Motivation? What Motivation?

The sofa frame is here...


(Excuse the litter box)


The fabric is here...

(Excuse the black furry paperweight)


...and I'm here


I'm struggling folks. We plan on having a moving truck next Wednesday and that's so close I don't feel like I can get anything done before then. Which then leads to getting NOTHING done before then. I have a bad neck spasm, I'm sad, I'm grumpy and I just want to lay on the couch all day and each chocolate and drink Dr Pepper. Pity party, table of one please?

So Micheal says, make a to do list. Can it include getting a massage please honey??

  1. Use the old sofa pieces to cut out the pieces from the new fabric
  2. Buy a new litter box for Kali before we move
  3. Use the Restor-a-finish on the side tables
  4. Use goof-off to clean the paint splotchies off of the lamp we just bought
  5. Go for a walk
  6. Buy new foam and cording for sofa
  7. Schedule my groupon mani/pedi
  8. Reserve the moving truck
  9. Call to confirm that the power is on
  10. Take lots of deep breaths and fit in the occasional piece of chocolate and Dr Pepper and not feel guilty

Okay, here goes. One foot in front of the other.

I'm busting out the sewing machine for our apartment too. Redoing some couch cushions and shortening my curtains (I bought some super cheap long ones)...But I guess I'm confused..."WE" are moving? Micheal is coming with ya? WHOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Get it girl!

Sadly the "we" only refers to the actual moving day, then HE heads back home. :( But yay for the new apt! Post pics!

I'm feelin' ya... I thought I would enjoy having the house to myself, not so much. I only hope I can stay as busy as you will be. And if you don't get the couch done by Wednesday, so what, there's always the weekend. Just sit on your bed. You have a hatchback. Bright side, silver lining, half full, all that stuff.
