Quick update

For anyone wondering -- I am all moved, I still have some junk in my attic and garage that needs to be taken care of, but overall everything is moved, and I am starting the long process of unpacking. There is some furniture I still need, so I am soon venturing to Estate Specialists in the search, and since I have as show opening in 5 weeks, I will probably be living with the chaos for quite a while.

There has been an unforeseen consequence of all the stress in my life right now; between teaching, and directing, and moving, and trying to manage everything else, my mind and body have started to shut down, and I am so overwhelmed I am not terribly functional. I feel like a board that has gotten overloaded and is cracking on the way to snapping in two. I probably won't be updating much for a while until I can get adjusted, or until my stress level drops. Any prayers or positive thoughts would be appreciated.

erin - this is a HUGE change, and the stress you are feeling is perfectly normal. give yourself time to adjust (cut out some things right now if can - like going to school if you can take some sick days). i'm proud of you for handling all that you are right now. get some rest and settle into your new place! congratulations!

Hey dear, I went to the doctor during the time i was moving last year because i was so tired and sluggish. Diagnosis was that there was nothing wrong with me just stress. So yes you need to take it easy and know that this is normal. You can do it, one day at a time!

((hug)) Moving has always been one of the most stressful things I've experienced in my life, be it moving just down the road, or to another country. Things are going to get better. Know that I'm thinking of you.
