So much paper! I looked at EVERY piece of paper that was in those boxes! I had three piles, one for keeping, one for trashing, and one for sensitive papers I need to shred before recycling. In the end I had one bankers box of letters, old statements from distributors, writings, and various bits and bobs that I thought I should keep. I realized I moved some really junky stuff like People magazines from 2003. What do I want with that? I let go of a LOT of things! I really don’t need it. And it takes up so much room.
I have two boxes left which really just need some adjusting and then they can be put back in the corner with the other stuff I am moving. I don’t have so much now, it’s mostly archived video tapes. And film reels. And books.
Next it’s the upstairs room. I have another big box of stuff in my room, and some other things. Just clutter stuff that I can put in a better place.
We also did some speckling and Mom painted, I have to clean the fan, Deanna cleaned the sun porch, we have to move Mom’s office downstairs and the bedroom upstairs and a bed in another room over to another room. Whew!
The more I can pack to put away in storage for future moving to Toronto, the better. I might have to store stuff for about two and a half months between when Mom and I move to the condo and when I leave Saskatoon for good. But if most of my stuff is ready to go, it will simplify my life, and give me more time for looking for a place in Toronto and also getting my back taxes done. AND I have a grant I have to finish up here too!
Busy busy busy beaver!
