Tonight it really feels like this is happening.
Boxes are waiting by the front door & most of the furniture is taken apart. Bags and boxes are ready to go to charity. And I have a migraine, big surprise.
Tomorrow we pick up the moving truck and take what’s left to the storage unit.
I would show you pictures, but I’m a little embarrassed of everything at this stage.
Earlier today I sat amongst my clothes on the floor of the closet. I simply couldn’t decide which items I wanted to keep, which items were worth storing, and what to give away. It shouldn’t be such a hard choice. Last night I noticed that I’m literally making a decision every few seconds now. Decisions that impact life well into the future. Not little things like, “Do I want to have cereal or pancakes for breakfast”, but decisions all tied to where we’ll be in 3 or 6 months time. Do I need to bring winter clothes? Do I have to keep these documents or paper? Will I even care about them in 6 months time? (obviously tax documents are different, but …) Even going through toiletries is a chore. Some things simply won’t store, and I don’t have friends/family here in Kamloops to give them too. I don’t like the idea of tossing out large quantities of shampoos, soaps and cleaning supplies. But I’m fairly certain I can’t pass them along to Salvation Army. I wish I’d found out if a local shelter could accept items like this, but there’s no time now.
Oh, I was so distracted with packing this this morning, that I burned scrambled eggs this morning. Brilliant! That is something I took a picture of! 🙂 (thanks for suggesting it Kathleen – maybe I’ll share another day).
I’m tumbling into bed now, exhausted but ready to get started in the morning again.
