It was 35 degrees in my apartment last night. This heat is making it extremely difficult to pack. I have 10 days to go through all my belongings and decide what I can take with me and what will have to find new home. I find it amazing how clutter so quickly invades my space. It's everywhere. I'm finding old receipts, old cards, and little trinkets that found a place to sit undetected in every nook, every crevice of my bookcase, every flat surface that isn't already a home to something else. Last night I sat on the floor and sorted through some of my belongings. Trying to determine the fate of each item while pondering the reason behind each decision. The toughest decisions are for those items that I don't really have a use for but are of sentimental value. There's the danger of slipping back down memory lane and never letting anything go. I have to learn to let go.
