China Packed and Stored

We are doing great! We finished packing and storing all the china. That may not seem like much to some but, when you consider we have two sets of china with service for twenty. That means each set of china has at least twenty plates, twenty salad plates, twenty dessert plates, twenty bowls, twenty cups, twenty saucers, many platers, many serving bowls and salt and pepper shakers. One set even has matching stemware! So now you get the picture on way this is such a big accomplishment!

Now that chore is done we can move onto the next of several hundred on our list of to-do's. We already have boxes to we can use for packing the crystal. We have some crystal too. We will be looking for more boxes before we have that packed up!

It has been a real chore for Dawn with making the decisions on what to keep and what to get rid of. She has a lot of memories attached to this STUFF. She has done well and I know it is not easy for her.
