How does one go about moving across the country? I can tell you because I’ve done it a time or two. You throw sh*t out. Why don’t my parents have those crappy, but promising, pieces of my artwork from kindergarten? Why do I doubt I have a copy of my high school or college diplomas? Why do all of the clothes I own fit in one small closet? You have to make some hard decisions when you move. Live light. I think it has instilled good anti-hoarder habits that I have carried through life (maybe this is why I struggle to grasp the importance of filing papers?) As I prepare to move out of DC, I have liberally started the paring down process. I’m pretty sure by the time Fall rolls around, I’ll be lucky to have a toothbrush.
Tonight’s dinner needed to be light to accommodate for Ina Garten’s coconut cupcakes that Kat made for our Bach viewing party. Canned fish and sandwich thins in a pinch!
