I read all the time about military wives who love moving, who love downsizing their belongings and decorating new places, exploring and shopping and all those grown-up sorts of things.
I am not one of those women. I have a difficult time downsizing my stuff. I love my books. I adore having five bookshelves full; to me it's better than any other wall covering or hanging.
And yet...Chaplain Hubby wants our household goods' weight to go down instead of up. Thankfully I'm able to claim a sizeable portion of books as my own spouse "pro gear" for teaching, for which I'm grateful.
I still find the entire process emotionally draining and difficult.
