Tomorrow the movers arrive to start packing. Today, we are going about preparing things for that arrival.
*putting things back out that went away for the ‘declutter’ but which we want the movers to pack
*packing our suitcases for the time we will be between houses, which includes prep-ing our carry-on
*emptying things – trash, freezer, fridge
*packing things we want to pack, rather than letting the movers do it
*trying to arrange the things the movers need to leave
*and otherwise organizing our lives for the next few weeks, including various contingency planning.
I have to admit to not contingency planning anywhere near what I normally would (I think I pack more for weekend than I have for the next couple of weeks), given we will be staying … next to the mall. Underware? Don’t worry about how many pair, I can always pick up some. Books? Um, well, two, if I need another there is a Chapters attached to the hotel. Clothes? Well, I won’t bother packing a ‘nice’ shirt, I can always get one.
One thing I’m not so blase about is the packed knitting. It has been arranged thusly:
*Nanners and Viper Pilots in my purse
*Oyster Bay is in my bag of varia which will probably eventually contain my computer
*Secret Project and Stricken in my suitcase
This, of course, does not mean that I won’t be yarn crawling as soon as I arrive…
More tomorrow – I have to go put two boxes of stuff back out in my room…
