A mental picture

Ok, so like I was getting all distracted from packing and stuff and wanted to make soap in a really big way and like I couldn't get my mind off it even though I was scared I would mess it up and was kind of relieved to find out that I didn't actually have all the stuff I needed so I packed some more and then we went to the store the next day and got the stuff but when we got out of the store the truck wouldn't start and it was really late so then everything was closed except Walmart (duh!) so we'd have to spend the night somewhere but I like didn't have my inhaler with me and I really neeeeeded my inhaler so we didn't get a hotel room 'cuz that might make it worse so we just slept in the truck and it was all cool except the thunderstorm was freaky but we were ok. And then this morning we got the truck towed and Enterprise picked us up just like they said and we came home and saw the house was ok even though I had this totally weird vision of it being all messed up and stuff so then we slept for real and then they called and said the truck was fixed so we went and got it and came home and had supper and watched a movie and now I like don't want to make soap anymore but I got some packing done. So like I think the truck thing was a good distraction and I'll make the soap next time I need a distraction but I hope that's not soon 'cuz I really have to get a lot more packing done since we have so much STUFF but like we use it so I keep walking around looking at everything and wondering what I can do without for a whole 4-6 weeks and sometimes I think we need all of it and then sometimes I think we don't need any of it and why am I even packing all that STUFF anyway and then I remember that I have like this whole family and they like nice casseroles and warm clothes and bouncy balls and stuff like that so then I look at the pile of boxes and maybe pack another box or maybe wander through the house again and sometimes all my brain can think of is AAAAAAAAAAAGH! and then other times I think hey, I should make a list which is why I have like dozens of lists all over and then I need a list to help me remember where all my lists are and what they're for and stuff like that and then when I do one little thing I have to find all the lists it's on and cross that little thing off or it drives me crazy and stuff so I'm not making lists so much anymore but that's driving me crazy too I think.

That's why I don't drink soda with my supper, as a rule.


  1. I was gonna say, "Heidi, did you stop at Starbucks on your way home from picking up your truck??" LOL

  2. WOW! What a day/night/day you had!!! Which one was that? Yesterday, Thursday?? I can't imagine!! So glad the truck got taken care of and it was less than 24 hours! Yikes! WHAT an ordeal... and you do sorta sound like you are on coffee -- super strong... maybe it'll help with the packing... or maybe not. ;)

  3. I wish you would have called me! We could have figured some way to get you all home.


  4. I'm out of breath just "listening" to your ordeal. How wonderfully entertaining to read, though. You amaze me in all sorts of ways!
    I love you!

  5. I love you, you amazing woman!!! I read this in the library and labored to keep quiet (in vain I might add). Thanks for updating the photos and such. I miss you and will see you soon.

  6. It's wonderful to see you here, dear husband! xxoo
