I Dream of Boxes: Three Moves in One Week
My eyes have been opened to the junk that surrounds me. And I vow to get rid of it.
Three moves, albeit small ones, over the course of one week are doing me in. My family moved our eldest, affectionately known as One (Mom misspoke one day and the name stuck), into a college sorority house last weekend. An upcoming renovation of the Post's newsroom forced me into the Great Migration to temporary workspace. (A real estate agent might call our tiny new work space a "jewel box.") And this weekend our youngest, Two, moves into a college dormitory. Each is a transition from big space to small space, forcing decisions about which belongings are important, and which aren't worth the space they occupy.
I'm realizing that a lot of the stuff around my home falls into the latter category, and I promise to lighten the load throughout the fall. If you've gone through a successful de-junking and re-prioritizing of your belongings, please, share your stories with the blog. There's always room for good ideas. And they pack well.
