That PCS Slump
This picture of my closet shelves pretty much indicates where I "am" right now. Once upon a time, these shelves were organized and neatly folded and stayed that way for a while. Now it's just a random pile of basically clean clothes that I guess I could spend a half an hour getting into shape, but why? It's all going to be gone soon.
They started a new Women's Bible Study unit at our church, and I guess I could go and try to meet some people, but why? We're just going to be gone soon. (Aside, of course, from the fact that the class is during Baby G's morning nap and if she misses that the whole day is SO much longer)
We've been thinking of getting new bedroom furniture (and new dog beds) but that seems silly to do BEFORE they are put it in crates and shipped across an ocean.
I'm afraid to start any project that takes more than an hour to complete. I can't be sure I'll get the chance to come back to it before we leave, if I get interrupted.
I feel unsettled, and I don't like that. I like feeling settled, grounded, stable. It's not the clutter, it's the transition.
I'm ready to be sure-footed again. Yes, starting over, it takes a while to get to that place. But at least it will feel like it'll be worth the effort.
I'm so ready for this PCS to be over.
