No more camping in a condo!!!!!

So after almost a month of living in an empty condo our stuff finally arrived last Saturday!!!! Hurray!! 😀 Now our condo looks like a hurricane hit it. :S LoL. Yesterday when Bob got into work they told him that he was headed up to Yorktown, VA for 2 weeks for a training class and he had to report by 10 that night. You’d think I’d be getting used to this by now but it still catches me off guard sometimes, lol. So my Coastie took off leaving me to unpack and try to entertain a toddler all by my lonesome. Oh well, what can you do right? Guess I might as well get used to it because looks like this is going to be my life for the next 16 years or so! As my Aunt put it “Suck it up, buttercup!” LoL! 😀

Thanks to my Mom and my Grandma Middlemas’s genes I’m a “FlyLady“. ( Which basically means that I keep stuff even when I shouldn’t. Kinda like a pack rat. These last few moves I’ve been getting a lot better at “flinging” stuff as we’re going through everything. It’s one thing to decide you’d like to keep something and stick it in a box in your basement and not see it again for 20 years, it’s quite another to look at something and ask yourself, “Now do I really want to pack and unpack this item every couple of years for the next 20 years?!” I’ve found that when you look at it that way, there’s a lot of pointless stuff I’ve been keeping!! One of these things I ran across that I have no idea why I’ve held onto is my first pair of flares that I ever bought when I was probably 14-15 years old. They’re a very little size 7(if you know what I mean by know how you can buy one size in one brand and it fits you completely different than the same size in a different brand?) The last time I fit into them was when I was probably at my skinniest the summer I was 18/19) For some reason I got the urge to try them on and guess what? They FIT!!! Granted, they’re quite snug and I sure don’t look the same in them as I did before, but I got those puppies on without even jumping!! LoL!! That made me feel GOOD! I’ve been losing weight ever since Amber was born but that was the moment that I was like–Hey, for having a baby a year ago I think I could actually be considered skinny! LoL. I’m still bound and determined to fix my eating habits and start an exercise routine once we get settled in here, but that made me feel good!!! 🙂

    Hooray for fitting into “skinny jeans!” Good work…I’m getting there…slowly.

    I remember when you were still waiting for all your stuff to arrive – you thought you’d be sitting on the floor forever I think.

  3. Heidi Plummer

    Hooray! I definitely don’t fit into all of my pre-Alinnah jeans yet…but she’s only been here for 6 weeks, so I’m not too depressed about it yet.
    I’m a definite pack rat myself! Shad isn’t, so he helps me to get rid of stuff. That’s nice…I guess. lol

    Unpacking with kids is ROUGH! Don’t care to do that again anytime soon…or ever again.
