I’m kind of organized by nature. (I can’t help it; my parents are/were both accountants. I didn’t stand a chance.) I like making lists. Even more than making lists, I love crossing off items on my To Do list. Confession: sometimes I will even write stuff on my To Do list that I’ve already accomplished, just so I can cross them off and feel productive. Go me!
So while I was enroute from Florida to California yesterday, I broke down my moving process into smaller tasks, and then I scheduled each task on different days. For example, Wednesday was all about reserving a storage unit, procuring boxes and moving supplies, replacing the vertical blinds my dog chewed, and starting to pack the little things, like pictures and knick-knacks. Thursday is about packing books, clothes, and documents/records; changing addresses; and scheduling utilities to be turned off. I will probably also need to make another Home Depot run for paint and supplies. (I’m also going to one last dinner with a group of friends at my favorite Mexican restaurant. They have awesome margaritas. Mmmm… margaritas!)
Exciting, right? Right??
Well, regardless of your lack of enthusiasm, I’m happy to report I’m ahead of schedule on my oh-so-anal moving itinerary. That deserves a margarita!
