Turns out I own a lot of junk. I kind of already knew this but preparing to move 2000 miles has reaffirmed it. I have spent the better part of two days going through boxes of paperwork and magazines and have managed to throw a lot of things out. I filled up the entire backseat of my car with items today and made a run up to the Recycling Center (I'm sure that isn't the name of it but it is the location across the street from the dump where you can recycle just about everything).
Tomorrow morning the 28 foot moving container shows up at the house and I will be able to start loading my belongings (minus the junk mentioned above, YEAH!!). For those of you who now are under the impresson that I must own a lot to need a 28' container, I am only going to be using only approx. 12 feet of the space. I get charged by the foot. I will have a few days to load everything up as the moving company is going to pick up the container on Monday after I have boarded the plane that same morning. Crazy times indeed.
