NaBloPoMo: Day 10
I’m not a good packer. I’ll even goes as far as to say that I HATE PACKING!

Case in point. I pretty much had a nervous break down packing my books the other day. My Hubs and I are big bibliophiles which is great for mental stimulation but packing… Eh. Not so much. Of course being a packing newb (which seems strange since I’ve moved more than 10x) that you shouldn’t try to pack all your books in one HUGE box.
Hello, Cupcake by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson
I learned that the hard way. When I tried to move it, the box pretty much ripped down the crease and all 200+ books came crashing out in one big book burning heap. I swear I started bawling right then and there. It was not pretty.

But maybe it was a blessing in disguise. At first I was just kinda throwing all the books haphazardly from the bookshelves into the box. I wasn’t paying attention to what the books were or anything. Since I had to basically pick them up one at a time from the floor, I was able to look at them and make decisions about keeping or donating the second time around.

And you know what I realized? I think it says something when I decided not to pack 5 books “just in case” I’d need them. I was almost panicky about not having them readily available. So I thought I’d share with my fellow foodies.

But I’m a great unpacker though. Just saying.
