I feel dirty.
But I'm happy, so that's good.
Good and dirty.
I have spent this afternoon in one of the spare rooms, unpacking all my books from out on the farm and arranging them on the custom~built cedar shelves I brought with me. Then I kept shuffling them around, cuz I kept finding stuff that I'd forgotten to leave room for on the shelves. I also went ahead and cleared up the office~supply stash that was in there and moved it all into our craftee~study and then set up my TV into the newly opened space on a shelf/drawer unit that Jerry had built years ago. I have to hook~up the TV, VHS player, etc. But that's for another day.
It's for sure not all the unpacking and cleaning, but it's a start. Some stuff, I'm not going to want to keep. I figure, if I've been living without using it for this past year, then how much do I really need it anyway?
It was like Christmas in a way. I unearthed my photo~album from when I was in high~school and college up in PA. And my Jerry came into the room, looked at a pic of me and said that I look about 14 in it. I was actually 23, graduating with my bachelor's.
I do have a few things to hang. One is a painting that was done for me, a still~life arrangement that the artist gave to me for posing for him. Then there are two pieces my grandfather did. One is of flowers, done in chalk, on a brown paper bag from the grocer's and the other is of butterflies and flowers done in colored pen.
And eventually, we need to hook~up the window AC unit. I'm sure that whichever guests stay in that room in the spring~summer~fall will appreciate that! But all in all, I did get a start on unpacking and clearing things up!
So yea for me!
