I should be packing.


Our vacations have been taken, worked has been worked but all the boxes are still unpacked, junk has yet to be gone through and I cant seem to get my self to start packing and our move in day is near so near that stress levels have risen.newhome14newhome10

Its too overwhelming. I don't know what I want to keep, what I want to give away, what I want to sell. I just sit and stare at the boxes. Then I stare at our junk.


I think of how all I want to do is throw it all out. Start completely over. The junk we have has been ours for 7 years. It doesn't match, its not the cool antiques that you want to keep. Its nothing I’d want to pass down to Wyatt when he is older. It is all junk.


Broken McDonald's toys, frames that house old pictures, card board star war cut outs that the husband saved from his work.


Old books that I have never read, DVD movies that are still in the plastic wrapper and a ton of CDs. Couches that don't match, book shelves that are broken and a table that the legs are completely chewed on by Cody’s brother’s dog.


I moved out when I was 18 took nothing but my teenage crap which then led into marriage crap when Cody moved in with me after we got married. I want to start over where my things matter. Where when I am old Wyatt will want to take some of it with him because it reminds him of home.


I want a fresh new start, a start that doesn't began with all my old junk.


  1. Do it. Throw most of it away. If it doesn't make you happy, get rid of it. We were thinking of moving next month (we aren't now though) and I was having panic attacks thinking of all the crap we have and don't need. I am still going to get rid of most things come September, when the kids go back to school.

  2. I threw almost all of my stuff away, I only had 2 boxes, one time when I moved across the country. It felt great!

    PS I love the pics!!

  3. I have a whoolllllleeeeee 2,000 square foot house to fill. You should do a blog garage sale. :) Not to add any MORE to your plate or anything. ;)
