Be still my heart! I can't believe today is the day. We have spent weeks sorting through things and putting them in piles of things we want to take to Italy, things we want to pack away, and things we want to throw away. Bailey's Moving and Storage told us to put everything we wanted shipped to Italy in one room. We did that and we had things piled on the bed and in piles on the floor and the closet was bulging. But it's all gone now. If we ever want to have clothes to wear again, we'll have to go to Rome to get them.
It's a strange sensation now that everything is gone. There's no second guessing ourselves and wondering if we have everything we need because it's too late now. I'm not a big fan of change, so this is difficult for me. Michael just sees it as one step closer and he's so excited he can hardly stand it.
