How delightful it is to see our pile of boxes shrinking. We have less than 30 (of the original 90) to unpack and put away. We have done a little "cheating," though. Some boxes we've opened and simply stashed their contents away to deal with later. Other boxes we've opened looking for specific items and then left the rest to unpack at another time. That means we may actually have more than 30 boxes-worth of content to deal with--but at least the boxes are leaving the house. Luckily, our new place comes with a small storage shed where we stash the boxes until we can get them to the recycling center in Taos. We've already deposited about 4 carloads of boxes there. We remember as we were packing all these up in Marquette with our dear friend and steady assistant, Pat, that she remarked how much more fun the unpacking was going to be; she definitely knew whereof she spoke!
