We are down to less than 10 boxes! Considering we brought 77 packed-to-the-brim boxes with us, I’m pretty proud of that accomplishment. Some evenings when I get home after work, the LAST thing I want to do is unpack another box, but I hear my mother’s voice saying “Do the Next Thing,” and if I’m around my children, I think of Dory on Nemo…”just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming” Even if I only open or unpack ONE box, I instantly feel more productive. Last night, I opened TWO, so it was a good day!
I will opening admit, that in some cases, I’ve just moved boxes to the inner recesses of our closet, where I’m sure they’ll sit for months, but I’m okay with that. Hopefully, once we have a break from school, I’ll do a purge and just get rid of things. I think one of the blessings of downsizing, is that I will get rid of even more STUFF. I’m glad to know that my treasure is in heaven, and not in all the boxes we’ve been going through!
