Me, 2nd grade school pic - After a lunchtime kickball game that went into Sudden Death.
I really was cutie pie!
Things I've learned during this move - The majority of which is done, and will be completed in its entirely by Sunday.
NEVER store things like clothes, books, furniture etc., in your garage long term in cardboard boxes because:
1. You will totally forget about them
2. No matter how well you seal them up - the elements WILL get though & the musty smell is hard to get rid of.
3. The mildew on fabric pretty much ruins it.
Cleaning out your parents house and packing up your crap 14 hours a day leads to lots of lows - And a nasty sinus infection because of the all the freaking dust, lack of sleep and stress.
A large bottle of Orange Juice in the fridge in your new place is A MUST.
Spare pump batteries are in every drawer & handbag you own - And it's really time consuming to find out if they still work or not. REALLY TIME CONSUMING.
Even when you think you can't find anymore spare diabetes supplies floating around - You do!
Caffeine in massive doses is KEY.
You find pictures taken of you as a kid that you forgot all about - And you are reminded of how wonderfully cute you really were. So why the hell didn't you see that - especially in middle school & high school?
Whether it's good or bad, things change - And that's life.
You find strength in letters and notes from your parents that you tucked away for safe keeping long ago, and that come to light just when you need them most~
6 months goes by like THAT - Yet you still cry like it just happened. But you are your mother's daughter, so you will survive it - And make her proud~
