Last Day of Packing

It's the last day of packing before our move tomorrow.  My sore back and I are left to do this last day of labor alone together.  (Can something be "alone together?")

What I wouldn't give to have a job right now.  This post isn't about that, though, so don't tune out.

Our box count is already around 45 . . . and I'd say I have at least 25% of the house remaining to be packed.  The question I keep coming back to is "How did I get so much crap?"

But, I already know the answer.  I'm a crap collector.  I love crap.  LOVE it.  And, so does Troubletron.  This year of living the frugal lifestyle has been a serious impediment to our acquiring of more crap, and it's hurt us both to change our spending ways.  But, that makes this moving process even more insulting.  I haven't bought new crap in months--or over a year--and we had a yard sale a month ago and got rid of A TON of our crap--yet there is still so much crap to pack.
