the first boxes

I made a Home Depot run for moving boxes over spring break, and yesterday I put together the first few. It seems early to start packing but I don’t want to spend my last week home frantically boxing things up, so I decided to start with what I know I won’t need between now and move-in day (e.g. winter clothes and the extra coffee maker I’m scoffing from my parents’ house). Also, my countdown to commencement (62 days, anyone?) constantly reminds me that all of this happening much quicker than I’ve totally realized.

Anyway, yesterday was “kitchen stuff” day. Somehow there was enough to fill three boxes. I was kind of amazed.

Now all I have to do is figure out where to keep the boxes for the next 11 weeks.
