Alas, a weekend without my Beetle!
Beyond that and work-stuff, I also got into a spring cleaning mode today. After having built the shelves yesterday and shelved many books, today I decided to tackle some of the rest of the house. I hung up another picture, and I tidied up the living room as best I could. I took out all the trash and recycling.
And then I went berserk. I found all the stray towels and linens in the house and washed them. I organized the shelves in the laundry room. I washed and put away all the dirty dishes, unpacked remaining dishes which hadn't been gotten out since we moved, washed them and put them away, re-organized the kitchen cabinets, cleaned the counters, cleared all the stuff off of the dining room table, did a bit of decorating and organizing in the kitchen, and so on.
I'm sore beyond words, but it's a good sort of sore. I've also come up with some guidelines to /keep/ the kitchen clean and organized. There's still boxes and loose stuff around, and I still need two more bookshelves (at least) to unpack the rest of my books, but overall the house is really starting to look more and more like a HOUSE, and less like a collection of boxes of stuff piled around. Still has a way to go, but I'm happy with the outcome so far.
Whew! Time to take a nice hot shower to try and loosen sore muscles, then go to bed.
