Learned a HUGE lesson between yesterday’s actions and today’s observations. When you are sorting for packing versus packing to store versus giving away – remember to leave stuff out for the interim.
Gregory was getting ready for school today and there were no underwear, socks, any outside clothes left in his room – only PJs. I had to sort through the give away pile as well as the packing pile until we found clothes he could wear today (high of 14 degrees Celsius). I then realized I had not left anything out for myself.
So…lesson learned. Have a 4th pile within your 3 step process – otherwise you may wind up with no choices whatsoever.
Tomorrow is our 2nd and last ever garage sale here. I believe we’ve had a garage sale every year since I was pregnant with Gregory – so 10 years now! It is a huge amount of work but so much fun. Our bedroom set is being picked up (sold months ago) and tomorrow night we’ll be camping on the floor mat. It’s becoming real. And the most wonderful things is that I’m smiling as I type this. We’re in the last stages of this chapter and I’m starting to truly feel the excitement of this next chapter….the unknown within the known.
