Work to Do
She changed into her pyjamas and climbed back into bed and did some schoolwork while I packed up all our clothes and tried to go through piles of papers and books, throwing away what was clearly junk, and minimizing the piles as much as I could. Gustavo came and cleaned, and I gave him a couple backpacks of things we could not bring home. My challenge is to get everything we bring back into four bags of 50 pounds each. I had hoped to give Eric a bag or two, but he has more than enough stuff to bring home, including significant amounts of equipment. It is remarkable to see how much paper and books we have accumulated. I wonder if because I have not allowed myself to buy anything this year, instead I have collected printed materials. None of it has to come home, but I have a difficult time giving any of it up.
