September - Labor day weekend.
We purged and packed the dinning room.
I am still going thru papers and shredding documents. My husband asked if I was purging 40 years of papers. I think it just feels like it. I don't really have 40 years worth. I hope.
I had a hard time purging items from the dinning room. I love linens - of course they are fabric. So it was hard to let some of them go. I love dishes and teapot and cups. I let some of them go but very likely kept more than I should have. Thank God for the organizer and my daughter and daughter-in-law who helped me.
Oh, and cookbooks. What is it about cookbooks? I have collected them for years and hardly ever use them but I do enjoy looking at them. I let many of them go and tried to sell some but most ended up at Goodwill. I hope I don't buy them back.
We have also been eating out of the freezer. We have had many interesting meals. But I am attempting to get most of the food gone so we do not have to move it. This is really not good for my diet.
When my husband ask what I wanted to do today I told him it was Labor Day and we would be laboring. Go purge and pack a box. So far he has packed 1/2 of a box and purged nothing. I am currently attempting to talk him into a storage unit so we are not living with packed boxes all around for the next month +.
It is going to be a hard move.
