Ok, everything is in and the movers have left, I’ve taken some deep breaths and I think it’s going to be OK. All the furniture pieces seem to fit the spots I’d chosen without overcrowding the rooms so that’s good. Also, all the boxes and bins are confined to two rooms so the house doesn’t seem a mess. That also helps – a lot!
I’ll start on Keith’s office tomorrow. It’s mostly books for the library. His office is right next door to the library so it will be easy to unpack and put the books on the shelves but we can still use the library without tripping over boxes.
You guys know I’m a planner and I want to still be able to sew while I work on organizing everything so I cleared as much of the area on one side of the room as I could for them to stack boxes and bins. And it’s a mess and overwhelming but …
And the front sewing nook is completely clear so I can sew when I need a break from unpacking. Being able to sew is especially important because my shelves aren’t coming until next week and I can’t do much unpacking of those bins until they get here.
Finally, I was assigned to check off the numbers on the inventory as they brought stuff in and I’m happy to say there was just one item missing – a roll of batting. They’re going to follow up tomorrow but it’s an easy thing to replace if it’s gone missing somehow.
