I have officially reached the “burn all the belongings and start over again” phase of packout preparation. The hassle of organizing all my stuff, the prospect of unpacking and reorganizing all of it in Washington, and the worry about something getting damaged or going missing en route has reached a point where I just want to burn it or toss it all out and start over. Of course, I won’t do that. It’d be too expensive for one thing. And, it’d be hard to burn the stuff without setting the whole apartment on fire. Still. I’m ready for this whole move thing to be done. I’m a little bummed that I’ll probably miss out on the fun Canada Day festivities since I’ll be busy with packing prep, but so it goes.
Other than that, things are going well. I’ve gotten a bunch of giant ziploc bags and ziploc totes and they’re making the organization part of packing a bit easier. Hopefully, they’ll both protect my stuff from dust and moisture, and also keep the things I want to stay together, together. So, for example, the fitted sheet doesn’t end up in one box and the flat sheet and pillow cases in another. We shall see.
And, there are plenty of things at work to sort out, too. Lots of loose ends to tie up and lots of administrative hoops to jump through before I can make it out of here. And preparations for the 4th of July party. But, it’s moving along.
So, that’s what’s new here. I think the next stage of packout preparation is the “wine” phase. 😉
