We moved into our home about 4 1/2 years ago. The day we closed, this is pretty much how the house looked as we walked in the front door. Lovely faux paint, gorgeous hardwood floors, nice open space. It's been a very nice place to live until just recently.
Oh, and I work from home. And all of my office has to be packed up and moved to storage...I can keep what I need in a few small boxes - What!!!??? It's my office! And it's time for business taxes, and I need my client files, and, and, and....Ugh. How do I decide what is absolutely important and what I can live without for possibly up to 6 or 8 weeks?
I know me, and I'll keep out all this stuff I think I need (never to touch the entire time!) and pack up the rest and that is exactly the file, or whatever that I'll really need. Can anybody else relate?
Doug and I will be moving into our tiny little guest room that also has to house our four dogs, along with all the items the restoration people don't think should go into storage (art, TV's, etc) Oh yeah.
Really, just what a mess. So if I'm a little cranky and a little preoccupied - please just say a prayer for me. I know in the grand scheme of things, this is really just an annoyance. We really are blessed beyond measure and nobody got hurt, nobody died, we didn't lose any of our possessions (although we could stand to rid ourselves of so much stuff!). It could be so much worse....
