This has been a wonderfully slow weekend. I slept each night for about 11 hours and cuddled so much with Canavar. There are a million things I feel I should do, but sometimes it is also great to just take a break. Even though extensive to-do lists are flashing through my mind. My apartment looks chaotic even though I cleaned it yesterday. But there are moving boxes standing around, things lying on the floor, and I should put a bigger effort into selling the furniture I want to leave behind. Canavar loves the boxes though. He takes turns in taking naps in each of them.
My couch table is full of documents and work papers. And books that I really wanted to read and then give away before I move. It doesn’t look like that is going to happen though. There is still a lot of work and also many events between now and today in four weeks when I hope we move into our beautiful apartment. June is usually a little crazy because it is the last month of the school year, but I tend to make it always crazier when I move at its end. Seriously, I can’t believe I am moving again after I already moved last year. The longest I have ever lived in the same apartment since I moved out from my parents for university was 3 years. I really would enjoy staying in the same place for a little longer, but it just never seems to happen. Although this year I have an amazing reason to move.
In general I find it overwhelming when I have too many tasks in too many areas that are not related. I need to focus more on monotasking. Thus yesterday I only cleaned my apartment, had Manfred* vacuum, Canavar dusting, and I finally took my winter shoes to the basement. Today I’ll do more school work and some blog work – because everyone needs a creative diversion, right?!
