What I Have Learned From Moving: A List in Three Acts

Prelude: The packing began in earnest today. The countdown is 13 days until I have to be completely ready to move.

Act I: Morning
  • I have too many papers.
  • I have too many books.
  • I have too many candles.
  • I have too much yarn.
Act II: Noon
  • I have too many pictures.
  • I have too many clothes.
  • I have too many pillows (odd, right?)
  • I have too much yarn.
Act III: Night
  • I have too many shoes.
  • I have too many dishes.
  • I have too many CDs
  • I have too much yarn.
Epilogue: In my next life, I want to be a minimalist. And only to buy the yarn I'm going to use.

Ha! I recently moved and felt the same exact way. However I do have to ask - can you really ever have too much yarn???

Congrats on the new digs. Moving is quite a lot of work. I think people settle down and remain in one place when they've accumulated too much stuff to be tempted to move to a new place.
