I started packing today.
I am grateful that I have time to pack slowly while going through everything. We are downsizing quite a bit (from a 2500 square foot house to a 1900 square foot house). I love the idea of this. The main living spaces are about the same size, but in this house there is an upstairs living space that we don't really use. Also we won't have a garage to store things in, though we have 2 storage sheds- one that needs doors and one that is ready to use (I think). I only packed 5 small boxes of books, but have a pile that is half that size of books I no longer want.
Every box I pack brings us closer to our move and being together as a family again.
