Ugh!

I can't believe that March is almost over. We have a little over 7 weeks until the move(breath deeply!). I still feel like crap but the kids are bouncy, full of energy and obviously over the ickies a lot faster than their parents.

Ugh. You must be so overwhelmed by how quickly it's creeping up on you! Here's to a speedy recovery so you can start cracking the whip!

Deep breaths indeed!

One thing you can tell yourself is that in seven weeks, no matter what, this will be behind you! Unpacking is much more interesting than packing, even though it always seems to cost a fortune....

I swear by Flylady's "You can do anything for 15 minutes" slogan. If there is something I really hate doing then I get the timer out. Another thing I do when packing is one box every... whatever sounds about reasonable - before each meal for three a day etc. Though the first boxes always go easily then you get left with the lumpy things and the essentials that you can't pack till just before the move. And they are always WAY more than you thought to leave, aren't they?

Just keep your head down and plod along, one step at a time. You WILL get it behind you!!

Ugh! Hope you feel better soon. After all, packing and moving when you are sick is the worst!

Hugs!
Hope you feel better soon.

Try to remember that no matter what, it will all get done and all will work out.

Ugh is right - I hope you all get better soon. We are catching a round of coughing and sniffles ourselves - hopefully it won't get to bad. Hope the move goes well..

Well hopefully you will be able to put all of your kids energy into helping move :) Strap some brooms to them and have them run around the kitchen floor sweeping :)

Hope you feel better soon. Get all the rest you can. Wish we lived closer and we'd take Evan and Harry out to run around our block a few times and visit the neighbors' horses.
One thing I learned about moving is to avoid thinking about it too much. I would make out the "To Do" list, then follow it one day at a time.
Actually moving is exciting, it's the "to do" list that can boggle the mind.

Sounds like a lot to handle right now.

Since he turned a year old, I think Fly has been sick every other month with some kind of head cold! It's frustrating. And on top of your move, wow....
