Charis Cross Country: Preparations

It has begun.

After weeks of planning and plotting and making "hey, we're gonna be in town!" calls, it happened, er, started, yesterday.

The packing process.

(I can hear all of your groans, and thank you, yes, it is tedious)

Yesterday I went through my closet, and my dressers, and my shoe collection...who knew I had so many clothes? It never feels like it...in order to decide what will be coming on the move and what is being donated to charity. (now at least all my shoes fit in their little bins that T built for me last year. Quite nice. Makes me wonder why I didn't do this 10 months ago....)

I also started in on the library, labeling my shelves so T can pack them up for me while I'm at work (did I mention that I am affianced to the perfect man?)

On the docket for tonight?
I get my car detailed so that (sob) tomorrow (sob) I can
(sob) put it up for sale (sob).

Very sad.

But you gotta do what you gotta do.

Onward and upward, I say!

Today's whiteboard quote:
"Real life is insecure, you do not know about tomorrow because you know that tomorrow exists not. This moment is all we've got. Squeeze the juice of life now!"

well say good bye to the cloths, books, and even the car but don't you dare sell them shoes. remember that there is a poor poor lil ole house wife in emporia that wears the same size as you. i will take all your give aways. hell why not have a yard sale and make money instead of donating it, just saying. make some money while you have the chance. love ya and good luck with all thats on you plate.

I feel the same way when packing, where the fork did all these clothes come from? Are they mine? Where have they been? ;)
