Packing Up


So, tomorrow is the day that the packers will be coming and the past 3 years of our lives will be categorized into boxes and shipped out.

ACK! Nightmare!

There are a few considerations in our case:

1) We need to live out of our suitcases for 2.5 months, with Eid coming – this is not the best time to be living out of suitcases…

2) The household items will need to be shipped first to Peninsular Malaysia before going on to a further journey to Borneo. So which ones do we leave in our house in Selangor, and which ones do we take with us to Sarawak? Or do I even want to go down that route?

3) I have no idea what our house in the new place will be like – whatever it is, I am pretty sure that a sizeable kitchen will be needed.

The whole house is in a state of mess of unbelievable proportion! Tonight, I am packing our suitcases for the rest of our stay here. Tomorrow, I guess we will need to pack room by room. Downstairs – kitchen, the living rooms, dining room stuff are nearly done. It is our living area upstairs that fills me up with worry – clothes, books, toys, bedlinen etc. etc. I am grateful for the fact that we never move with furniture, because that would be an even bigger nightmare!

After the packers leave tomorrow, it should be easier and we can go on to Mecca for our farewell umrah. That will be emotionally tough for me personally – and I would rather not think about it.

For now, pack, pack, pack.
