E and I had a huge, adventurous weekend. It was quite an undertaking, really. We rearranged our whole house basically. It was a lot like the song about the Little Ole Lady that Swallows a Fly.
I am not sure if any one has ever moved within their own space before. Especially a Condo. There is no driveway/carport/garage or empty spot to help store things in before the hauling.re-arranging takes place. It is not a blank canvass per se. This purposed lots of challenges and extra steps to the whole process. Actually, It has been a 3 day process and although we are at a functioning level now, it is no where near finished.
With the song on repeat in my head, I also ended up having to clean out MT’s room and box up all 0-6 month clothes. I will not lie, I was using his crib as storage for the clothes/toys/etc. that he had outgrown so in order for him to sleep in it, that also had to be tackled. Being that everything was so physically exhausted, I tried not to think of the emotional aspect of folding little tiny clothes that may never been worn again. Some not worn at all and others worn maybe once or even for an hour ....
With every room affected, we basically overhauled the whole place. I think the only thing that is in the same place is our couch. I have a feeling that will be moved very soon though. I received a beautiful 8 top dining room table for our wedding. I have finally agreed to put it in storage at my parents' house until we have somewhere more appropriate for it. We swapped it out with a little round 4 top. This gave us more floor space. I feel very good about it actually. We are aching and exhausted but I finally feel like we are getting something accomplished. It feels like a fresh start. I am excited to keep decluttering our condo. Purging is good. It feels good. Overwhelming but Good
As I type this, My son is asleep in his crib in his room for the first time. So far so good.
