Our Move: Packing
In just a few days we will be moving to a new apartment. It’s been 4.5 years since we last moved and, in that time, I have forgotten just how much work it is. Here are some photos of the process. (Taken with my, first ever, new to me, iPhone – we are a little late to the game.)
I started with books since they are straight forward. I thought I would easily be able to fit all of our books in neat stacks on the kitchen table, but this is what it looked like about two-thirds of the way through the process:
I packed a few boxes and finished stacking all of our beautiful books, leaving empty shelves:
I made sure to keep one book out the boxes, my next read for when I finish “Notes From A Small Island” by Bill Bryson
Eventually, most of the books were packed:
All of this moving and stacking made Cordelia worry a bit:
I assured her we would not leave her behind.
My next task was assembling all of our tchotchkes in one place. I’m just getting started…
The boxes are stacking up, which makes it hard to maneuver around our kitchen, but it is a welcome sign of progress and new beginnings.
More on the move and our new place coming soon!
