So I am so frustrated and so over this moving thing!! We wanted to be all packed up and have our house all spic and span by May 1st. HA!! We missed that objective by a long shot.
I am happy though because we have known for a while we would be moving, therefore, having ample time to sort and sift and get rid of A LOT of unnecessary items and throw away a lot of junk. Josh and both decided we hate stuff and want to take as little as possible with us! You don't understand...we live in a 5 bedroom house with every room being full!! We are getting rid of a small village!! I have narrowed Carter's toys down to one plastic tote. This boy had more toys than all the children in Africa have combined. (oh that is sad) I should send them there. I am now inclined to give that tote away too and just start anew once we get there. Then I look at a toy and get all emotional because Carter smiled at it once and can't imagine how I could give it away. Get a grip woman!!
Here is the basement family room. We used it for Carter's playland and I am sad I didn't take pictures of it when it was a happy place. The stuff in the very back we are keeping...the rest is going!!
The storage room. If you can believe it, it did have order at one point. Now it is just a monstrosity. I am keeping the bassinet (one of my favorite baby items)..the rest can go.
So here are a few pictures of the hazards I am facing right now. Slowly but surely we are getting there!! UGH!!!!!!!!!!! I really don't want to continue. I am thinking of dowsing a little gasoline and striking a match and slowly backing away...actually quickly would probably be best.
