What's keeping me from getting the packing done these days...

Well, besides procrastination plain and simple--I've been finding so many things to occupy or divide my attention lately.
  • Mallworld on Facebook. Seriously, it's not bad enough that I have a bad shopping habit, now I'm on this thing twenty times a day making sure my shop is full and ready for customers.
  • Playing and re-playing Jack Jack Attack for my boy's sixty times a day. It is pretty cute and it's hard for me to not sit there and enjoy it with them.
  • Shopping. It seems like everyday there is something I need to run to the store for. Milk, posterboard for some school project, packing boxes that I'm not doing too good at filling up, packing tape. Of course, what should be a quick twenty minute jaunt to the market usually ends up taking an hour and a half to two hours.

And then, when I'm actually in the moment, ready to fill up an empty box--I look around the room and become overwhelmed by all the stuff. Like a deer caught in the headlights, I don't know which way to go.

Less than two weeks to D-day and I've still got a lot to do. I think Jon needs to confiscate the computer along with my debit card and then maybe I'll get something done. (Just don't tell him that!)

I have to say, I'm really glad I don't play any FB games. I would be addicted!

Some times you just need a break from the overwhelming tasks! Good luck!

Mallworld? Crap. Now I'm going to have to start playing that.

I had to run to the store almost every day this week? What is up with that? Walmart 3 times, grocery store 2 times, Target once - why can't one store have everything I need, and why can't my brain remember everything I need?
