7 days and counting....  
My brain is fried.  I think my body is fried too.  No one is packing at our house yet but me, and it rained tonight so I couldn't put my master plan / plea 'well, just take a half an hour and get some boxes in the pod' into place.

So yeah, freaking out?  I think that's me.  The funny part is that I'm trying to remember what the time frames were for our last couple of moves (you know, how we started packing, when we started packing, how long it took us to get everything together) and I honestly ... don't remember.  I kind of wonder if my brain blocked the memories because I've always been the one who's more agro about this whole process and it was too traumatic ....

The sad part of it is that I went to go back and look up what I was writing around the time we moved out to Austin (because moving across a city is NOTHING compared to moving across a couple of states), and sadly I didn't have an LJ then.  And my backups for my online blogger journal?  somewhere else.  Not worth finding.  Bleh.  Don't mind me, I'll be quietly freaking out in the corner somewhere.

Eep! It's coming up so fast! No wonder you're freaking out. I can't remember packing much, either. I think my brain blocked it out, as well. Though I'm sure I left thing to the last minute, as per EB's usual. ;)

I wish you luck! Am thinking about you (and if you need me to do anything w/ SoG, just lemme know; I'm more than happy to help).

it totally is RACING by! i had a talk with the fam and so i'm doing a little better now, but yeah, i think we all blank out the packing things...trauma!

thanks darling! *glomps you* i am thinking about you too, even if i'm not picking up the phone... and i may take you up on that SOG offer - we'll see! we've had some defections lately, but you saw that email right? hopefully that'll put people back on time...

it totally is. I think it doesn't help that the boy and the girl (housemate) are both stressed and so it's a stress feeding frenzy.

it's getting better though darling, and i love that you've been putting snippits out there so i can read glim!fic and be distracted for a little here and there!

Moving is just inevitably stressful, traumatic, and I'm not surprised any of us block out exactly to what extent it is!

You'll get there, I promise. Good luck!

Exactly - protective mental blocks! The only problem is that I don't remember *how* to do this stuff anymore.

It's coming back though, and we're getting there. Thanks darling!! *hugs*

hahah i totally feel you. we're moving on the 1st and haven't really started packing yet, and it's majorly stressing me out. i'm trying to do a box or two/day, but i'm about to start panicking. nothing like taking a summer course, working a part-time job, and trying to move. @_@

i think when i moved here from tx, i packed for 1.5/2 weeks beforehand, but i can't really remember for sure. plus, i didn't have as much stuff to move (since there's only one of me), so i donno. i'm sure it'll be alright though.

but in the meantime....good luck, and don't go crazy dreaming of boxes and that really horrible noise that the tape makes. i will be freaking out in the corner with you ;p

*hugs you* pain shared! pain shared is good! though i'm sorry i wish it wasn't stressful for you either - but yeah, this weekend is a good time for both of us to be packing.

it'll all work out. i did my whole freak out online thing, and now we're getting stuff packed and moving forward, so it's gonna be ok. Good luck to you too darling woman!

and i can't wait till we figure out time to actually hang out together - same state = good!
