So as they dropped boxes in the living room, I had to fish for the important ones I needed first and run them all one after the other upstairs to the bedroom and to the office. I ran so many boxes up those stairs over and over that my leg muscles are still quivering. I'm no longer able to stand or walk for long periods of time. Thank goodness I don't do any teaching until Friday.
With most of what I own still in boxes, my life feels scattered and disjointed. But we are also temporarily enjoying the lack of clutter. I did get rid of a ton of stuff as I packed and I will continue to try and get rid of more as I unpack. I don't want to own so much stuff. My share of the movers was $900. In a way, I just paid $900 to keep everything I own. And that's just silly.
