And I am awake. Tossing and turning in bed because, well, we are moving our entire lives in days that you can count on less than two hands.
And because I fully recognize how ridiculous it is that I spent three hours today sewing a blouse, when I should have been packing a suitcase.
And because I've started thinking about making plans with Stateside friends and have realized that the months of time that I thought I had, isn't, on second thought, exactly long enough to see everybody and do everything and buy everything that I need/want to see and do and buy.
And because I nursed a caffeinated frappe (thanks, Magic Bullet that also needs to go back into its box) until nearly 3 p.m. Someday this caffeine hypersensitivity has to go away, right?
Anyway, I ended up getting out of bed with the intent of boxing up the sewing machine, seductive mechanical temptress that she is.
And I did. She cried a little on the way in, but I held firm. And kept going. And now the sewing room/guest room/office/crap room looks like this:
And it occurs to me that my moves always seem to start and end like this: in a desperately-trying-to-be-organized-and-yet-still-vaguely-messy-and-pathetic stack of way more bins than I thought we needed full of the many things that we want/need to be happy. And the lighting is always terrible. And it's always the middle of the night.
