I started with some of the books on our bookshelf...we have a lot of books. Then I moved on to the decorations I have above our kitchen cabinets...the real frivolous stuff. It looks so sad and bare now! It isn't like I thought I was going to win any apartment-decorating awards or anything, but it sure feels less like a home and more like a dumb apartment now. I took most of the photos off the wall in the living room too just to fill the box I was working on and so now it is really looking sad in here.
I'm going to need a ton of boxes. Really, you never think you have that much until you try to pack it all up! Then there are going to be all the trips to move all of those millions of boxes (not to mention furniture!) I would say it is depressing except that we are excited for a change, a little bigger space, and we are moving into a first-floor apartment. Plus this apartment (3rd floor) has an elevator! Lucky! Still it will be moving in the July Texas heat. And unlike when we moved in, things aren't tucked in nice and neat in their original boxes. Sigh.
So if it seems that there is less blogging (and by that I mean adorable pictures of Leo) than normal in the next few weeks, it is probably because I am trying to make sense of everything we own...minus a few things that are being stored at our parents' homes...thank goodness for that!
Wish us luck!
