[quote=iwouldratherbeknitting;1101010]do the sorting/etc that is necessary for a move to a new location? I have stuff everywhere.. keep being 'diverted' by other things.. and now have all sorts of 'started' projects going on.. and not much of anything really sorted.
However, I did clean out and organize the guest bathroom's medicine cabinet.. like that is really going to make a big difference, right?
But, it was at least something that was small enough that I could finish and see some progress.
I have to sort my household goods into: what goes into storage, (it will be shipped to storage in the states- so, it's not like I can get it later if I want it), the items to send with me, the items to be sent in a small shipment (I think it's 100-150 pounds of household/etc items that you'll need immediately.. I put sheets, towels, a few kitchen items, my microwave, more clothing, etc..), items to mail ahead (when I get an address) to myself.. (teaching materials and other things that I'll need when I get there) and which items to put in the suitcase (and did you guys know that they changed the two checked bags at 70 pounds each to 50 pounds each?
I noticed that on the ticket last summer when I flew to the states. Normally, it doesn't matter to me-- but, when I'm MOVING .. I need every pound that I'm allowed- since, my household goods won't arrive for about 3-4 months after they are picked up by the movers! )
AND.. what to donate to others, and what to throw away or to give to friends.. (like the food and cleaning supplies that will eventually be left over).. and of course..
WHAT did I start sorting first last week? Why, my yarn, of course! I sorted the yarn to put in these huge cloth bags.. that are so heavy.. that it will take the movers to 'move them' once I get them full.. and OF COURSE, I'll have to decide which yarns to take on the plane for the 25+ hours flight to the states.. then the flight from the states to EUROPE.. because, right now.. there isn't any time for knitting.. sigh.. (when I need it most for stress relief)
SO, who's in? Who wants to fly to Seoul, Korea to help me? I can offer you a couch.. or a guest bed.. but, right now they are holding 'items' pending the sorting process.. ok, the truth is.. stuff is just on them.
Oh, I forgot to mention.. that I have to do all of this after I get off work.. that might be why I have various projects started? However, I'm going to work on it all day/evening today.. (Sunday)[/quote Wow,LOL we are planning a giant move for my nephew (he's taking an assignment in Africa) from what I understand he even has to take ALL maintenance stuff for his vehicle too (tires, oil etc)...So I feel for you
Oh, but he won't be taking any yarn
