I'm having a rough day. Maybe it's because David had to go back to work today. Maybe it's because I'm off my routine. Maybe it's because I'm having to put Christmas decorations away. Maybe...
I know what it is, and it's absolutely, without a doubt, completely me being superficial. Hayden had a fantastic Christmas, no doubt. I had to go buy some storage containers today so we could pack up all the little pieces so they don't get lost. When we move in six months, I'll need a way to safely transport his toys until we get settled and buy something like this:
What does that have to do with anything you wonder? Well, I'm in the middle of putting away all of the Christmas decorations and trying to somewhat organize them because we are taking only those absolute keepsakes with us to Vancouver. Do you know how much stuff you can fit in a 2200 sq. ft. house? I do. And althought it's just STUFF, it's somewhat heartbreaking to look around and realize, "Wow, I have to buy 'this' and 'that' when we move, and those aren't going."
This move is the perfect opportunity to update some things in our house as it would cost us nearly triple to ship it as it would to just replace it. I'm going to have to part with quite a bit of stuff and it shouldn't be so hard, but it is.
Please don't think less of me after reading this. I know how superficial it sounds; I'm ashamed. But on the plus side, I can't wait to finally burn or trash a ton of junk we've just held on to. You know those bits and pieces you stick in a box and either plan to use later or get to later and never do? Yeah.
