Last night, my Mom, bless her heart, had a plan to get my rear in gear. Seriously, I am not sure why, but I have been pretty paralyzed in regards to tackling my room and beginning the process of packing for New York. I mean the sheer amount of books that are in my room is quite enough to overwhelm almost anyone, not to mention the bags and bags of scarves I have not been able to make myself part with over the years.
All I can say is my Mom is a pro. Twelve years ago when I was moving from N. Little Rock, AR -> Seattle she took pity on me when she walked into my bedroom and I was staring blankly at my closet, overwhelmed and on the verge of tears. Though a lot and I mean A LOT has changed in the past 12 years…including the fact that I am now moving from Seattle -> New York (Brooklyn) there are some things which have remained the same, namely my inability to pack a room. A suitcase = no problemo, I’m a pro. A life altering packing of the room on the other hand, for those kind of situations sometimes it is best to just call in the expert, Mom.
So, last night when I arrived home there was dinner and a mimosa, then the work began in earnest.. almost…but not before Mom showed me a little inspiration from House Beautiful ”Big Style In Small Spaces”.
