My mind is going in a million different directions right now and so I’m having a hard time focusing in on any one thing. I’m in the middle of 2 houses, several blogs, end of school year stuff, and I had gum surgery and a 3 hour root canal on Wednesday. That’s probably contributing to my foggy brain more than anything else. All I know is that every time I start out to do one thing, I end up working on something totally different. If there is something “shiny” around, it’s sure to catch my attention and completely distract me from what I should be doing. I have a TON of stuff I should be doing (like packing up the rest of the house), but I keep putting it all off.
I think one of the best ways to illustrate how my mind is working these days is to share some of my recent finds on Pinterest and the thoughts I have about them. I pin all types of random things and that seems to be just what my brain is doing right now as well. Oh, and it is also a great way to procrastinate all those annoying “to do” items on my list!
I adore these travel prints. I should get some to hang in our new house. I wonder how many of these places I’ve been to? I should make a list and scrapbook about it. I would love to go back to Seattle someday. That Joshua tree sure is pretty.
I love the way all of these little vases look. What a great idea to save drink containers and use repurpose them. After we move, I’m totally going to start doing that. Oh, and I’ll buy some spray paint. But then I have to figure out where to keep all of the containers. And I’ll have to paint them. And that will be messy and I have to figure out what kind of flowers I’m going to put in each one and where I will display them. Yep, I’ll probably never do this – but I’m still going to pin it in case I ever feel like I’m in the mood to spray paint old containers.
Oh, I love this song by the Lumineers, I should go listen to it. Hubby is the one who has it in his iTunes though. We really need to have a day where we do a homeshare exchange and get each other’s music. Alex has a ton of songs I want and now that I transferred his iTunes to his new laptop, he lost a lot of the songs he got from my library because I haven’t enabled his new computer from my iTunes yet. Man, it sure is complicated to keep up with all of this technology. Talk about your first world problems. It’s a great song though.
I can’t help but yell “PIVOT” when I see this one. A great episode from my favorite tv show. I need to make my husband watch this one because when we are moving something around that doesn’t fit, I always want to say “PIVOT” and sometimes I even want to channel Chandler when he says “SHUT UP, SHUT UP, SHUT UP!” lol! Now I want to watch that episode again.
This might be the perfect pin for me right now. I seem to need reminders to stay on target. I feel a lot like Dory right now because I’m so easily distracted. I love Dory though. I still think Finding Nemo is my most favoritest movie of all time. It just hits every mark for me and I love the messages about parenting, perseverance, and life in general. Just keep swimming!
Now I’m off to either a) start calling utility companies to arrange for our move, b) pack up some books, or c) take a nap.
