I Need A Good Swift Kick In The Ass 

I need a kick-start badly.

It’s time to start packing but I have no motivation to do it at all.
Because our daughter is going to rent this house from us when we leave I only have to pack up what I absolutely want to take. I told her that she is free to keep, toss, or sell anything we leave in the end.
While I know I can’t pack up everything right now, I could at the very least pack all of my books. I could also go through and sort out all of the clothes. Any of the clothes we don’t take will go to the mission. I could also pack the DVDs and computer CDs up too I guess.
So what is holding me up?
My mind is fighting itself terribly. One side says “Get up and start!” while the other side says “Don’t worry; you have plenty of time to get it done.”
I know that part of the problem is that I am such a packrat. I am afraid if I DON’T take something with me I will want it as soon as I get up there. I know I could always buy it again, but that’s just a waste of money. So how do I choose what I WILL want and what I can live without? Do I need ALL of my books? Do I need ALL of my craft supplies? Do I need ALL of the stuff in the hall closet? I know I am leaving the dishes, but which pans should I take?
What am I going to do about all of Ap0k’s car parts and stuff? I mean come on; there is even a full set of seats for his car in the closet. There are bits and pieces of Camaro everywhere I turn, up to and including a tranny in the closet. What am I going to do with it all? He has 2 giant rolling toolboxes slam full of tools, that’s not going to be easy to deal with. He also has tools in cases stashed all over. I don’t even want to think about what he has under the carport and in the shed! ACK! Actually I am not sure that the movers will even take some of his stuff. I may end up getting a trailer for some of it. I know they won’t want to dig his air compressor out of the shed. The list of do’s and don’ts that they gave us specifies that they will not take vehicles, but it says nothing about vehicle PARTS.
I wanted to get some of those nifty Space Bags to put the blankets and my wedding dress in, but DAMN they are expensive!
Should I take my dresser? I really like it, but it’s so big and bulky. Should I take the shelves in the closet? We just barely bought them.
I know I am leaving this chair. It’s worn out and makes my butt hurt!
I’m definitely going to take my desk because I just bought it. Same with the couch.
We are taking the bed because it is only a few months old.
Darn, I wish I would have known a couple months ago that we would be moving. I wouldn’t have bought all of this stuff.
We need to get rid of the truck in the backyard. We need to get the utilities shut off. We need to get the address changed once we have a new one.
One thing I DID get done today was to gather up all of the change and loose money lying around the house. I took all the change to a CoinStar machine and ended up with more than enough to pay for my gas up there and some food on the way.
It may not be much of a start, but at least it was something.

I can honestly say that right at this moment I am totally overwhelmed.
