We’re such packrats. At least a dozen times today, I’ve sat down in my chair, said “We cannot do this! We’ll never get it done!” but the I pick myself up and get back to it. I packed 5 large boxes today – I think they’re 18 x 18 x 20. I packed half of my main closet. I think the other closet can all be donated. I kept out some warmer clothes because something tells me we’re going to be packing and moving for quite a few months.
We got the guest bed taken apart, took the mattress and box spring to the dump so that gave us room to stack boxes.
We ate breakfast this morning, then got busy. A friend was coming over to pick up a few things and I realized I was starving so we’re having pre-breaded chicken breasts and tater tots in the air fryer. When I went to get the tots out of the freezer, I saw a bag of frozen tuna so I grabbed that, thawed it and seared it so tuna steaks, chicken breasts and tater tots – not the best, not the worst meal but quick and we’re eating at home and eating stuff out of the freezers. Win/win/win! 🙂
Here’s a funny thing – funnier for you than for me. Vince said “Look at everything before you pack it. If you don’t REALLY want it, let’s not bring it!” I have three piles going – packing (in the box), a donation pile and a trash pile. Vince comes in and starts looking at the piles, wants to know which pile is which and then he asks “Are you sure you don’t want this? You won’t need it later and wish you hadn’t thrown it out?” Oh, my goodness! If you want me to be selective with what I move, then stop trying to talk me out of throwing it away!!”
