Unsettling Discovery

I am on day five of seriously packing... and I really am dismayed to discover that we have too much cr*p. This will be our third move in 18 months... yes you read that right... 3rd move. I am almost to the point that I say we chuck it all and go from here with nothing...well except my scrapbooking stuff... that of course has to go. That room is 99% packed. I packed the linen closet a few minutes ago... and I discovered that we don't have good towels... we have about 567 mismatched dingy towels... I don't even remember where they all came from. I packed 5 boxes of towels and sheets from the linen closet. These are "most" of the boxes from the scrapbook/craft/office

I am really really really dreading packing the rest of Carson's room. I packed all the videos that we are not taking on the trip. I have sorted to some extent all the cars, airplanes, little jiggy stuff that little boys seem to treasure so much. I bought a million plastic shoe boxes to keep it all together instead of a huge pile of toys. I have tried to throw things away... but it is difficult when he is "helping" me pack all his stuff. It doesn't help that he has 9785 billion matchbox cars. I think that they multiply at night... they breed just like stuffed animals. I am ready to be back is killing me from lifting and moving all the boxes after they are packed. Please tell me this will all be worth it... remind me why... why we need all this stuff!

Carson's Room..... it is a very scary place right now!

I am running out of places to put all the packed boxes and still be able to walk around. I would move all of them to the garage... but I would have to clean it out first.

Just hang in there. It will be all worth it when you have your family back together again. Take care.
