Omigod! How could I have been so stoopid or deluded?
Work is scheduled to get started on my new kitchen on Monday and all this time that I've waited (since before Thanksgiving) I simply thought "I'll just empty the cabinets." What was going on in my addled brain that I didn't realize that means the equivalent of moving?! I knew the cabinets are packed to within an inch of their lives. Where will all this stuff go?
Now I can finally appreciate why military families like my friend Donna's have learned to live light. But what does an "accumulator" who's married to an "accumulator" and bred three more do in these circumstances?
Well, I'm digging in and putting in 15 minutes at a stretch. After that, I have to take a break and think of why I'm doing it. ...and watch a bit of Pride and Prejudice. I think watching all that beauty and romance may get me through. At least I'm hoping.
Meanwhile, here's a link to the photos of where we're starting. http://www.flickr.com/photos/75667634@N00/
