We just moved. We bought a house in the next town over and we spent the whole weekend moving. The house is on a quiet street in a quiet neighborhood (so far). It has a lovely tree in the front yard and the right amount of bedrooms. However.
I hate moving, and moving while pregnant is worse. My feet hurt pretty bad by the end of the day and I got tired more quickly. I also kept wondering what I should lift and what I shouldn't.
We still have a couple loads to get at the old house. You know the random stuff that piles up in a house you don't really need to survive, but you can't really throw away? That's the stuff that's left. It's made me think a lot about how to simplify my life. All this stuff is merely stuff. I want less of it. Except for books.
Moving takes weeks and months to do. I've decided that my strategy is to do a room at a time. I can handle that. When I think about everything we need to do for the whole house, I freak. But one room I can do. So on Tuesday night, I got our bedroom together. Yesterday, I got the kitchen in order. Today? Hopefully I can get to the living room. I think this strategy should apply to my life in general. When I have it presentable, I'll post pictures.
