Day 117: I Own? That.

I moved today. It's my 5th residence in less than 3 years. I'm pretty good at it now.

Today, I reacquainted myself with my stuff. I haven't seen my stuff in over a year. I haven't lived with my stuff in 3 years.

I had fun today. Especially when my friend Kim was there. Kim has a way of celebrating life that makes me wish I was more like her. Each piece of furniture that got unwrapped she oohed and aaahed over. Each piece of furniture had to tell its story, its life history, where it came from, who owned it first, how long we'd had it. And Kim hung on every word. It's good to have friends like Kim. She makes life good.

I cannot tell you how many times the movers would be bringing something off the truck and I would say, "I OWN? that?" And Kim would laugh. And I would laugh.

Tomorrow we will delve into the boxes that are completely overflowing our garage. Who knows what surprises will be in there?

I'll let you know tomorrow.

All that to say, when you have so much stuff that you don't even know what you own, you have too much stuff. I feel a garage sale coming!
