Burning Bridges

I’m packing up my van today so I can have the rest of the weekend to help T and J with their move.  (when I’m not working, that is)

I have procrastinated as usual, so I am VERY unprepared, emotionally and logistically.  I have managed to accumulate more STUFF (can you believe it?!) while staying here and I’ve got to get most of it into my already crowded storage and figure out how the rest of this is going to work.  My plan is to keep one change of clothing in the van and daily necessity toiletries etc. then go to the storage every day to change things out.  It’s might be a pain in the behind.  We shall see.

I feel like I’m burning bridges because, as I procrastinated so much, I’m almost just shoving things in the van to be organized later.  I guess it’s not THAT bad but things aren’t as organized as I would like.  It makes me feel really scattered!  I must proceed anyway though.  I’m giving up on perfect…it’s too late.

Boy, it’s like there are two character defects at war within me.  Procrastination and perfectionism.  They are not compatible!!  Maybe I need to pick one or the other.  If I had to choose, perfectionism is the more productive defect to have….but I’m so LAZY!!!

Just needed to get that off my chest.  If you’re still reading my crazy thoughts, I thank you.  My mind is a terrible neighborhood to go into alone and I appreciate the company!  I need your help now to cross this bridge into livinginmyvan Part 2!!!!   🙂

    I hate moving! My technique is garbage bags. Eventually you reach a point where you say “screw it” and then throw all the loose junk into the bags. Well, have fun. I enjoy reading your work very much.

    Your perfectionist wrote that blog entry. Your perfectionist has a healthy tolerance/dismay of your procrastinator. Most importantly, you have your sense of humor. I fear/hope I can one day have adventures like you’re having.

      Adventures?! Yeah, that’s how I’ve been spinning it huh? 🙂 Today it felt like HELL. Tomorrow won’t be much better. God help me!
