I finally Unpacked…

20 Jun

Do you know how it feels to have everything in your life packed up for three years??? I do. Roughly three and a half years ago my husband asked me to marry him so I packed all my stuff and moved across state. Today, finally, I unpacked it because the house was finished and the opportunity arose. I found so many things I forgot about. For anyone that’s seen the movie Dream Catcher there was a great analogy I’d like to use here. In the movie, one of the characters refers to his memory as a “Memory Warehouse” where he actually keeps files of his memories in file boxes in a sort of library. I like to believe my mind works the same way. In the movie, when  a memory no longer holds enough clout and the character needs room for new memories , he incinerates them in an incinerator. I believe we do the same, and with all the things I had packed, I did. When we got married two years ago, I got all new things and so my old things were forgotten. Opening the boxes was a total mind trip, finding things you thought were gone forever, or that you never knew you ever had, even if it was something you had all day. Amoung things I found my journals and of course those house memories I had long but forgotten, and it makes it seem as though I’m reading about someone elses life. Most of the memories I can’t even make a mental image for anymore. Just interesting, much like a time capsule I suppose…

Well, good for unpacking right??

    Interesting post. So, packing all the stuffs in your house is quite a hard work to do and it is really tiring. We’ve done it once and soon another again but the fun is there and memories with the old ones of course.

      Yes, I hate moving ugh! But it is fun, almost like christmas all over! I thought I only got 5 place settings of china for my wedding and while unpacking I found three more that were unopened, that and my wedding ring martini glass, needless to say I had to use it 😉

    Being unpacked is the most freeing feeling in the world!
    I moved in with a friend of mine 2 months ago and still have another 4 months on the lease so I’m living, sorta outta boxes for now until I move in with the boyfriend in November. Which I can’t wait for.

    Congrats to you for being unpacked! (it’s a big thing!)
