Gads! It seems like I have been packing , unpacking, packing, lifting, dragging, opening and assembling for weeks…actually…thinking about it….it has been weeks. In fact since we started this whole process of moving from our mobile digs back into a stix and brix abode, it has been almost as time consuming as moving from our 7200 square foot Coulson Castle into our small by comparison, "deal on wheels". Finally I can clearly see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Yesterday I unpacked and found homes for the contents of six more boxes of mostly office stuff. (Does anyone remember seeing those stories or commercials of someone removing vast quantities of things from bottomless bags or boxes?) I kept revisiting those visions…like seriously, how did we make room for all this sh*t in the Moho!??? Last night I assembled…yes assembled some more…the office chair and the additional printer stand/filing cabinet. In the past two weeks I have contributed more cardboard to the recyclers than anyone in the whole province of BC I’m sure.
Today our lamps arrived so after a little more assembly I added some more cardboard to the recycle bin and continued putting things away. I am down to eight boxes left but six of them contain clothing and shoes (mostly seasonal) that won’t be put away until the closet organisers are installed in a week or two. Rick is on his way home and with luck he’ll be back in Mission by Sunday. Yay! When he gets here, he’ll be cheerfully greeted with a cosy, orderly home, a happy cat and an ecstatic though exhausted wife!
With today’s sunshine, this gorgeous, ever changing view, the knowledge that the end of my chaos is just around the corner and the prospect of my hubby being home in just a couple of days, I have plenty to be thankful for. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving folks!
