Seriously? I had no idea that moving, after being in one space almost twenty years, was sooooo time consuming. WoW!! Open and honest here; it's a pain. Decluttering is one thing, and yes, it feels so good, but actually getting all the clutter into a container or container "s", and then hauling to Savers, or having someone come and take an article or two...that's a whole different, time consuming process. I am happy that I quit my job before I started this!
Anyway, the garage scene wouldn't be so overwhelming if it weren't for this scene:
It's about 11 degrees outside and not much warmer in our garage. I'm not sure when it will be warmer, but it is January, and I am in the midwest. (sigh)
Below, our living room just a few weeks ago....
The above living room isn't tooooooo bad, but check out the rest of the house.
And now my friends, the dining room, before the beginning of the end.............
I'll share a few more visions of moving. (Trust me, if you don't really, really want to move, don't!)
Need I go on??? Probably not. So, you see, my whole life lately is dedicated to the moving process, knowing that there is light (literally) at the end of this journey. So, other than obsessing with tape, bubble wrap, cardboard, and boxing up huge mirrors, I try to slip in a few hours a week at the gym. Notice I said "try"? Maybe a great excuse, but I do feel so much better after sweating.)
I'm hoping that this will be gone before the moving truck makes it's way down our street and stops at our ex-home.
Soooooooooooooo, I am excited and happy to say that the view from our new front door will be this gorgeous park:
AND the view from our street, looking up to our new home. (If all goes according to plan....)
Thant's it for now......I'll make sure I keep you posted and maybe even give you a few tips about how to make the best of moving....
