We'll be leaving on a day that ends in "Y"....
At some point, you realize you have too much stuff. So you purge. You donate, you give away to friends/family, you sell etc. However, when you're packing a moving truck, you realize that all your months of purging somehow doubled your stuff?! WTH. There it is... sitting out staring at you saying "How are you going to put me in that truck?"
We were suppose to leave Monday. That turned into Tuesday which turned into Wednesday... you get the point. Now the truck is leaving sometime after 2pm tomorrow and we'll stay behind to clean our empty house and stay one last night to try and get a good amount of sleep. Afterall, we'll be next facing a 24 hour road trip with a 1 and a 2 year old. Yes, seriously.
We were alotted 19 ft on a 26ft trailer. Today we almost have filled up the truck to that allotted amount and yet we still have two beds, 10 or so more boxes and a bunch of misc. crap that doesn't fit into a box... and a garage still screaming for someone to come in and clean IT up as well. We've sold pretty much ALL our furniture.
Our new home will be equipped with 200 boxes, 2 toddlers, 1 dog and 2 very tired adults.
I'm crafty right? Wonder if I can make a couch and a table out of the boxes?? Ashlynn could color them with her crayons!
