Four years of high school Spanish and my most vivid memory is our teacher telling a story about how it is much better to be late than never. Well the story wasn't about unpacking, but it applies here.
posted in August about moving 8 months ago and still not being finished unpacking. This started me thinking that we have been here for over 13 months and we haven't finished unpacking. That and the fact that we have a man coming to move the undersized propane heater from my sewing room into this room and install a larger heater in the sewing room so I can sew next winter without freezing, finally got me moving. I really wish I had taken a picture before I started because believe it or not this is a HUGE improvement. I keep pointing out to DH how much better it is since we put in all that work. He laughs at me and says there is still a long way to go.
I'm trying to be optimistic. There were boxes stacked to the ceiling with a path between. Now most of the boxes are at least partially empty and there is plenty of room for the heater guy to get in there to install the heater on Friday. When this room gets completely cleared out we are going to move the computers into here along with a futon and build bookshelves so it can be an office/library.
DH was not enjoying putting things away at all.
When I mentioned some shelving he had said he was going to build for my glass storage jars that I had temporarily put on the mantle he very graciously
offered to build those instead of unpack. :-) Funny how that worked. I'm not going to complain though. I'm just going to fill the shelves when the paint is completely dry. He still has to build the cabinet doors, but I think this is the fastest he has ever built a cabinet. Wonder if I had finished unpacking the boxes on the first day if he would have gotten as far along as he did. ;-)
