Packing has been weird. I keep finding things that I want to pack, but I know I have to leave behind because there simply won't be room. I'm not bringing my big CD player; I have Compy and Lappy, so I have two CD playing devices. I can't take all of my Dr. Nbooks, seven years of writing. I need to buy a padlock to protect them from prying eyes. Oh yes, and I need to find another storage space. Ideas?
I packed away some of my books over the weekend. Because of (lack of) space, I won't take all my books, but I did pack the ones I will be taking. I nearly cried when I packed away Harry Potter, Hitchhiker's Guide, and my dictionaries, not because the time seemed so near, but what if I needed to look up a word? What if I really really needed to know a certain spell or quotation or minor character's name? The Lexicon isn't perfect (but it does come close).
I've been looking forward to this for a long time, and now it's almost here. After packing nearly my entire life (and a few new things that feel unfamiliar so far) into boxes, I'm ready.
