It has been a trying day.
I think I pretty much have the book-packing under control. I’m shipping off the books I want to keep box by box (the rest are being sold on Ebay and/or via tag sale); some of my more treasured books (autographed copies, etc.) will be traveling with me.
My next plan of action has been to go through my closet and get serious about sorting out my clothes — what to keep, what to donate, what to throw away. Of the clothes I am keeping, I wanted to also sort out the bare minimum of what I want to keep here, and what I will be shipping out west.
