So. Uh. Yah.

So people have been calling me to make sure I'm alive since I haven't updated my blog.

I have a lot going on so updates are going to be pretty sporadic for a while.

We have just over 2 months before we're out of here. I have reached the point where, in my quest to pack up the non-essential crap that I just want to get out of here, that I have literally boxed my family into our house. There's a trail in between boxes that we follow to get from one place to the next, and well, that's about how it is.

See, I'm a procrastinator. I'm the kind of person who puts things off until the last possible minute and then I freak out trying to get things done. Believe it or not, I actually thrive in those sort of circumstances, but it's not a pretty thing to witness. So I've decided that I'm going to spare my family the sight of me freaking out, and I'm trying to make sure that if things don't get done in time, it isn't MY fault lol.

This week was spring break for Sebastian. I wish I could say that we did something exciting, but we really didn't. We went to the mall, and took a routine trip to WallyWorld and to the grocery store, but other than that, we stuck around home, mostly because I have a sinus infection.

What we did do though, that was kind of cool, was sift through our family movies. Movies from when he was first born, all the way up. Sebastian really digs doing this, and I do, too. I am amazed at how easy it is to forget how he was as a baby. I look at him now and I have such a hard time remembering how small he was or holding him when he was just a little thing, and I don't know why that is. That's why these movies are so valuable to me, because I could just watch them over and over and over again, and I could never get tired of them.

Makes me want another baby, too. Heheh.

I haven't accomplished anything knitting-wise. I just don't have the attention span right now to do anything more than a dishcloth. I've started like, 4 different projects this week alone, but I just can't sit down and get into them.

I guess I just have too much on my mind-I'm too distracted. All I can think of is getting out of this horrible town, and every time I hear yet one more craptastic thing that is going on in town or that has happened in the schools, I breathe a sigh of relief because I know that in two months and one week, it won't be my problem anymore. I won't have to worry about it or how it's going to affect my son and school and our taxes and the sewer and which teacher got fired for what inappropriate Myspace page or how many kids got busted or overdosed on heroine in the junior high school last week or why they're going to let them put in a senior center in a community where not enough people are voting for school taxes, etc.

There are just so many reasons to be ready to go, and if you could sit there while I spent all day listing them out, you'd be just as anxious as I am for school to end so we can get the HELL out of this place.

Anyway, I got this nifty cherry chocolate pudding cake at the store today. And I'm going to go downstairs, and I'm going to eat it. :)

Not going to be my problem anymore
