30 days...

This is what my downstairs playroom is starting to look like. We have 30 days until we plan to be fully packed and then pick up our moving truck to get it loaded. I should feel stressed, but I don't yet. We have a deadline, and have been doing a little bit each day. It has been surprisingly nice to pack, because it has forced me to go through things I haven't gone through in a VERY LONG time. When the military moves you, you don't really worry about how many boxes you have because it's their dime. But with us moving ourselves, it's a completely different story. We are having a yard sale with some friends next weekend, and if we don't sell it, it's all going to the goodwill. And I feel like we're getting rid of a lot. So it feels really nice! So as much as it is a pain to move ourselves, I will be shocked if we haven't gone down in the pounds category when the military moves us again!
