It has been a very busy week. Last Friday, a builder came with his helper and within 4 hours, a bed frame lived crossways of the Astrovan’s back end with a small table extending toward the driver’s seat. A friend provided a foam mattress from the MH she had just sold. I cut five inches off to make it perfect. Unsolicited, my kind neighbors came over and built a closet between the table and driver’s seat.
The stacking Wal-Mart shelves from my late MH (2 sets, 2 high), fit perfectly underneath the bed. Opening the back two van doors, I can also store whatever underneath the bed from that side including the tool box, emergency, and office stuff. I am carrying out food, tableware, pans, etc. and figure out where to store them. I am getting VERY space creative. I’ll add a better view of it when I get it all packed – that should be by the end of next week. Now for the window coverings, screens, etc.
Packing is a good excuse to go through all the drawers, cupboards, and boxes in the house and office and throw out or put on the white elephant table what isn’t needed or wanted anymore. Of course that means I have ten projects started and none finished. Then I have to tackle what needs to go into the notebook computer for use throughout the summer and pack all the flash drives and the portable hard drive with all its history.
I’m tired! God Bless until next time.
