11 days till I leave for Virginia. I have officially started counting down. I had a wonderful visit with my family. I still can't believe that my dad will be in Afghanistan in a month. This time here in Pensacola has flown by! My sister flew out early this morning which left me awake much earlier than normal with not a lot to do.So I got the itch to clean/organize.
Since we have decided to stay with E's parents for a few months I have decided to pack more than I would if we were moving straight into our own house because anything I don't bring with me will end up in storage. I packed up my craft room today.
I was only supposed to bring a few things but two overflowing rubber maid containers later I think I have everything I want. I took all the picture frames off the wall and put them in a nice neat pile. Hopefully, the packers will put them all together. But they don't always pack in a way that makes sense to me. After I was satisfied with the craft room I moved on to my closet.
I have a lot of clothes but only wear a small portion of it. Some doesn't fit anymore too big or too small. Some of it I just don't like anymore. I really don't have a need for so many semi-formal date dresses. Anyway, I tried on everything I wasn't sure about to see if I felt like it fit nicely or was worth keeping a little longer. I have a pile to donate, pack to take with me, and pack for storage. I really hate getting rid of things because two months later I will frantically be searching for something only to remember I gave it away. But right now it feels good to get rid of the extras.
This is a giveaway pile - for the record for someone who never really worked out until recently I have a large collection of tennis shoes that I have a hard time parting with. There are 3 pair in the pile and I kept two pair that don't include the two that I wear for actual running.
What a productive Saturday!
