So today I barely got on at all. Mostly, I packed boxes.
I've been dreading this day for a while, really... the day I had to start packing up my room. Man... I knew I had a lot of stuff, but wow do I have a lot of stuff! I'm really not sure how I can possibly pack it all in boxes by Wednesday (which is when we're painting my room), but at least I have most of my books packed. When I complained to Dad that I wanted to keep some out to read, he told me to keep three and buy more if I run out. I told him that defeated the purpose of packing all my books.
My room is going to look so empty without bookshelves. It's already starting to look like it isn't mine.
We also finally moved all the furniture, which is kind of a pain because now I have nowhere to put my socks and stuff. But at least we're making progress... it's strange. I've had that dresser my whole life, and we just gave it to the Good Will. I sort of wonder if I'll miss it, as crappy as it was.
Going through all my stuff is like a flashback on my life... I discovered some old notes from the time I was at Bradley University, that a friend and I had written back and forth to each other during our biology class. I laughed so much... I miss her. I also found my frikin' Japanese/English dictionary that I've been missing for 6 months, gah. I'm SO HAPPY I found it, but annoyed that it took such an extreme clean-up to uncover it. I need to have a better system than the 'drop things on the floor' method, clearly.
We're hoping to have the house finished and on the market by early June, if not sooner, and that's about when I'll move to Souix Falls.
Man. Less than a month. How did that happen so fast?
