Opening My Eyes

I've always considered myself to be a pretty observant person.  I don't notice everything, but I often notice things that others don't.  Then something happens that makes me realize how wrong I am.

I present to you exhibit A:

Do you see the little red circle?  This is my winter coat that I got in December.  That is a fairly large envelope holding the spare button hanging from the side seam.  Would you like to know when I found it?  Last week.  Crazy, right?  How could I not notice that?  Just wait, it gets worse.

I present to you exhibit B:

I have been wearing these pants for a year now.  The little tag-holder piece of plastic is much smaller, but I've been WEARING my pants for a YEAR!  I found this little friend about 3 days after I found my button envelope.

A normal person would have cut it right out.  But I didn't.  I'm not sure why.  It's like I am attached to my little pants friend who I just met.  Yeah, I probably need to get out more.

In other news, I'm packing.  Hod and I are moving in with my parents for a month.  We have to be out of our apartment on the 31st.  Hod is working basically 30 hours a week, and going to school full time.  And, can I just share, some of the teachers here are crazy!  Hod has one specific class, that is 2 credits.  Now in a normal world, that would mean from that class you could expect 4-6 hours of homework a week.  Nope.  This teacher expects you to devote 12 hours a week to their class.  This all means that Hod is crazy busy, and that Paily is doing all of the packing.  We have SO MUCH STUFF!!!!  When Hod and I got married and moved up here, we were super busy.  We didn't sort through all of our belongings, so we are doing it now.  Busy, busy Paily.

Every time we've moved (this newest move will make 3), I'm the one that has to do all the packing, too. Artene is going to school full time and work 25-30 hours a week, too, and I...don't. Haha! I have 12 online credits which is a pain, but I still have way more time than him, so I get to go dumpster diving for boxes and packing materials and organize places to put said packed boxes. Lame.

It is just amazing to me how much STUFF accumulates after marriage! It drives me insane and makes it so I hate moving and packing with a huge passion! I'm excited you'll be around in April! We should go on a double date sometime!

My mom has kind of liked moving for that gives you a great reason to de-junk.

HA! I can so relate!!! I have almost no observation skills! Having twins has only made that worse. ;)
