Moving Day 1

This is, or will be, the story of how we moved on to our Hans Christian 33' from a large house. We finally broke down and rented a 10'X15' storage unit. Will this be enough to hold a 3 bed 3 bath house worth of stuff? They tell us it will. We moved the first flat bed trailer's load of furniture and boxes out of the house. The house does seem slightly emptier, but the storage unit seems WAY more crowded.. I have never packed a storage unit before, and to me, it looks impossible! How do you decide what is worth storing for years? I'm not a pack rat, so I usually just get rid of everything- literally! I have no excess 'stuff', I have a cat and a dog and they have stuff. Adam has enough stuff for the both of us.
The boat is in progress too. We just updated the cushions, which was purely aesthetic, but it looks so much more like home. Now of course, the water pump has decided to malfunction. Clearly this will be no easy change out as we suspect there is a leak somewhere in the plumbing.
With summer just around the corner it will be harder to actually work on the house and boat and so much more tempting to just hang out at the boat. Hopefully we can stay motivated to keep making some progress!
