I now feel settled in enough that it would be alright to have people over. Pretty much everything is unpacked. Exclusions are pictures, that may never be unpacked, and some home office stuff, that is sitting in a box next to my desk. I’ve taken out about 15 boxes worth of trash and washed about 12 loads of laundry during the unpacking process. There’s probably 1 more box of trash and a car full of clothes for Goodwill, but otherwise I think I’m good.
While unpacking I realized a couple things. I apparently have a subconscious fear of running out of staples. I found so many boxes of staples packed away that it will take me the rest of my life to go through them. I also realized I have a large hanger collection. After hanging everything up that could possibly be hung up I still have over 100 leftover hangers.
I’ve also found so many things I haven’t seen or thought about in years. Unpacking was a strange walk down memory lane.
