In case you were wondering, attics are hot in Austin in May.
And packing takes a long, long time.
I decided to break down the packing situation into areas of the house where I had the most stuff.
So I started with my bedroom and bathroom which took a whole weekend. Next I tackled the kitchen, which only took about one evening. (I was the last roommate to move in, so the kitchen was pretty well stocked when I arrived.) This is the resulting pile of boxes, with odds and ends thrown on top.
Shout out to Spec’s and my friends for providing boxes.
Next was the attic. It was hot. It was dark. Thanks to my roommate Ute for providing a head lamp (mine was packed) and moral support. It only took about an hour for me to find and extricate the things I had put up there. I pleasantly rediscovered that I own a toaster (thanks Ellen!), a microwave, and a vacuum.
And so the pile grew ever larger.
The last major project will be the garage and greenhouse, where I keep many a gardening accoutrement. It never ceases to amaze me how packing is always a never-ending saga. And I don’t even have that much stuff!
