It’s been a few weeks since we moved in, and though the main chorus of downsizing is going to echo on for a long time to come, there are some more immediate things that can make our new place seem more like home. There are still a lot of boxes to be unpacked and things to be dispersed. One big one has been the books. Boxes and boxes of books have been stacked up around the living room, closets, and hallway, lending to the freshly moved chaos feel.
Yesterday we managed to place 2 of the 3 bookcases (still unsure about where #3 will go) and I unpacked well over a dozen boxes, which made a huge difference. I also unpacked 3 big boxes of vinyl and half of the cds.
I’ll make a list, but other goalposts are putting up artwork, lights and mirrors, setting up a mini computer area, unpacking the rest of the clothes, checking out the local library/shops, setting up some shelves, figuring out some kind of cabinet storage for all the bathroom stuff, shuffling some of the furniture around, placing the rug, dropping off some more donations, etcetera.
We’ve made a decent dent so far, we’ll just have to keep it up. 3 years ago
