No Junk In My Trunk...

We are moved into our new place and I am happy to report that we all made it here alive- no kids were lost and I didn't accidentally leave the dog behind though I probably should have considering he cost us a $200 pet deposit and will cost us $45 a month in pet rent. Lord, if you a reading this, please overlook all of the bad things I have done in my life because I must be a really good person if I'm paying $740 a year for the privilege of keeping my dog (not to mention all of the darned money I've spent on vet appointments, teeth cleanings, food, etc).

The house is pretty much unpacked except for the clothes and toys which I hope to finish in the next few days. Hopefully the kids won't realize I got rid of a bunch of their toys before we moved- I suppose if they do I can tell them that they must have fallen off the truck. Why are kids such major hoarders?

Moving was one of the best decisions we have ever made. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulders- no more drama to deal with and we are far enough away that no one is going to just stop by and bug us. Plus, while we were packing we went through all of our stuff and got rid of the clutter. If we hadn't moved we would still have a ton of junk sitting around and would have most likely accumulated two more tons of junk just because we had space to put in. Now I hope to be much more mindful of what I bring into the house and when we buy a house in the future to remember that we don't need junk mucking up our lives.

So what is the lesson here? There are a few: dogs are expensive little critters, living too close to family is just not a great idea and clutter sucks so get rid of as much stuff as possible.
