We have finally moved and are in a state of shock at seeing how much stuff we own. The new house is considerably smaller than our previous one, and despite having given away or sold what seemed like vast amounts of stuff, we are not going to fit. More down-sizing is in order!
On the plus side, Charlottesville has many cultural resources that are easily accessible. Weather is problematic: we are having mid-summer weather in October. Living a normal life down here is only possible with air conditioning – we are in that respect bionic.
I am reading “Behave” by Robert Sapolsky, which is a fantastic book about which I plan to write a review as soon as we achieve some semblance of domestic order.
