Boxes, and bubblewrap, and unpacking, oh my!

Sorry for the unintentional blog hiatus. I packed my blog mojo in one of the bajillion boxes now lining my garage and I’m not sure which one it’s in.

While you’re waiting for some fresh squeezed creative juices, maybe you could help me with this math problem:
Billy lives in an 800-square foot apartment. Sally’s apartment is 875 square feet. The sum of the 2 apartments is 1675 square feet. Billy and Sally want to share an apartment that is 1131 square feet. 1131 is 544 less than 1675, so Billy or Sally must sacrifice some of their belongings. Which of his worldly goods must Billy get rid of so that the apartment can accomodate Sally’s prized possessions?
