Getting rid of most of our accumulated possessions has been incredibly freeing rather than painful. It's symbolic for me of the fresh and new start we're making here. I told Dave that it was like deep cleaning in a more permanent way! If I wasn't so tired and drained (mentally and emotionally) this would actually be really fun. I'm only taking what we really love or will need right away. Otherwise, we'll make or purchase it later. Awesome.
Anyway, the kids are rolling with the chaos and taking it all in stride. The boxes are the new favorite thing around here. They've made some very cool tunnels and interesting games with just plain boxes. Who needs toys??
