One room down

Six thousand to go!!! We started packing today and we decided to start with the storage shed we have out back. Instead of leaving that until last like we usually would do, we want to be ahead of the game. I'm pretty darn proud because I took a storage that was stuffed to the max and turned it into 5 boxes!!! Oh yeah, you read that right...5 boxes!!!

I don't want to lug the same junk from one place to the next so we are going through everything so we don't end up with a bunch of junk. I parted with all my books....I had a lot of books!! I am a book worm and my books are like my babies, I want to hold them forever or hold on to them forever. Instead, I am going to donate most of my books to charity or a lucky neighbor...which ever gets them out of my house faster.

I have Dewayne here for another week and then he is going to Chicago to look for a job and a place for us to live. I want to use him as much as I can before he leaves. After Dewayne gets back we will only have about two more weeks before we move and I do not want to be trying to pack the whole house in two weeks.

Well, off I go to pack more boxes. Have a great Sunday everyone!

Good luck with all the packing! You never realize how much stuff you have until you move, huh?!

Good luck!! It's amazing how much stuff you accumulate, and you only realize it when you move! :)

Good for you. Its great you got a head start and were able to minimize. I bet you will be happy towards the end that you get that out of the way. Good luck packing:)

On my way home yesterday, I was thinking about you, and wondering when you were going to start packing. (I've moved ALOT, so I can relate! Packing is just a part of my life! HOpefully, we're in this house for at least another 6 years or so! One year, we moved 4 times!)
Hang in there! Thinking of you!
