Moving in Stages

I suppose I could also call this post The Stages of Moving, lol!

Yesterday I sorted through my clothes into summer-clothes-to-wear-now, summer clothes-that-are-too-small-but-will-fit-next-year, fall/winter-clothes to send South and fall/winter-clothes- to-wear-this-fall.

Clothes going South in the U-Haul in three weeks got packed into boxes and stacked in the family room with the rest of the packed boxes.

Everything I am keeping here has to fit into two rubber maid trunks. Clothes staying with me got packed into a big rubbermaid trunk. Hats, shoes and my handcraft projects go into the other rubbermaid trunk.

I am keeping about 1/4 of my clothes and the rest are going South where they will wait in storage for me to join them.

It makes me think about why I have so much stuff if I can so easily live without it for the next 6 months.

I packed up my sewing nook, too. Now everything is gone except for a few projects to finish over the summer, my sister’s big quilt that I’m hand quilting and some knitting. It’s going to be a long six months without my sewing room.

Here’s Misty, checking everything out for size.

Kelly and Michael drive the U-Haul out in only 20 days from today. Wow!
