So about this packing thing.

We’re two days in and I think I’m over it.

I mean, not that I’m helping. But my supervisory role is really weighing on me.

I’ll remind you we are possibly months away from moving. With that, I’d personally only like to pack things we don’t use often or that aren’t aesthetically pleasing. Enter my knick knacks and wall hangings. Do I use them everyday? Not in a practical sense, no. Do they bring me joy and make our house a home? Most definitely. I turn my back for one second and this man packs ALL my knick knacks and starts taking down my wall hangings. Is he out of his mind?! Apparently.

He also tried to convince me to get rid of my books and get a Kindle. Again, I’m not sure we’re going to make it through this.
