stress

I checked out a bunch of children's books from the library about moving to prepare the girls for the upcoming transition. If only it were as simple packing all of our stuff to go to a new house like all of the stories. Every item in the house requires a decision: will we NEED/want this in Iceland? Will we need this for the next two months in training? Is it worth it to keep this is storage for two years? Will we ever use it again? If I do get rid of it, will we just have to spend money to replace it in two years? Where the heck are we going to be in two years? Would someone benefit from using this while we're gone instead of storing it for two years? My head hurts with every closet I clean out. For example, when I cleaned out the girl's room yesterday I found both of their umbilical cords preserved in a small container. Okay, bad example...

1. THROW THAT AWAY!!! SICK
2. regardless of if you think you need it, im sure your going to want something new in two years. everything you own will be partially outdated.
3. If you cant let go, store it.

simple one-two-three in a blog post. who needs a book?!

I can completely identify with your tough decisions, having moved five times in ten years. Good luck!

David Fauth said...

thanks for all your advice, guys...I threw a lot of stuff away today with your words ringing in my ears...including the Pelt Christmas drinking glasses...

Pelt Family said...

Wait a minute, a Pelt Christmas Party collectors glass was thrown away? By the Fauth Family? I'm going to need a lengthy explanation!!!!!!

I understand that in the end no "thing" really matters and I know, I really do, that you had to "lighten the load." I guess it just kind of hurt to actually read it. Oh well, I hope you are having fun in Richmond, Jackson prayed for your family last night.
