Things

Here's the scenario and I'm writing it this way because I couldn't think of any other way to do it. So here goes:

1) You have to move from your house
2) You can only take what will fit in your car
3) The rest of the stuff you can retrieve at a later time

What do you take?

For those of you who have often wondered what you would take but, unlike Yours Truly, have stayed put in one place OR have moved with newfangled things like U-Hauls and such, here's a look at some of the things I took and the process by which I decided I was taking them.

First of all, I knew all five of my dogs had to go with me. That really cut back the room in my Mom-Mobile (a.k.a. The Station Wagon) so I knew I'd have to limit the items I took and pack them carefully.

Next, I went through my entire house and picked out all the Yard Sale items. Things that probably shouldn't have made the trip with me TO New Mexico would NOT be going back with me.

After that, I sorted out what I absolutely needed to take with me and what could stay at Mom's until I could get it later.

Things like:
-books
-movies
-magazines
-art
-home decor
-bookshelves
were not going with me.

So here's some things I DID take:
CLOTHES
CALENDAR
ANKLE BRACES (which ended up being a good choice since I sprained my ankle the other day)
DESK STUFF - pictures, files, notes, etc.
DOWN COMFORTERS
NM SUN DECOR
PIG w/ money
SHOES
TV BUNNY EARS
EMILY'S BIRTHDAY PRESENT
TOOL BOX
SOME PAPERWORK
TOWELS
DOG FOOD, BOWLS, LEASHES
DOGS

I spent part of this afternoon (after being at my Temporary Place of Employment this morning) unpacking some of my car. But unfortunately with my age of 25 comes my lack of desire to COMPLETE a project, especially one that doesn't HAVE to be done right now. Plus, I mean, I did work-out once today and walk a couple miles with the dogs - on a sprained ankle. So, I'll finish unpacking my plethora of unusual and what-I-thought-necessary items tomorrow...or the next day.

Yes, NM sun decor is VERY important when you're transient. You never know when you'll need to whip out a good wall hanging.
