Moving isn't very fun. Last night, Caroline and I sorted through 4 years of accumulated stuff in our basement which seemed like it took forever. On the bright side, city scavengers will hit the jackpot if they stop at our curb: there you will find a gently used folding chair, a used computer monitor, and my first set of pots and pans that I bought for about $40 in graduate school.
On the even brighter side, we're hiring movers this time instead of using the backs of my family members which are free (thanks family for all of the previous moves!). I was full of gratitude to these movers by the way, when I was packing 6 huge boxes of books and am so thankful that I will not be the one moving them!
