Moving and stuff…

It’s finally scheduled–moving day is Wednesday. A couple other bloggers who I keep tabs on are also in various states of move. Ron and Debra have too much stuff. Susan and Peter are making a big move and saying goodbye to a beloved urban area. Mary has many books (I’d like to challenge her to a book weigh-in versus me and Erik!), and also a good reminder to be humble about our humanity and accept the generosity offered by others.

We’re blessed with a full-service moving company for this move, packing included, but I am still convinced there are some things that need to be done. Yesterday’s small victory–I made it through four boxes that have been in the back of the closet since we moved here 3 years ago. Among other things, it turns out I did not need the 15 bottles of expired vitamins I found there (don’t ask…). Today, I’d like to attack a few more unorganized swathes of bedroom and try to at least get things into their appropriate rooms before the movers box things up. But I could also make sure all my knitting supplies are in one place, throw out old magazines so that they don’t move with us, box up some clothing, and vacuum the cat hair off the couch. It’s also a really nice day out, and my last Saturday officially living a few blocks from Lake Michigan–time at the beach is tempting, too.
Oh, and then there’s the Sunday sermon to spend a few final hours on…
