We’re waiting, still, for word on the house. In the meanwhile, we’re starting preparation to move and realizing that we have too much junk. I’m going to aggressively freecycle anything we can because I don’t want to move this stuff. Old computer parts, old game components (hubby is a gamer), old books from my myriad interests, heavy stuff that takes up tons of space and isn’t worthy of being schlepped around one more time.
So this week begins the big toss out/freecycle effort. It’s amazing how much junk we accumulate in our homes, even if we’ve only been there a few years (4 years for us). Despite the lack of storage in this place, we’ve managed to squirrel away loads of stuff that has to be sorted and packed or tossed/given away.
Even if we don’t get the house (which of course, we WILL), this massive clean out is long over due. The beauty of moving is that we’ll get a clean slate, a chance to do things right from the beginning. An organized space from the ground up. I wonder how many people move just because they are sick of dealing with their current house? That’s not why we are moving, but it sure is a nice fringe benefit to have a chance to start fresh and organized.
Oh, and I’m going to be Ms. Polly Sunshine in the new neighborhood, taking the first step by meeting neighbors and being neighborly. I screwed it up with the current neighbors so I’m going to do it right this time. Mayberry here I come!
