Boxes, Boxes, Boxes Everywhere!

Whew! I know I haven't done a lot of updates lately, but I've been busy busy busy! My garage isn't totally full of boxes anymore, but there are still boxes in most of my rooms. It is so frustrating! Even my living room has boxes in it still, even though I use it. I did have my kitchen clear, until I got a giant box of Pampered Chef stuff yesterday!

Originally, I had a goal of a box a day. Then I remembered how much was in every box and realized how unrealistic that was right now! I went through three boxes yesterday, and I sorted a HUGE box out into two smaller boxes today. I am frustrated that I didn't pack as well as I had hoped, and I had all kinds of stuff to toss away. I've been working on being practical - did I use it in the past year? No? It goes away. It's very liberating.

In other news... my junior high students present their musical on Friday. It means I haven't much time for anything which is really frustrating. I did get to hang out with Josh Friday night, which makes me happy. I'm ready for all of my commitments this year to be over so I can enjoy more free time!
