Literally! Gotta write about what you know, right? And we are knee deep in packing boxes and trying to organize for our big move in 2 1/2 weeks. Friends told me of hiring movers that will pack for you (who pack into boxes garbage cans, dirty diapers and all!) but we are packing it up ourselves. The problem with this is when perfectionism sneaks in. For example- I don't want to take any clutter to the new house (hahaha) so I am TRYING to organize everything first. Which if you know me, that is kind of funny. I am a right-brained person and organization is not exactly my forte. I like to be organized though and am doing ok! Getting rid of loads of toys and clothes. The good news is that we have an overlap since we have already bought the new house and don't have to be out of this one for a couple of weeks so every time we go over to the new house we take a box of various items. We are busy making exuecutive decisions --- a full bath and closet add-on has been postponed in favor of having some california closets installed (since it is an older home with LITTLE closet space) and using the money we save to do some other stuff like painting (creamy mocha to cover the vanderbilt gold currently there) and building a deck with screened porch, etc. Just thought I would check in. Off to go through my closet now. UGH!
