Not Packing

Today is Wednesday. I am leaving California on Sunday morning. My Mexican grandma's 70th birthday FIESTA is on Saturday. I might drive down to my dad's on Friday. And I've got one huge problem.

I have not started packing. At all.

This is a pattern with me.

If my mom had not flown out to Phoenix, I never would have gotten my stuff packed, shoved into my car, and driven back to Sacramento. If Austin had not offered to help me pack for France, I never would have made it onto the plane.

I hate packing. I am the worst packer of all time. I am unmotivated.

So what did I do today?



I bought this:




What is that, you ask? Why, it's a glass mannequin head!

Here is what I did today:
- Lunch with Meagan (Color Guard diva and dogsitter extraordinaire)
- Random Home Depot encounter with Eric (one of my best high school buddies)
- Decided to call Kevin (junior high best friend) and then had coffee and went shopping with him
- Randomly saw Scotty Sutter's dad
- Randomly saw Kathy King
- BOUGHT GLASS HEAD as I was waiting for Dan (best high school guy friend) to finish playing tennis and get dinner with me
- Dinner with Dan and Eric
- Ice cream

So as you can see, I did not pack today. But I did see a lot of people who mean a whole lot to me. And I did buy something that I've wanted for a long time, even though I had no clue what I'm going to do with it.

Fishbowl? Vase? Paperweight? Ideas?

I really need to start packing tomorrow.

P.S. LES SOLDES have started in France. I fully blame my impulse buying on this fact.

P.P.S. I also bought a knit-your-own-teddy-bear set at a craft store. I should have been packing.

I think you should make a fishbowl out of it :) That would be neat.

Here is some motivation for you:
Pack. So the sooner you ARE packed, the sooner you will be ready to come back. I know I say this all the time, but the closer it gets to you coming back to AZ, the more I miss you and need to talk with you.

Have safe travels. And also have fun at the FIESTA! :) hehe. Adios chickadee.

a glass head?? that's interesting... but of course you can use it for fabulous hats and to hold jewelry or something... at least that's what i would use it for.

oh and you should totally start packing because if you don't get to phoenix because you didn't pack... i won't get to see you in az one last time and that would be sad.

use it to cover a mini tropical garden...it might start growing mold in its nostrils tho.
