Is it too early to pack?
My husband & his family are making fun of me, we are 2 months out and I’ve already began packing the suitcases. Actually I’ve barely started packing, but started accumulating items for the move; scourging the thrift stores for extra large suitcases (since we’re only bringing 6), scanning Craigslist for boxes & dog crates, sending group texts to neighbors to collect newspaper, buying packaging tape… Its true, I am a planner, but with all there is to do “I don’t feel like this is too early!”, I say with a defiant stomp…well, at least that’s how it gets played out in my head.
I’d like to do more, but Kharron isn’t convinced that getting our storage space this early is necessary. I’ve never done a move like this. When I moved from Northern to Southern California, everything I owned fit in my Honda. I didn’t have kids to worry over, I didn’t have a whole house worth of belongings to compact into a 15 x 10 space, and I couldn’t just call my mommy if I forgot anything.
Now my and Ze’s closets contain no shorts nor sundresses…I think that’s a fair start.
