Happy Monday! Did you all have a good weekend?
Mine was spent amidst a sea of boxes as I organized and packed and tried to get myself in a good place as I look towards my move this weekend. I will actually be picking up my keys after work today but all of the heavy lifting (quite literally) won’t be happening until Saturday when my parents get to town.
I’ll be honest, I’m having some major separation anxiety over my yoga studio though and knowing that being a 40 minute drive vs. a 10 minute drive means I won’t make it there nearly as often as I do now. I paid for a year upfront which goes until mid-February so I’m hoping to figure out in the next few months what feels like an attainable amount before buying another membership, plus I plan to try a couple studios around where I’ll be living and see if I find one I like as much.
Admittedly I was hoping to pack my week last week with as much yoga as humanly possible, but my body thought differently and I found myself battling one of the worst migraines in a very long time, maybe ever. It lingered for a few days where water, coffee, peppermint oil, chiropractic adjustments or even my prescription couldn’t help take it all the way down and within about 30 minutes of walking in the door from work Wednesday night, I was in bed in tears and basically shaking uncontrollably, where I had to crawl around my apartment on my hands and knees to get the number for my doctor. Needless to say, I ended up calling a friend who picked me up and took me to the ER where they gave me a triage of medication and sent me home to pass right out, which is exactly what I did.
Thursday was a bit of a blur. I worked from home since I was super groggy from the meds and not sure if driving was a great idea, but come Friday I was back at yoga first thing in the morning. These next couple weeks are going to just get busier and busier, but I know that’s the case for all of us and honestly, I’m not really complaining about it. 🙂
Anyway, enough about migraines…one of my favorite things about moving is the opportunity to quite literally clean house. I am one of those crazy people who loves to sort through their stuff and decide what I actually want to keep, what to donate or sell, and what to toss. For the last week or two, I’ve been going through old CDs and burning them to my iTunes library and setting them aside for a future garage sale. I’m so happy that is finally done and now my CD collection has been narrowed down to one small box with CDs I’m keeping for sentimental purposes, like bands I worked with, signed copies, etc.
Thankfully the other great thing about packing is being able to just blast some music and sing and dance along and that’s just what I did all weekend while listening to Lissie’s ‘My Wild West’ album; it seriously made the perfect soundtrack to my packing. Though admittedly, I kept starting various packing projects and then got sidetracked by another pile of stuff, the need for more coffee or water or food, or who even knows what else, but the music made the perfect backdrop to the busy weekend at hand.
How was your weekend?
Do you enjoy moving?
