Nothing has quite driven home the fact that I am leaving Texas and my lovely home like packing up my LEGO models.
I had dedicated my entire second bedroom to LEGO and role-playing games. It was almost a shrine to being a geek. As you can see in this photo, I kept all the original boxes for the LEGO.
The Architecture models broke down surprisingly well. Even the largest ones, Robie House and Fallingwater did not require much dis-assembly. The Sydney Opera House didn’t need any taking apart at all! The same could not be for most of the Star Wars models.
The Super Star Destroyer, Imperial Shuttle and the Tantive IV all made me cry a little as I took them apart and put them back into their boxes for packing. Rebuilding them in my new place – wherever that will be – is going to be fun all over again at least!
