unload / remove


L - Nikon, T - phone pic

Yesterday we packed my car to the brim with T's belongings - it took 4 people 3 trips, up and down 4 flights of stairs, to get it done. Today I unpacked the car to put "her" back in her room. Well at least I didn't have 4 flights of stairs to tend with. But where did all of that stuff fit before? I guess if there was room before there will be room enough still – but it sure seems like a lot more than when she left. I'll be glad to have her home next weekend. / my room is so sad looking now. even removing the polaroids and stuff from my bulletin board was sad. i left the calendars, turned to a new month, on the board for this week just so it wouldn't be completely bare. ours was a room others liked to visit... it was inviting, neat and clean... we will miss this little place so much.

Oh I remember that bunny mask fondly.

Yes, that bunny mask on that coat rack cracks me up!

And T. I know that sadness of leaving a barren room that was once happiness. It's something that stays with you but later becomes a kind memory.

How exciting that summer is coming and your little chicken is returning to her nest.

It's a good thing you've been doing boot camp so you were able to do all those stairs!

That's so nice that your room was one that others liked to visit.

I am clapping that you are back home. If only for a few months. That is worth the move. Right? ; )

beautiful juxtaposition and what a sweet but sad feeling - the joy of coming home to loved ones but the saddness of leaving the little niche in the world.
