Moving Day

1/25/12

Before: stuff to be shipped
After: all boxed up
Before: The Pidge, being disassembled
After: The Pidge, all wrapped up
Six boxes. That's how many boxes it took to pack up our belongings to ship to California. One of the boxes is The Pidge and another box has three area rugs in it. We're also flying back with only two checked bags each. Jeff and I are rather proud of ourselves for not accumulating a lot of stuff during the year and a half we've lived in Singapore. It's making the move back a lot easier to manage.

In the four years that Jeff and I have been married, we've lived in five different apartments. Counting the place we're moving into this weekend in San Jose, that's six apartments in four years. Moving day can be stressful to some people, but we handle it really well and actually look forward to it. With the cardboard boxes and moving truck comes the promise of something new and exciting.

Change is good.

    1. Thank you. It was a lot of little things that we had to pack up (like souvenirs) so I don't even think the boxes are completely full.

  4. I'm very impressed. That's less than what we used to drag back from LA after 3 month stints there ;)

  6. I only just got here and did not get to meet you. Now you are going home (we are also from the Bay Area). Perhaps our paths will cross in the future. Best wishes to you!
