The joy of getting rid of stuff
Yesterday we donated 7 bags of baby clothes. We can get rid of a lot more books than we thought since we’re going to get an e-reader sometime this year (maybe the Kindle 2 when it’s released). It feels really good to just get rid of stuff. Makes me, the prodigal packrat, look at things in a new way. I always wondered how the hell people had really spare & zen living spaces and I just might *get it* now. Get rid of anything that isn’t needed or used.
Hopefully today’s productivity will also entail
- packing a barrel
- translating, reading & signing our lease (legal docs in Costa Rica need to be in Spanish)
- ordering some documents (birth certificates, etc) that we need for residency
- figuring out the bank transfer action
As I learned in my high school French class, Petit a petis l’oiseau fait son nid.
Little by little the bird builds its nest. The only way to get all of our packing & prep done is to just do it bit by bit.
