This is the New Life - Same as the Old Life
I'll be moving to Massachusetts around the middle of March. Although this is a change we have been looking forward to for some time there is still some panic in the actual preparation. We have gone through all of the books about forty times. The last of the rejects have been sold to Half Price Books and the keepers are all boxed up and out of the way. I think this has been the worst part of the preparations. I never thought I'd see the day when Shana has as many books as I do, but I was ruthless in thinning the herd. The combination of moving by the pound and drastically reduced living space has done the trick, although it has literally taken months to go through them one at a time.
We've planned a beachy break to Maui prior to the actual move, although that is beginning to look iffy. We may not be able to make the timing work this year after all.
