Right now I am so over the whole selling a house, buying a house, thing. It is exhausting packing to move out of a lake house that we have had for the past eight years. How in the world did we accumulate so much stuff in a 950 square foot house and an 800 square foot garage?
This weekend we cleared out my wood stash. The wood I am keeping is now in storage and the rest is in a fire pit burn pile. Boo! I hated letting go of all those bits and pieces. I know I will be needing something out of the stash as soon as I get the wood shop up and running. Oh well.
Because we are selling a lot of the furniture in our current lake house and moving into a larger home, I have started collecting things that we need. We are also keeping a lot of my son and daughter in law’s stuff while they are out of the country. Right now we have the furniture equivalent of 2.5 homes stashed in our suburban home and a storage unit. The clutter is wearing on me.
Here is a tour of our house. The following pictures may not be appropriate for young children, or my mother.
When you enter our front door there is a dry sink that is going to get a major overhaul and become a small buffet in our lake house dining area. ( Envision losing the curvy top section, chicken wire in the doors and reclaimed lumber top and you have the idea.) The piece was a gift and I am grateful, it just can’t live in my front hallway. On a furniture dolly.
The family room is holding a few extra chairs, the closets are popping. I am getting cranky.
I know it is only temporary but I am going to have to start the purge very soon.
Wish me luck. I am going in.
Have a great week,
