Johnny Rotten summed it up with "No Fun"

I fell asleep last night watching a documentary about the rape of Nanking in 1937, not recommended viewing before bedtime! I awoke around 3:00 am  and did some light reading on Chiang Kia-Shek.  I spent the rest of my day planning my wardrobe for the next two years. Sorting, packing, storing,  and Chinese documentaries, oh my!
 I am asked every evening "what did you get rid of today?" A certain someone has an expectation that I am going to expunge all of our belongings before we move. The company will gladly store all of our junk for two years, so why not sort it when we get back? Imagine the dialogue from A&E's 'Hoarders' and you get the drift. It ends up that I am married to a flea market bulimic who has spent the last 20 years binging and now expects me to do all of the purging. You can see why I am looking forward to curling up with the Opium Wars tonight. No fun.

That stinks. Are you selling your home? You may need a bigger one when you return. We all know you won't be able to resist the lovely things you will find in your new home.

No matter when or where you move, the sorting part is the worst! This new adventure you and your family are going on is sooooo exciting! I thought the move The Mister and I made from one state to another was a big's nothing compared to what you guys are about to embark upon. I wish you the best of luck and I really hope you keep the blog going. I will be interested to see what treasures you come across once you get to your new home.

Best of luck!

That is NO fun. But you're wise to do it now so it's easier later.
