Catching My Breath

You know that scene from The Sound of Music where Liesl gets kissed by Rolfe, then she throws her hands out in front of her and shouts "WEEEEEEE!!!" like she is soooo ridiculously giddy and happy and without a care in the world?

Well, I do not feel like that today.

Have I mentioned that I am in the middle of moving?  And since it has been about fourteen years since I last changed residences, I had forgotten what a god-awful experience it is.  I bought my mother's house last month and my sister and I spent all last week moving her and my stepfather into their new place.  (We coined a new term term too--Organized Hoarding.  JUST KIDDING, MOM!  Sort of.)   Now I get to repeat the whole process AGAIN.  Only add some painting and some repair work to it.  I'm about three fourths crazy right now and I haven't cooked anything worth anything in a week and a half.  And what's even worse than that is that I have ignored some basic grooming tasks like eyebrow plucking because how can I justify that extra seven minutes in front of a magnifying mirror when there are cabinets to be wiped out and dishes to be boxed up?

*I am a hideous beast*

And in the middle of all this, my cell phone had a bad accident and now the battery won't stay in, which causes it to shut down every ten minutes.  I did manage a temporary fix until I have a pocket of time to figure out what kind of new phone I should get. 

On the bright side, the office clips look very Easter-y, wouldn't you say?

And because we're in transition, I have little food in my home.  And I have discovered that having groceries in your home is an integral part of having a successful food blog.  Which means epic fail for Mississippi Kitchen.  A good amount of my daily caloric needs this week have been met with Biscoff and Nilla wafers, which was fine the first 6 times I ate it, but now my body is crying out for protein.

What I wouldn't give for a home-cooked meal.  *Sigh*

But, and this is a big but, I am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.  I really am.  Soon, and by soon I mean maybe two weeks,  I will be settled and I will be doing the fun stuff like gardening in my new yard and getting to know all of these trees and plants I have.  And cooking.  Because I'm starving.

Be back as soon as possible.  With food.:)

Pin It!


  1. Oh, how I hate moving! Hope it gets better! Love the phone clips! :)

  2. And this organized hoarder thanks you and your sister for the wonderful help! I will repay you by teaching you all about the flowers and trees that you have acquired and by NEVER MOVING AGAIN UNTIL ITS TIME TO GO TO THE CEMETERY!!! (Which may be soon if I don't get all this hoarded stuff organized!)

  3. I can't wait to see more of your place! That's so exciting. I bet it's gorgeous.
