Dazed and Confused

I have been in such a daze these past few days. I haven't yet heard back from the people I submitted my application to for the duplex. I feel pretty certain that I have it but still, until I hear from them, it's not a done deal. It's a loose end that I very much need to have tied.

Even the mood ring on my google tool bar is Gray, indicating that my mood is anxious, ill at ease, strained. How does my google mood ring know this? That's sort of scary to think that Google is tracing my steps to know how I'm feeling......

Anyway, I stood up an appointment today to show a property. That is the very very first time I have been so distracted that I forgot an appointment. I am so embarrassed.

I'm excited about my new home but at the same time I'm very very distracted. It's hard for me to get up in the morning, I just want to sleep. I honestly believe I am feeling very overwhelmed. I look at all my things and I don't even know where to begin packing.

I have been collecting boxes for my niece because she has wanted to move. She changed her mind, so now I have boxes. I still need more.

I wish my sister were here, it would help me. I have friends that have offered to help, but I need my sister.

I'll be ok. I'm just waiting to hear for sure that I have a place to live. And then I have to figure out how much I can afford to spend getting there.

I'd be edgy too about the new place until it was definite. Hope you hear from them soon. The best place to go for boxes is Walmart at about 11 p.m. That's when they do their stocking and have all sizes of boxes. I learned this from my last move.

I've thought of you and your last move over the last few days. The fortunate thing for you is that you didn't have time to think about anything. You had to get out in a few days. It hit you after you moved.

I read my cards last night and it helped me tremendously. I feel much better today. I still wake up in the nigth and morning with an anvil on my chest but I feel better once I get up and get going.

Just think, could always be worse, you could've gotten evicted! :-P Oh, was I an emotional mess, but I didn't have time for a breakdown. I had too much packing to do. You know, I still haven't totally unpacked. I still have boxes of books, etc. I havent gone through. Still missing things like the remote control for a DVD player. I know you wrote somewhere you had friends to help you, but if you ever need an extra pair of hands just send me an email. I mean that.

I am totally jealous that I do not live in Texas right now.

I'm so sorry about you having that anvil feeling on your chest. I know how that feels. Not from moving (I've lived here for 10+), but just general stress.

Hopefully, you'll hear something soon. Just think, a new slate!!

Nora, I'm not sure if you broke down, I just remember that you only had a few days to get out and that you were so focused you didn't have time to really let it sink in.

More developments to come. I'll post later.
