It's chaotic... and I am trying to enjoy it

September is almost over, and I know that October is going to come and go just as fast, if not faster... and with a bit more chaos.

Why you ask? Because it's already chaotic.

I like to be organized and usually my apartment is quite clean, with everything in it's place. Right now, not so much. One of the first signs that things are crazy busy is a messy apartment (as much as it drives me crazy I can't seem to get on top of keeping it clean), and then I start to lose things. Or I think I lose things, and then they show up later. Sometimes weeks later.

What did I lose recently? My little accessory bag that I usually have in my gym bag. It carries extra ponytails, headbands, bobby pins, chap stick, and then usually the jewelry I was wearing that day or plan to wear that day, depending on the time of day I worked out. I remember the last time I used it and just couldn't figure out where I left it. That was Monday. I found it today... on top of my dryer and under a sports bra. grr. I must have set it there when throwing dirtly clothes in the basket.
Less than 3 weeks until I close on my house! Less than 4 weeks and I will be moving everything in! I spent a good couple hours last night cleaning and packing. 2 cupboards and one drawer empty, as well as a small bookshelf. 10 boxes packed up.
With all those canvas', I am thinking I should really get back into painting. I have been itching, but in this little apartment, there really isn't much room to set anything up and work on something. Hopefully once I am in my place I can get back into that hobby.

This place is still a mess and I feel sorry for any potential renters that have been walking through my apartment. At least it doesn't smell.

HAHAHA on the booze!

I wrote about you today! I am so confused!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Viv said...

HAHHAHA on all the booze. I have bottles that i have had for years so sad. I am a super clean freak so moving is always stressful to me. You got a great jump on it though and it will keep positive thoughts that all will go great!

Look at you and all that packing, you just inspired me to get the last of my stuff packed up for my move wednesday...

L*I*S*A said...

So exciting to move into a new place!!

Steve Stenzel said...

Good luck with the messiness!!

Jess said...

My mom always said that the best way to thoroughly clean is to move.

Lesley said...

Good job on the packing progress! Occasionally I will trying to get into the moving mindset to REALLY clean my place. Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much.

Good luck with the rest of it!

Borsch said...

Way to go with packing already! Don't worry about the renters coming through, if they don't like it they don't have to rent it. :-)

jahowie said...

Has to be a very exciting time. Good luck with the move!!

Chad in the AZ Desert said...

Packing is always I giant pain in the #%$. I'm just hoping that I've done it for the last time. I would say 'have fun with it,' but who are we kidding? ;-)

Jess said...

I know exactly what you mean about the chaos. My bedroom is a clear reflection of my state of mind. If it is clean things are going good in life...if it's not, then chances are I'm falling behind at life lol!

Wes said...

Yup! Party at your place :-)

Ms. Math said...

I love the photos! It will be fun to look back at these when you're living in your clean, organized house! :)

M*J*C said...

I hated packing to move into my house! My advice....get rid of EVERYTHING that you can!!! I brought so much crap with me, now I've spent the past 2 years going through it all again!!!
Another piece of advice, all that alcohol you have....try drinking that while packing, suddenly you'll be getting rid of everything!!

Realizing how random this is, but . . . Burt's Bees stuff rocks! I've changed to the shampoo and facial cleanser. It's soooo good. They have a blemish stick that is AMAZING.

Colleen said...

Moving is so stressful - kudos to you for getting a head start. Looks like that alcohol might come in handy these next few weeks! :)

Stef said...

Oh gosh I don't like moving chaos either. You seem so organized though and proactive about it. That has to help a little. Once you are moved it will be AWESOME!

Danielle said...

I'm so jealous...I need to get back to painting myself. (by the way, NOT jealous of the moving, that sucks!)

akshaye said...

Haha.. Marcy had to notice that! Get to work on those canvases.. gives you a great way to decorate the new place.
