Glad Tidings and Insidious Happy Meal Toys

We were approved for the apartment. (I'm resisting the urge to put multiple exclamation marks and some smiley faces behind that statement). We'll move mid-August.

The last time we moved, we were downsizing from a 5 bedroom house to less than 600 square feet of space. We had to give away, throw away, and sell about two-thirds of our possessions.

This time around, we're moving to a bigger apartment. (Again with this desire for multiple exclamation marks and smiley faces).

Yet we'll still have quite a job of going through everything and deciding what is worth taking with us. I've tried to be diligent with my "One Thing Comes In, One Thing Goes Out" rule during our time here, but I'm afraid there are some things that slid in under the radar. Happy Meal toys, for instance. Also Steve's books--'twould be sacrilege to suggest The Rule in that case. The kids' outgrown clothing. My shoes (above the law, you see). DVD's. More Happy Meal toys and their kind.

I'm looking forward to the pruning.

(Your friends can use all the exclamation points).

I used to do a lot of stepping oh so accidentally, mind you, on Happy Meal toys. Just saying.

Congrats! I am so happy it worked out for you, and that you will be in something with a little more space. What an awesome answer to prayer.
