This last two weeks
Have been so busy, it is hard to keep track of the days. This happened this week. The POD arrived last Saturday and left on Thursday, half full of all our valuables. Ugh!!! The house is now seriously empty and we are going to start painting today. We need to get the house on the market. Soon. But there is still so much to do. I have been walking around like a zombie for the past couple of weeks. Not doing any work at school because I'm busy trying to organize things for the move. Talk about stress.
The good news is I have a job. Yeah. Don't know exactly what I'm teaching yet, but I have a job. It pays slightly more than I make here but the cost of living is so much lower there. We are also thinking of taking a long weekend there to just scope things out. I would like that and I know Hubby would like that. He is freaking out about where we will be living. I think that actually seeing it in person will help him a lot. Meanwhile, we are living with the bare minimum. It's fun.
Food has been okay. I haven't really been following anything because I'm just too busy. I find that I don't think about food much at all unless I get hungry. I guess that's good, but it's bad if I don't eat enough. Workouts have been compeltely nonexistent. I went to Crossfit for the first time all month last night. Ugh.
I have so much more to say, but I have to get moving. I'm going to Crossfit this morning and then taking the cable boxes back. We are down to one small TV in the living room. All the other TVs are packed in the POD. Shit, everything is packed in the POD. We are living on the bare minimums and much of this will be dumped when we leave. Life is just so fun.
One thing I've noticed is that I have a lot more energy and a whole better outlook on life recently. I don't know if it's because we are moving and leaving this place that I've been wanting to leave for a while now. Or if it is just having something to work towards. I read something, years ago, that said doing something just to do it is not motivation. You need to have something you are working towards. I think that is true now more than ever.
Okay, I'm off to Crossfit.
For years I lived my life in the 'when'. When I start running again. When I start eating right.... When I do this.... or that......
