Moving. . .

. . . is the most daunting, stressful task, EVER!

My fiance and I are moving into our first place at the end of this month and since I’ve been sorting, packing, and donating a lot of stuff, I am appalled by just how much I actually HAVE!


I turned my mom’s spare bedroom into a staging area so I can sort and pack in peace

Now, don’t get me wrong, I have a lot of stuff that I use, and a lot of stuff I will be using once I get moved in (pots, pans, etc.) but I’ve lived in the same house for 25 years (except for when I was in college), and I’m finding stuff, old dolls and action figures, cassette tapes (remember those?), children’s books, hell, I’ve still got clothes in my closet that I’m pretty sure I haven’t worn since I was in high school, but I’m appalled by just how much of it there is.

I’m trying to get rid of everything I can, mostly old clothes and toys but despite numerous trips to Good Will, it doesn’t feel like I’m making much headway at all and I really don’t want my fiance to freak out over how much stuff I have.

Honestly, I feel like I look like a hoarder but I don’t have any problem throwing stuff away so I don’t suppose I actually am, but it doesn’t help when my mom goes through everything I’m trying to get rid of, going “why are you getting rid of this? You’ve never worn it! What about this, wasn’t it a gift?”. . . it’s like two steps forward, one step back :/


About bonefishdesigns

I hold a BFA in printmaking and drawing from Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, WV. Drawing and illustration have always been my passion and I make my living teaching people how to draw and paint. Currently, in addition to my work as a lifeguard, swim instructor and an art teacher, I'm also an apprentice to a tattoo artist and have done quite a bit of flash as well. I started this blog more as a way for me to keep track of my thoughts and inspiration, resources and references but I'm more than happy to welcome you to it with open arms.
