Making Myself Crazy(ier)

With the impending move, I am making myself crazy. To the point of nausea and hyperventalation. (Just a short burst, but something that I did not like.)

When I came to my sense and realized that I was over-reacting (Who me? Couldn't be.) and that I had to slow my roll. I need to wait until I have more definitive answers from the higher ups and then proceed at a break neck pace to figure out that the heck I'm going to be doing. First and foremost, I'm going only make a list of places that I will look at once I know when I need to (for sure) be in DC. As in, make a list at places that have a washer/dryer in the unit, is close to the Metro, the price is something I'm comfortable with and is in an area of town that people have recommended to me.

Once I have my short list mapped out, I will make a pro/con of all amenities, locations, commutes, proximity to crucial stores (grocery and convenience, not H&M), and rank from there.

Hopefully this will keep me from the hyperventilation that freaked me out yesterday and causing me to eat all 9 of the delicious chocolate covered strawberries that my Dad and Sharon sent me for Valentine's day. Whatever. It was a couple of servings of essential fruit with a sugar based sidecar. I can deal.

Here's to the new adventure and my planning mind being able to gear down for now.


  1. If I was in your shoes I probably would have eaten way more than 9 chocolate covered strawberries. I also really like how you categorize them... fruit and a little sugar. No biggie! :)

  2. We will be moving again soon and I am doing the same thing by making a list and rating them according to amenities. I think it is one of the best ways to add organization/structure to the move. Congratulations and enjoy this exciting time!!
