impossible, but true

For the first time in 38 years, 8 months, 2 days, and unknown hours, the thought impossible has occurred. The vivid imagination of SistaGP has stalled. It is understandable that traumatic and lifestyle change events occuring within a short amount of time of each other can have a significant affect on the psyche. Stormy weather, travel to graduation 300 miles away in the middle of the night, and move to a new home in three back-to-back weekends has physically drained this unique collection of brain cells.

12-foot ceiling.
Thankfully, we had the intellect to spend a weeks vacation for the unpacking process. Days were spent from sun-up to almost midnight daily in the tasks of locating items that had been in storage for 4 years, 9 months, and "too tired to count" days/hours. Hubby returned to work 4 days ago and I was left with a dining room and garage full of stuff that mostly will added to the county's landfill.

Since there has been no "power of reproducing images stored in the memory under the suggestion of associated images or of recombining former experiences in the creation of new images directed at a specific goal or aiding in the solution of problems", here is a list of the ten most popular ramblings during the process of re-aquainting myself with my personal belongings.

  • I know I saw that somewhere!
  • Why did we pack that?
  • "Label: Misc" Translation: I'm so tired of packing; just stick in this box.
  • Oh, I remember this!
  • I know I saw it, but where is it now?
  • WOW, it still works!
  • How do you turn it on again? (hubby's rigged stereo equip)
  • Did I raid a Tupperware party?
  • Why did he (hubby) put that there?


  1. Hey Sister GP,

    Take a breath. Take a break, refocus and come at again later.

    You have a daunting task. Do what you can do in human steps! Wonder Woman has left the building.

    You have captured the frustration of packing and unpacking. I feel you and for you!

  2. Gurl, i love the label "miscellaneous", meaning something you just don't what else to do with...i still have those boxes unopened in my garage, lol!

  3. @lovebabz: I took your advice and found the plates. check out the next post.

    @torrance: yes, it is

    @mizrepresent: I have several "misc" boxes, "office misc", "master misc", "basement misc", lol
