My Life Is A Box

Yesterday was Canada Day. A day for sun and outdoor activities complete with a BBQ or KFC picnic. A great day to hang out with family and friends then go see the fireworks show. Ha! Not in this household. Trevor and I packed all day. Besides, the sky grew a vicious dark grey around noon and proceeded to pour rain on us for hours flooding our city into a temporary state of emergency. It was interesting. Many people had sewer back up and flooded basements. I worried about our basement for about an hour as the street became a lake that gradually crept its way up our front lawn. Fortunately the water didn't advance too far and we avoided disaster.
I am surrounded by boxes and chaos. We've been sorting through everything, deciding what to keep and what to give/throw away. Then we had to determine what we would not need for possibly the next year. Myself, Trevor, my cat and especially Sierra feel rather unsettled by this process. At least this messy state is short-lived. The unsettled feeling...well, that could last awhile yet.
