Why are there so many songs about rainbows...?

I walked into our apartment after work yesterday and noticed a surreal light coming from outside. The sky was lit up with the most amazing rainbow. it was actually a double rainbow and I could see the whole thing, just so beautiful. Pictures don't do it justice really but I tried. The view is one thing that I will miss about this place. It's really very nice, but I have taken so many pictures of it over the last year.
The packing is going pretty well, I think. I am always dismayed by how much stuff I have, especially in my closet. I am moving to a smaller closet in the new place so I will have to purchase plastic bins to store my off season clothes in. I started packing up one of my dressers and then I moved on to the top shelf of my closet, it took me two bins and I only packed up about 2/3's of my bags and purses. It's not that I'm obsessed with buying purses or even clothes for that matter but in my line of work I certainly do acquire it.
When we moved into this place I got rid of 8 garbage bags worth of clothing and I feel like I could do that again. If I haven't worn it in a year, it goes. Unless it's special or something I want to save, then I will just have to figure out how to find a home for it in the new house.
I won't lie to you, I'm feeling the pressure to have everything done for Sunday's move. I feel like I have so much to do still. The pressure comes from me, since we are moving on the 1st I will not have an opportunity to come back and clean this place so it needs to be a situation of following the movers out the door with the last load, vacuuming to the door as I lock it and leave for the last time. It's so worth it to do that because there is nothing worse than having to go back to your old place and clean when all you want to do is set up the new place. I'll let you know how that goes.
My head is full of "to do" lists and my body is sore from working out. Last night a COLD SORE tried to erupt on my lip but i think I caught it in time with my new remedy, Vicks Vapo Rub. I know it's strange, I discovered it when my lips were really chapped and I looked it up online. I kept seeing Vicks Vapo Rub as a cure for severely chapped lips. I tried it and it worked. Last night when I got the tell tale funny feeling on my lip I put some Vapo Rub on and this morning it's gone. This could be a huge discovery for me and especially my poor Mom who gets horrible break outs of cold sores. I'll let you know.
I'm skipping my workout this morning. I need to go to work, get some stuff done and then home again to pack more.
Wish me luck!

Moving is such a big job, I don't envy you. Are you putting on some good tunes and dancing your way through it?
Success on the cold sore remedy, that's awesome.
Look after yourself, and soon it'll be a distant memory.

Vapo rub on lips?! That's insane - do your eyes not water?
