That’s what they say anyway… Do you ever reach the point in a move when you just start throwing everything in boxes and resolve to sort through it later at your new home? Well, that’s the point we’re at now. The only problem is that our new home/RV has pretty much reached capacity.

Mission (Not) Accomplished

Long story short, we failed miserably at meeting our goal! We decided to take the kids to the Murakami exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. We actually had a great time, but that meant that we didn’t get anything done with the packing the RV. Sunday we put a lot of [...]

So I have two sewing machines. (Well actually, one is a sewing machine and the other is a serger.) This summer I was planning on buying a coverstitch machine. There’s only one problem: I rarely sew. In the last year, I’ve probably only sewn 1 thing — a pair of pajama pants for [...]

CM & I want EVERYTHING out of the house by Sunday. That’s going to give us a week to get all of the walls painted. It’s a tall order, but I think we can do it. I guess it’s mostly me, because CM is constantly reminding me that all of this stuff [...]

That’s the number of days we have to get out of this apartment. Let me rephrase, that’s the number of days we have to finish separating our clothes, pack up the van full of the stuff we’re keeping, load the RV, get rid of the beds, dressers, tables, and desks, find a vacuum (because [...]

Books, Knowledge, and Me (KJ)

We have a ton of books. This morning a book dealer came buy and bought about a half of them and all of our children’s books. I think he gave us a fair price, but I still feel violated. I had a lot of books on different software programs and various internet [...]

On Purging (KJ)

A lot of people have been really encouraging about our purge. Neither CM nor I want our RV to be cluttered with a bunch of junk. I’ve got to be honest here, this is REALLY HARD. Now that everything is off of the shelves and out of the drawers, our house is [...]
