80% done!

I'm about 80% done with packing. I was hoping to get everything done by Friday. That means packing, packing shipping boxes, packing husband's stuff and cleaning all the rooms. But letsbereal, that didn't happen. Not even close. On the upside, I'm way ahead than I was the last time we left so yay for that? I've pretty much got all my clothes packed except for the extra hoodies and jeans that'll go in husband's luggage and I got most of my makeup packed too (thank goodness!) I just have a bit more sorting/donating/selling and cleaning to get done. I don't even want to think about cleaning my car. Oyee.  

My blogging has been suffering a bit since I've been running around either doing errands during the day or packing/sorting/cleaning at night. I haven't slept til 3 or 4am this whole week from being busy. The downside to all of this is my OCD isn't really acting up too badly but my hands are wayyy dried out. They were PAINFUL last night from how dry they were from touching everything from plastic to cloth to dusty things. Omgosh. I had to run cold water on them and I attempted to put on some heavy hand cream but they just stung so badly I had to just sit and cry for a little bit. 

I obviously will not miss this dry air in California. 

That's not to say that I'm not nervous about moving. Because I am. I wonder if it ever gets easier. But I guess when it comes down to leaving a place of comfort it probably never gets easier. Especially when you're going somewhere for a long period of time that'll take awhile to build comfort.  

If I can just get these last few things done then I can spend the rest of the days before the trip relaxing and with my kitties. Back to work I go!
