My guys were able clear out the storage unit.

See! bit of trash is all

So now the only challenge, since the office was closed, is making sure that the conntract is canceled before we are hung with another month.

I wish I could say the same for the garage, but I can’t.

What had started as organized chaos has completely degenerated into chaos as they unloaded boxes willy-nilly. Admittedly, I am all for saving the money every month especially since we have finished the garage with an eye toward storage.

I had started organizing onto shelves, then the rest of the book boxes were stuffed in.

see my nice shelves?

the empty ones on the end?

the empty ones on the end that I can’t get to?

I got tired just thinking about moving all those boxes after unpacking five and went back to the house. Looking out the window and considering cross-stitching just seemed like a friendlier use of time.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!

      Agreed! Still, not quite up to living out of a really tiny space yet. But won’t have to buy crafting supplies ever again!

    Welcome back to the US! You sure have beautiful views from your SF home. I know you’ve been busy, and I hope your move has gone smoothly and that you are liking your new/old home.
