Operation 2013: Operation Organization Update

*BREATHE*

It seems to be taking forever, but I'm finally making huge progress in organizing my life. You would be shocked to know how much I've gotten accomplished in the storage room this week. I assembled bookshelves Thursday and Friday, and moved all of my school textbooks and VHS tapes there. That's right...VHS, kids! My arms and hands paralyzed after the effort, as I expected, and they're still weak over a day later, but I don't care right now. I'm just glad it's done.

Now I'm going through my old belongings...stuff from years ago...to see what I can throw away, give away, sell, etc. I want to take as less as I can stand to wherever it is I'm moving to eventually. Since it will be a section 8 apartment, I don't expect to have room to store much. No earthly idea what I will do with all of my Bob Ross style paintings yet. There are dozens that I need to find homes for. I also have big boxes of clothes for Goodwill, but no clue how I'll get them there.

I'm pleasantly surprised at what I've found in boxes that I thought I lost in Hurricane Katrina. Thankfully, some things from my childhood and teen years were boxed up and in my aunt's garage. This is what I'm looking at now. I forgot I had so many books. A few collectibles made it through the storm as well. I'll take pics soon so I can show you some of this stuff. Stay tuned.
