Andy keeps saying that he believes there is a level of organization needed to pack up and move overseas – and that we are just below that threshold. Hey – we’re artists! What can we say? Anyway, we did it… somehow. We had to sort and resort at least 10 times in the past 2 or 3 months – “storage, yard sale, or Africa? “ was my mantra until the beginning of May. Then it became “ocean shipment or airplane baggage?” Then it became “car or trash?” As we are travelling right now, our van is packed to the ceiling (no Grandma, we can’t see through the rear view mirror! 🙂 and everyone has at least 2 or 3 things on their lap. But, we did it. That’s all we can say. We sold so much stuff, its ridiculous! And we STILL are shipping a small U-Haul’s worth of stuff to Nairobi. How did we ever fit this much stuff in our townhouse? Oh well – it feels good to be down to just the essentials. And the memorabilia. And the toys. And the umpteen pieces of electronic toys (I mean, “equipment”). Thanks to all the people who helped us sort, pack, sell, haul, etc. You know who you are – we couldn’t have done it without you!
