Packing a little *too* well

Today, I spent a few hours in Baby Gurl's room. We played the ole Keep/Toss game. I admit we kept a lot more than we tossed. And if we stick with the Man Beast's rule of three boxes, this Mom is going to have to get creative!

The Boy got his room completely packed up yesterday. Completely. He did such a good job of packing yesterday, that he was searching through his boxes to find a pencil today.


We have never been this organized in moving - ever. And I've been known to move my fair share. I've been moving on average, every two years since I was a child. I know how it's done. Well, I know how it's usually done. At least in my circle.

1. Decide you want to move at the last minute.
2. Pack at the last minute.
3. Move at the last minute.
4. Clean at the last minute.

I've been doing it a bit different this time around. I'm packing three weeks early! To be honest, I'm just not quite sure what to do with myself. Aside from the pencil incident today with The Boy, it's amazing how much you can do without!

Maybe this should be a clue that we really don't need everything we're hanging onto.

Interesting theory. Of course, it won't fly with the Man Beast. So, of course, since I'm such a Godly striving to be a Godly wife, I'll shape my will to his will (while still being in His will), and find my creative, inventive side and do what I do best - make due.

Now, if I had it my way, we'd probably do what Dear Linda's husband wants to do and sell everything and start fresh.

But then again, I've covered why that's not such a good idea.


  1. Moving and packing ugh!!! is all that I can say. Not one of my favorite things. I have sometimes thought of adopting the Asian way of life they depict on movies. Nothing much. But, then I have to think about getting rid of all that stuff and I don't. lol

    ps. I was looking through the CWO website I am engrossed to say the least. (my dishes may never get done)

  2. {rofl} I just about spit out my coffee. Wheres that windex?--Anyhoo, so, want to make that drive to Alabama and help the Gatorfam? What's that? NO? (ROFL) Aw, come on, We could go get Tammy and make it a party. smiles

  3. CWO is a great website. I suspect many a moms have failed to get their dishes done due to the site. LOL

    Linda, love ya girl, but have absolutely no interest in helping the Gator Family move anymore than you're interested in moving the Turtle Family (this is why I didn't ask...figured I'd save my breath).



Thank you for taking the time to comment. I know how precious your time is and I appreciate you spending a few seconds with me.
