There are closets in every room of this house. And they are full of Stuff.
My bedroom has 2 massive closets.. full.
I thought I would be super organized and pack some things now - like my handbags and shoes that I won't need upon arrival to a Warm climate ... doesn't that sound lovely ... Warm Climate ~
I thought I had a lot of big boxes left from the move here. I found one, it was filthy , I had to clean it before bringing it up from the basement.
It is full of boxes of shoes and handbags.
Yet I look at the closet and It is full of shoes and handbags !
Hey ! What's going on ?
I have to call the mover and request boxes. Otherwise, I am sitting here and time is passing by and nothing is getting done.
I went on to the chore of deciding what things to throw away.
Then it will be easier/faster to pack. No decisions.
My need for neatness and organization was satisfied when I was able to put many sweaters and things in "garment" bags that I bought at the dollar store.
I will be back there tomorrow for a few more.
They are great, they mean you can put all of one kind of article in a clean lightweight zipped up bag that will fold and go into a box. I got plastic ones that are like giant Baggies that are a thicker tougher plastic and they zip close and you can pile those into a bag without worry of wrinkles or dust or whatever. And I love arriving somewhere, opening the bag, taking out the ziplocks and tossing them in drawers .. Whether a trip or a move .. they are so handy and work so well. Your clothes don't wrinkle as much or any and they stay clean.
My things will be on a truck to Florida then in storage if I don't find a place immediately.
So I will have to stay in a hotel or a temporary rental.
Thanks to my daughter .. there are temporary rentals that are super appealing to me.
Picture a castle with walls lol ... well, just picture the walls .. the big gates that no one can come in without knowing the Password .
The cats will love it. screened in rooms with grass and lakes and birds just waiting to tease a little house cat. Or a big sleepy magical cat.
I want a loft apartment. one huge room with a bedroom and bath. Semi loft ?
Minette actually slept with me last night .. like a sleepy baby she got in bed and went to sleep.
I was afraid to move this morning, she was sleeping so well.
Merlin lies down and that's it til morning. He is the Best when it comes to a good quiet boy at night time.
I don't know why but I have this urge to shop online tonight.
Sephora ... When I am in Jacksonville, I can shop in person at Lush ... do you know Lush ?
Do you like Lush ?
My husband would refuse to go inside to shop, the smell made him queasy :)
I love it.
I will also have a spree at L'Occitane ... do you like L'Occitane ?
I keep thinking today is Saturday .. if it is Friday, I must be in New York :)
But I still haven't made a dent in the packing ..
