As you well know,
Unlike the other 12 moves of my life,
this one is NOT local and everything has to go in one swoop.
So we pack,
and pack some more.
I tried cleaning out my nail polish stash,
I threw out a few bottles,
and marveled at my tendency to stick with the same basic colors.
I've piled books into boxes,
only to discover they're too heavy to lift on my own.
This is why we hire movers ;)
I've sorted through years of brewery glasses,
festival glasses, tasting glasses, "gifts" and giveaways,
wrapped the ones we wanted delicately,
and put them into boxes.
Who needs fancy juice glasses and matching tumblers,
when you have 812 pint glasses?
I've had "help" from the cats:
and some from Shiva
but little by little, the boxes are getting filled.
You really have no clue how much STUFF you have,
until you try to put it in boxes.
This is going to be a loooooooooooong process,
but it'll be worth it in the end.
