It has been a Very Crazy month! In my last post about packing I said we should just sell it all, I am thinking now that burning it all would be much less hassle! I had 3 yard-sales and listed numerous items on the face book marketplace. Wow, I’ll just say FB marketplace is not for the faint of heart (or for the non Spanish speaking)! I have never answered so many messages or repeated my self so many times!
I have been purging and selling and trashing and purging some more. As moving day got closer and closer I donated and sold even more, It is very eye opening to realize how little you really need to live.
As we started packing the camper and packing the items to store I realized again that there are no precious items. I took 2 trailer loads of stuff to Gift & Thrift and gifted items to friends and threw out even more. Oh It is ridicules how much stuff one family can accumulate. The irony of this is, it is not the first time we have moved, its not even the 5th or 10th time !!!!
On the last couple days before we pulled out, a couple good friends came over and helped me wrap up the final details. One stopped in with doughnuts and folded laundry, one of them packed the last items into the camper from the kitchen and bathroom, and the other started sweeping through bedrooms and helping me finish the last purging, donating, and trashing!
On the morning we headed for Texas, our good friends D&M showed up and brought doughnuts! They helped us finish up all the last min details and snapped pictures for us as we pulled out.. There were tears as we waved goodbye to them and our Virginia life!
It has been a truly crazy but blessed and enlightening month. If I can pass any advice along it would be , “hold nothing to tightly especially if it could bless someone else”!
