An Experiment.

So today I want to see if I can get through an entire post without mentioning anything revolving around moving. Starting from now, that is. Not another word.

Nope. I tried. I just can't do it. Sorry about that.

It's just that every waking minute of every day, I'm thinking about something move-related. I can't even get away from it while I am sleeping - I'm having those bizarre dreams that you remember having, but can't remember what they were about. (Though for some reason, I have a sneaking suspicion that they involved men with accents.)

I'm know I'm scatterbrained, but this is just ridiculous.

Yesterday morning, I arrived at school at my usual 8am time, and went to my classroom to organise my day. A few times I wondered why it was so quiet in the wing, but I shrugged my shoulders and put it down to being the end of term. Half an hour later, I had a phone call, reminding me that the usual Tuesday morning staff meeting had begun ... 20 minutes ago.

I've still put off the packing, because I don't want to think about it just yet. I've used the excuse of waiting for this week's clothes to be washed, but really it's just because I don't want to do it. I hate packing. I hate leaving so much stuff behind. I hate that the Sex & the City boxsets I pre-ordered are delayed and won't be here until I leave - makes packing just a wee bit difficult.

(Yes, I am taking my dvds with me. Caseless, of course.)

This week is shaping up to be really busy. I'm catching up with a friend tonight over Thai food. I have the Year 6 farewell shindig tomorrow night. I'll hopefully be spending this coming weekend with my family, but then that's it. Soon enough it will be Christmas Eve, followed by THE DAY.

Now do you see why I can't stop thinking about it?

At this rate, I'll have no readers left by the time I make the move - because you'll all be bored to tears. Bear with me for six more days of pre-move rambles & jitters. I promise there's light at the end of the tunnel, if you can stand it!

I think you're perfectly justified in having moving constantly on the brain. You're about to make a huge change in your life! And once you get there, there will be other things to acclimate to. But we all know you can do it, and we're looking forward to seeing how it all works out. :)

Katie said...

Just a quick note - make sure the DVD's will work in England, because a lot of them won't! When I came back from England with a box load of DVD's, none of them worked because they had a geographical lock on them or something.

Lara said...

i can stand any and all rambling you dish out, little girl. bring it on, i say!

also, i really like the new look!

Virginia said...

I love your blog, feel free to write about whatever is on your mind!

Nathan Pralle said...

Hrm....let's see....you're jumping halfway across the world for a year and you can't stop thinking about it? You're hug deprived and can't stop thinking about it? You have to fit everything you own into 6 square feet and can't stop thinking about it?

Duh. Silly girl. :)

We're all cheering for ya -- don't think you're boring us yet!

PS -- The new theme? No likey. No worky in Firefoxy very welly. Very pastelly. I feel all femaley now. ;)

kirby said...

talk about it all you wish, dear. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one that's living vicariously through you at the moment....

Teacher A said...

I think we're all just very excited for you.

Kat said...

You are a silly girl. I think your readers are really excited for you and we're following your every move. It is like a real life soap opera followed on a blog and more well intelligent than your normal soap opera, with real life people...Well since I can relate to everything you're going through right now I want to hear all about it.

Jodi said...

Your blog looks great!

I'm not surprised moving is constantly on your mind. Coupled with all the end of year stuff etc etc.

I don't think anyone would be expecting you to blog about anything else right now. :-)

Julz* said...

:( I'm not bored by your ranting...but I will be in tears at the thought that you're not in oz anymore :( gahhhhhhh alyyyyyyyy *clings*

michelle and the city said...

you listened to me cry and mope for a month while going thru my breakup. i think i'll stick around while you write about your EXCITING MOVE to ANOTHER COUNTRY. yeah, i don't think that topic is quite as boring as why boys suck.

Katie said...

If I were moving out of the country in less than a week's time, that's all I would be writing/talking/dreaming/whatever about too! It's very exciting actually, and I'm living vicariously through you :)

rye said...

You can't help but write what's ALWAYS on your mind right now. You're going through a HUGE life change, so don't apologize for being a little pre-occupied by it all ... anyways, that's what I love about reading blogs! Getting a glimpse into other people's situations and ever-changing life's directions. You could write a detailed list of where each item is being placed in your suitcase, and somehow you would make that interesting!

Leslie said...

No apologies required. You are totally justified. Besides, we're all waiting for the "LONDON POSTS" to begin!!! Blog looks sooooooo cuuuuuuuute!

natalie said...

soooo sooooooon! I wouldn't talk about anything else either. Exciting. Scary. Exciting. Scary. Exciting!!!!

elise said...

Ooh, no, I am totally moving with you vicariously. So if you stop talking about it, then I won't be able to live my (your) exciting, fantastic adventure anymore!

nancypearlwannabe said...

Hee... I love that you're concerned about packing your Sex and the City DVDs but not your clothes!

Viviane said...

Haha I know the feeling, I would even dream about packing or forgetting stuff. And I really think I am going to start packing tonight even though I still have 48 hours till my flight leaves and I am only going to be gone for two weeks. What I am thinking I will do back home is rip some of my DVDs (movies & TV shows) to my portable HD. That way I can take them with me without having to take any extra luggage.

sognatrice said...

No need to pretend these feelings aren't there; I once made a big move and believe me, if I had had a blog at the time, I can't imagine I would've written about anything else leading up to it.

And I brought *most* of my CDs, without cases. DVDs weren't really big yet I don't think, or at least they weren't at my house ;)

brandy said...

I'm excited for your move too! In fact, I was away for the last few days and was excited to come and read if you had moved yet or what the progress was on packing- so never apologize for talking of it!!

And all the other commenters are giving excellent advice about packing and CD's so I won't. Instead I will say, take extra peanuts on the plane.

She Likes Purple said...

I'm behind and catching up on my blogs. I LOVE YOUR NEW SITE. It's gorgeous.

Candy said...

I think the hardest part for all of us, is that while you're actually traveling and getting settled, we might not hear from you! So prattle on. Maybe it will hold us.

Marriage-101 said...

Don't worry! I'm living vicariously thru you since I would LOOOOVE to be making the kind of move you are right. now. Except, you can keep the stress of course! ;)

Kristabella said...

If you WEREN'T talking about it, I would be worried.

This is a BIG move. And it is SO EXCITING! I'd be writing in all caps, ALL TIMES, if I were you.

It will all get done.

And hey, it is a lot more interesting than talking about toothaches. :)

katelin said...

Hope your week gets better! I'm right there with you in the scattered/frazzled department.

Laurel said...

If I were you, I couldn't think of anything else, either! I love reading about your excitement building every day!

YOU'RE GOING TO BE IN LONDON IN LESS THAN A WEEK!!!!!!
