Sorting Out, Getting Rid of, Packing Up.
As the title says, we are sorting out, getting rid of, and packing up stuff. Saturday, Damarise and I decided to go through the daunting task of sorting through our scrapbooking stuff. Friends and family have blessed us so much by sending us scrapbooking stuff all the way over here! Unfortunately we don't have the luggage space to bring it all back with us. And so, that brings us to where we were Saturday: sitting on the floor sorting through two buckets and many Ziploc bags full of everything from paper and stickers to magazine clippings and paste. We had our "no one could ever use this" pile, "give to friends" pile, and the "we'll bring this back home" pile. And after many hours, lots of sweat, and of course, laughter (mostly at how long we had kept certain stuff for) we finished organizing :) We got everything down to one little bucket! Yes!! Now to finish going through other belongings before we head back to the States. (Dun dun dun duuuunnnn)
