After breakfast at my favorite nearby diner, I worked on boxing stuff for my Maui move. I worked all day long, with only a short break to talk with my friend Beth from Florida, and to get some lunch/dinner.
I started upstairs. Gus was very interested in watching and helping me.
The morning passed quickly. By the afternoon, I was past the main floor (minus the kitchen) and in the basement. Packing in the basement was hard. I had several boxes of old pictures and old toys and keepsakes from my childhood. I went through each box, and tried to discard and repack. It was very time consuming.
Among my childhood possessions were three handheld electronic games. I played them for hours and hours when I was a kid. I was curious, so I got some batteries to see if they still worked. Two of the three did. By far my favorite was the Tron game. It still worked! Yay! I played it a little before I went to bed.
Today I still have to do the kitchen, and I have maybe two or three more boxes in the basement. I think I may have over estimated how many boxes I would have. If that’s true, I’ll have more space in the shipping container than I expected, and maybe I’ll be able to take some furniture along. Or maybe I could set up a small sitting and sleeping space in there, and save money on a plane ticket.
