Go ahead, recite it at me. You know you want to.


I know I have a nursery rhyme to live up to but this is ridiculous. Whatever anyone else wants me to do or whatever I’m supposed to be doing, I am guaranteed to want to do the exact opposite.
Case in point: We have lived in this house over a month now and there are still boxes everywhere. I have spent a lot of time around the house and have not yet been inspired to get any unpacking done.
Well, just a little while ago I was in JZ’s room and felt a sudden inspiration to get in there and get it organized and put away just how I want it. The problem?
We are having a garage sale tomorrow and I have six bags/boxes worth of stuff that I absolutely HAVE to price today so it will be ready to take over to the old house for the sale.
Why, why, WHY is it the one day I have something else I actually MUST do is the day I actually feel like doing unpacking?? I know me and I know my game and I can tell you exactly what will happen. By the time I’ve priced all the sale stuff the urge to unpack will’ve passed and who the hell knows when it will be back?
Mad krazy, y’all, I’m telling you.

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Would that nursery rhyme be — “There was a little girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. And when she was good, she was very good. But when she was bad…”
    Anyway, that’s what I thought of between words and visuals. Good luck with your sale — and your house will get organized. Just remember to breathe and know that you are just one person with many responsibilities — all crying out for your immediate attention.
