Today I spent the day sorting. Well after the nap I took at 9:30 this morning. (Remember the whole not sleeping well thing? Yeah...so I went back to bed and slept until 11:30. It helped.) We have decided that we are going to cargo some stuff back to the states. The majority of the stuff we have here will be put in storage, but there are a few things that I have decided didn't need to stay. Today we spent time separating that stuff out. You should see our salon. On the other hand...no you shouldn't. Please don't come over! Our dining room table is covered. So is the floor between it and the wall. There is a very large duffle bag on one of the couches. The other one is covered with stuffed animals and dolls that the kids have to have in America. If you come over you will have to sit on the floor which desperately needs to be vacuumed. So yeah...don't.
It has actually been good to clean out. I went through the buffet we have in our entryway today. There was so much trash and junk in it! I threw away old dried up playdough, many colored pencils, markers that didn't work, old notebooks, and games that were missing pieces. There were several things that I didn't even recognize in the drawers. If I didn't know what it was and Brian couldn't tell me what it was I threw it away. This could have been done months ago, but I needed the excuse of moving to do it I guess.
There are more cabinets and drawers to go through over the next few days. Then we will have the packing company out to get the things we want to take with us out of here. After that...it will be smooth sailing. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Actually it will be much easier to decide things after that is done, but I have a feeling the waters will be quite choppy. I'll be sure to wear my life vest just in case.
