OK, so I failed at A Week in the Life. I don't know what happened, I just couldn't get into it! 

Anyway, we have been packing and packing and packing. I'll admit that pretty much all that's been accomplished is the basement (my sewing/craft room and the kids' toys, along with almost all of our books). I have been told by a reliable source that the craft space and toys are the two hardest areas in a house, because there's just so much stuff to deal with. So hopefully it's only going to get easier from here. 

Before, it was so messy you could hardly work. Now, it just seems lonely.

Packing up the thread. #PicFrame

Packing break. I don't know the last time we went out lunch just the two of us.

Packing up the fabric. I already have one of these tubs full of fabric to give away, too! I'm very proud of myself.

It always seems like when you start packing, things get messier, rather than tidier. I don't know why it is, because you'd think with things being packed away, there would be less mess. But now I remember from the last time we moved. It's kind of crazy!

I have, however, found some things that I thought we'd lost forever, so that has been fun and exciting, and I cleared out a whole ton of stuff that was the kind of last "random" stuff to get shoved into boxes on our last move (things that have just been sitting in boxes ever since then!) So, it's going pretty well, altogether. Moving is such an odyssey!
