It begins

Today. I start the arduous task of packing.
It had to happen sometime.
I spent the last week at work collecting boxes. I got so many one night you couldn't see Roxie through the boxes. Hospitals are good for that.
The good thing about packing is that you always seem to find something you love that was lost, but, yet. You didn't realize it was lost. Until you found it, and then you wonder why you never missed it.
Also, it is a chance to get rid of tons of stuff.
All that is fine with me.
I just don't enjoy the task of it, though.
It signifies the end of something.
And, while I am very excited over the house, and all that goes with it, I have to tell you. I LOVED my apartment. I was happy there. It's vaulted ceilings, its warm rock fire place, roomy balcony, kitchen done in avocado green. It is a great apartment.
But, it also comes with weird neighbors, loud neighbor kids who own a drum set, karaoke machine, and trombone, and a very trafficky street.
I've been there since 02. I left it rather abruptly when MG came back here to live. And I don't regret it, in the least bit.
But, now.
It is time to start saying goodbye to my apartment.
as I pack.
and find things.

I kind of enjoy packing... but NOT unpacking.

I can't imagine going back to an apartment. You won't miss it after a while.

Good luck! A new chapter is starting. You don't have to forget the old.

I LOVE to UNpack, but packng drives me nuts. Unpacking is fun, because there's a whole new way to put things just as you like them in somewhere new.
I do not want to be in your packing shoes right now!
But finding stuff is always fun!

I hate packing.....still have boxes in the basement. There should be a rule that you get all new things when you move. Just start over fresh......

I packing more than I hate cleaning and that's saying a lot.

OTOH .. the tossing out of things you realize you never use is a good thing if you can do it.. me? Not so much. If we ever move our apartment I think I would have to hire someone to do it for me.. I am a keeper, a hoarder ... bad Daryl.

Be good to your hand .. and back ..

I hate packing, but it will be so cool when you're in your own place.
