We are moving into our first home.
The house is about 35 minutes away and closer to the church, so we are moving in stages at the moment. This translates into some measure of chaos at both homes.
I hate moving, but so far things have been going fairly well and I have come to appreciate a few things.
Thankful for my Wife
Whatever the opposite of a hoarder is that is my wife. If we aren’t using it the item finds its way to Goodwill or Craig’s List. I used to joke about how clothes of mine would disappear but now as I pack I am appreciate her diligence.
What this is teaching me is that I need less than I thought. It is easy to accumulate things, and even harder to get rid of those things once you have them.
I Could Use a Kindle
Amazon needs to create a sponsorship deal with U-Haul. Slap promo pictures of the e-reading device on their boxes and I guarantee they would see an increase in sales. Books look great on the shelf, but they make for heavy boxes.
Nice Things Aren’t Worth it
We went shopping for a new couch and love seat last night and bought some relatively cheap pieces. We didn’t buy the cheapest thing we saw, but we definitely stayed in our budget.
I don’t want to live in fear of spilling or tearing something because it will happen eventually. It looks fine and is comfortable, what else do we need?
