We arrived back in Sacramento December 5. Our home seems so big! So much stuff. I'm thinking how well we did with 4 suitcases worth of belongings and a modestly furnished apartment during our year overseas. And here, we have roomful after roomful, closet after closet, of clothes, linens, files, books, office supplies, and odds and ends, clearly not essential to everyday life. I began sorting and filling bags and boxes to donate to charity.
