpacked or sorted thru or figured out, where i can walk along the beach in the water watching as it laps at my feet, and read on the porch or dance to happy music with no one watching { just maybe the dog } and plop into a chair exhausted and smiling at the little dance party i threw for myself.

but girl, you know you must get it done because you also don't want to live with the boxes.

that's the thing with moving isn't it....you pack just to unpack and have to find new homes for everything....again. i have decided { yeh, take that! } that no matter what, i won't be packing next time or moving our stuff.  all that sh*take stuff i don't like to do that helps me reach to a more tired frustrated space will be hired out the next time and the time after that and the time after that.....  

yeh.  that sounds about right.  and if i can hire someone to unpack it all as well while i sit licking a salt & straw waffle cone piled high with almond brittle & salted ganache ice cream { my new favourit-est thing to eat...oh the poundage my hips will see } and show them where all things must now live ....yes, that too.  why did i let him convince me we should move ourselves?  dunno.  but enough is enough.

and i still don't want to do it.

so i'm just gonna begin.  darn it!
