Destination England

Our journey from debt to England…and everything in between!

Packing, Packing, Packing

with 2 comments

This weekend was our final weekend in our current apartment.  We didn’t get quite as much packed as I would have liked, but we made a dent.  In some ways our living abode looks like an English town after the blitz!  In other ways, it’s beginning to look sparse.  So far we’ve made a bit of a dent:

  • Packed up all the living room items, save for the TV, DVD player, and Cable box.
  • Packed up nonessentials in the kitchen.
  • Dining area is packed up, and laundry area is done.
  • Bathroom is packed save for our day to day items
  • Bedroom desk is half clear, and one closet is completely emptied.
  • All boxes not currently being packed have been moved to the garage.

The living room still looks “livable” which I suppose it will until we move.  Our sectional sofa takes up so much space that I doubt the room will look empty until it is gone. The with the bedroom; our bed, the baby’s crib, desk, and glider all take up prime real estate.  Outside of that, everything else is pretty well packed.  Some things we have left to do:

  • Pack up baby’s closet
  • Tear down crib
  • Finish boxing everything in the bedroom that is non essential.
  • On moving day, pack up all “non essential” items
  • Clean

Once we settle in at the new apartment, I know there will likely be another great purge.  Our biggest concern has been packing, and getting everything ready to go.  The great thing is that we can put stuff away, and once we get to where we think it should be whatever is left we can evaluate and get rid of.  Overall, packing is a chore!

  2. Good Luck to the three of you, in your move Jason, if I could be there to lend a hand or three, you know I would be the first one there from this side of the pond. I will be thinking of you all this week (and saying a little prayer, that all goes smoothly). Love you all so very much, and so looking forward to seeing you all at the end of the month. It seems so long ago, since we were there with you, everyone say’s this 1st half of the year is going so quickly, Huh, it’s been the longest five months of my y y y y LIFE. Thinking of you and loving you all soooooo verrrrry much.
