Is there anything more un-fun than packing? Well.. there’s probably is, but packing definitely ranks on the list.
Although we were at first delighted to have a couple months for the great move, it has proved to provide a few challenges that moving all at once doesn’t.
Mostly… what do you pack, and when. We are essentially trying to live between two places, but only have enough stuff for one.
Dave has been in a terrible rush to get all the shelves, etc, taken off the walls here so he can make repairs and make it easy to paint for the next tenant. But a lot of the stuff on those shelves is stuff I’m still using, so it can’t just be packed into a box – and now, without shelving, it’s in my way!!! (Think baking canisters that are now taking up precious counter space, of which I already have too little)
I’ve been trying to stick to packing non-essentials…
…and oddly enough, that does mean my yarn. I’ve left out one ball for my next project (yes, another pair of socks), but the rest of the yarn is all packed up.
Burton was pretty intrigued by all the space that had opened up in the studio closet. Just wait until he sees all the closet space in the new house!
