Short and sweet

This is going to be a very short post. The past week has been so busy with my move and my mom's move. I'm too tired to write an adequate post, but I didn't want to break my promise. I promised to post every Monday and Friday and I want to stick to that commitment. However, being so preoccupied with moving has left me a little uninspired.

A few highlights and thoughts from the past weekend.
  • I have way more things than I thought I did, even though I got rid of so much!
  • My mom has so much more stuff than me. I wonder if living with me while I was starting off on my minimalist journey will have an impact on her and she'll get rid of some of her excess?
  • The moving company I hired was so much better than the one my mom hired. She said she'll go with the one I chose the next time she moves. The quality of the service was very different.
  • I'm not very good at moving. I think I'm more ready than I actually am. It's like I don't see it. I really hope I can get a handle on this for my next move.
  • I know some really good people that are ready and willing to help at a moment's notice. I hope they know and feel like I'm just as there for them.
  • How will I go about continuing the decluttering? Will I just get rid of the things I believe are unneeded, or will I plan another controlled decluttering?
  • I'm looking forward to having everything in its place.
  • I'm looking forward to coming up with a routine.
  • I'm looking forward to getting my new couch. I read of a minimalist who decided that she could live without a couch and actually wanted to, but having lived without one for over a week I realize that I like having a couch and I miss having one.
  • I wish I was ok with living with less than 100 items total (random number that comes up often around minimalism world). It would surely make moving so much easier and quicker.
Maybe in the future I'll expand on some of these. But for now, I'll just settle for sharing with you these random thoughts that have been occupying my mind.
