I procrastinated long enough. Our Assessment for shipping requirements was today and all last week I was in procrastinating mode. I just could not get it together to start sorting and packing and making my lists. David is aware it’s a big job and has been encouraging me to get at it. Why me? Because I’m the one who has done it…4 times before!!! And I also have a system and notes from before. But, it’s soooo much work and it also means I have to start tearing apart my apartment and making my little piles.
So, I waited and waited… and after July 1st and we were officially in the month we are scheduled to leave…I got at it!
TODAY, they came to assess! David showed Henri all our piles and in the cupboards, they discussed the best shipping option for our China vases. Needless to say, we will NEED sea shipment which will take approximately two months after it leaves China.
Packing day is scheduled for next Tuesday( but we might do it Monday instead) so I have one week to finish it all up, get any last things that I just might have forgot and then it’s done! BUT in the meantime my apartment is losing the personal touches. Things are in boxes and piles and BELIEVE it or not I have 2 out of the 6 suitcases ( 4 big ones and 2 carry ons) we are taking on the plane PACKED!! Once I get started, I’m pretty good but it was just to get started!!!!
I guess I thought if I refused to pack, I wouldn’t have to go… BUT it doesn’t work that way!
So…the process HAS begun!!
