So, since DH works full time and I work part time, guess who gets to pack things up? I am building a rolling fury over all the STUFF we have. Who brought all this stuff into my house? And where am I going to put this stuff? Where am I going to put THAT stuff? Where am I going to find more boxes to put the stuff into?
We are ordering a POD - a storage container that the POD people will deliver to us, then pick up and take away when we are done. We could, if we wanted, have is sent elsewhere and unpack it there, or just leave the sucker stuffed full and store the whole ball of wax indefinitely for a small fee. It's like a temporary storage shed.
So I have been schlepping and sorting and trying to organize myself all day, and I'm now too stupid to continue. I don't know what comes next. We will be living here until Monday, so I can't just start at one end of the house and sweep through. And since the refurnishing will be so fast, I sort of have to plan what can be left until later (July?) to be moved back in. Also, there are pieces of furniture that will require the assistance of some high-school gorillas to move in and out. Try to organize for maximum efficiency because high-school gorillas have short attention spans. And by now, so do I. If I go into the same room three times and still can't remember what I wanted in there, it's time for a cup of tea and a good self-indulgent whine. How many people in the history of the world have had a chance to whine about having too much?
The kitties were delighted to have us back. They all slept with us! I was too tired to set up my CPAP last night, so slept without it. I am even more tired today because the sleep wasn't that good, and I snored like a strangling goose all night long. Now I know what I need to do - time to set up my breathing buddy.
Hope your June 1 will be wonderful!
