I won't go crazy, I won't go crazy, I won't.... :)

Planning and actually having a yard/garage sale is a lot of work in itself no matter what else is going on in your life.  Turn that sale into a moving sale and it's even more work because there is even  more stuff you're selling.  Add to that all the work that goes into packing to MOVE at the same time AND planning for a long trip to California that includes a Wedding that the entire family is in....  all while 4 months pregnant?  Yeah, I'm quickly reaching my breaking point.

The worst part? I can't even ask for much help because most of it is stuff that I have to do pretty much on my own.  Thankfully I have people here helping me by lifting and moving boxes around since that is yet another thing I can't do right now.

I honestly don't know if I've ever had this much piled on my plate at once.   This is just nuts.

Of course, along with being pregnant comes increased forgetfulness. You can imagine how helpful that has been during this whole process.  I've also been very clumsy the last couple weeks.

I'm also finding that I am verrrrry easily offended while I'm pregnant.  I think it would really help if people could hold back their criticism of my life, my belongings, and my personality until at least AFTER the move, preferably a few months after the baby is born.   Or never? You know, whatever... ;)

And for the record, the reason there is so much to pack is not because I'm a hoarder.  I almost NEVER buy anything.  I buy clothes, groceries, and household items as we need them and that is all.  The reason I have so many things is because I inherited ALL of my Mom's belongings 7 years ago as well and nearly a quarter of my Great-Grandmother's belongings 2 years ago.  I'd say 90% of my belongings were either inherited or given to me.  I'm not about to start throwing away my mom's handmade crafts, her recipes, or Babicka's paintings and kitchen containers so until I go, the stuff stays with me.  That's just the way it is.  That is all I have left of the two most important women in my life.

Finding Joy in the Winter Months

For our family, this time of year is full of two things: celebrations and a slightly overwhelming sense of cabin fever. Both Gage and I cel...
