Packing 101

First of all, just so you all know. I do not eat gourmet every day. I rarely have time for breakfast, lunch is a granola bar and sometimes dinner is anything that is fast. I think you out there in blogger world think i whip up fancy meals all the time, when in reality my food choices border on boring or random or whatever i scrounge from my cupboards. Yes, sometimes i get inspired and make some tasty treats... and i do like to experiment with recipes, but some nights i just get lazy. It is never fun just cooking for yourself. If i cook i like to do it up right and make nice meals for others. When I'm alone, i don't care as much. Case in point, last night for dinner i had potato chips and wine. The chips were baked so they were so healthy (ok eating half the bag is not healthy, but healthier) and the wine was cheap, but good so who cares right? That was me eating dinner sitting on my couch procrastinating and NOT packing. Then I made muffins to share at work, but i didn't make them from scratch. Pillsbury in a pouch, just add water. Why am i confessing to so much slacking!?!
Speaking of packing (and slacking)... I have to start! It is my worst nightmare...
I have moved so many times in the past 5 years that I should be a pro, but needless to say, I suck! I just tend to throw it all in boxes. And the last 4 of my moves my ex-boyfriend did most of the packing. But I am going to make a new resolution to do it:
a) myself
b) purging and not hoarding
c) happy (no panic attacks allowed)
d) and all finished by the end of the month.

Letter B is one of my favorite things in the world to do! Excellent goal Sabrina. It is so cleansing and freeing and a total high to get rid of crap. I get the same buzz from weeding my lawn and cutting my bangs. Extra weeds, hair, crap in my house makes me lose sleep, I swear. If you don't use it, lose it! Don't be grandma and have a basement full of crap. Don't do it!!!!! :-)

can you skip doing it yourself cause I LOVE to help with this sort of big thing. I, like K and K love to purge. but I promise I won't throw out things while you aren't looking. Maybe I could just sit on the couch with chips and wine and bark orders to keep you on task...
