The Packing Has Begun!

With our move to England just a couple of months away, we decided to make a start at packing -- deciding what to take, what to store, and what to give away. I had a tough time putting shirts into piles until I realized that I couldn't remember a single shirt I had given to Goodwill when I moved from California to Texas. As long as I have things to keep warm while in Durham.

The book-packing is moving along too. Kathy and I developed a technique of grouping the books according to size and forming "book blocks" that fit nicely into boxes. I think I may have overdone the packing efficiency, though -- the boxes are kinda heavy to lift!

As I recall, every shirt you owned had sentimental value. Try not to sink the ship, okay?

I was thinking about the sentimentality of my was so difficult to part with some of them before heading from California to Texas, yet now that I'm here I can't remember a single one of my dear shirts! I'll be headed to England with only the ones that Crystal likes. :-)
